How Can we Measure What Does Not Exist

“Time brings all things to pass.”


Existence it’s necessary for time to be, otherwise time has no thing to attach itself to it, or run after, or keep time for, no existence, no time, existence of something, the beginning of time.

Time Start

However today Scientist are not so sure, developments in theoretical physics, especially the rise of string theory, have changed their perspective. The pre-bang universe has become the latest frontier of cosmology.

But do not take my word for it,  could be old news Scientifically speaking, I am not a Cosmologist with the latest paper on it, what I am saying had a date around 2006, who knows what is the latest word on it.

However like all of you, even a newborn, we are all running out of time, as we read this.

But if one thing we can be sure of it, is that time is running, as we speak, or remain silent, move, or not, sleep or counscious, as you wake up, you are already a few hours older, and by the end of the day, well another day it’s gone!


Fling me across the fabric of time and the seas of space. Make me nothing and from nothing-everything. The Past, the Future, O dear, is from you; you should regard both these as one.



Don’t delay, or procrastinate every day will come, at its appointed time, be ready for it.

The fool suffers death twice, first for fearing it during his life, and the second, for wanting to postpone it, when it appears before him.

The two most powerful warriors are patience and time. – Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace.

Leo Tolstoy, the greatest humanist, put these words in General Kutuzov’s mouth. And, actually, it is a combination of two quotes. In book ten, the General says:

But believe me, my dear boy, there is nothing stronger than those two: patience and time, they will do it all.

Later, he repeats this idea in his thought: They must understand that we can only lose by taking the offensive. Patience and time are my warriors, my champion.

War And Peace

But not over worry about time, take it from Einstein:

In the Special Theory of Relativity, Einstein determined that time is relative–in other words, the rate at which time passes depends on your frame of reference. … The faster a clock moves, the slower time passes according to someone in a different frame of reference.

    No matter the speed of your clock, you can never catch time. The universe is in constant motion tumbling through space, where there’s no beginning nor end. Time is only relative to the speed of life.

    Yo me quedo en lo más elemental del tiempo por porque el va conjugando una serie de experiencias que nos sirve para definir qué es lo que queremos, lo que nos gusta y lo que no y también es un buen remedio hasta para arreglar situaciones sentimentales, y las cosas esenciales de vida. Un gran artículo para aclarar conceptos. Un gran abrazo.

    Whatever happens, dear Mr. Brigido, let it be! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  4. Relativity of how we experience time has always fascinated me. Just as the way we can adjust and try bending the dimensions of time which we are probably doing as long as we live, consciously or subconsciously.
    The more years pass by, the more I feel like time is not only running, but making huge leaps. I suppose, that comes with the territory. Small kids and very old people do not experience time as the most restricting factor. They both are closer to the eternity – kids because they just came from there, people of advanced age – because they see it as the next stop.
    try convincing about that somebody who’s on 10 schedules 24/7, always short of time.
    Leo Tolstoy was mandatory literature during my high school, I never read it later in life. However, I read original in Russian.
    Our experiences also change abnormally, it’s like hard to recognize that young person so convinced about knowing everything.
    I hope we get enough time for whatever we have decided to accomplish. well, that might be a bit of utopia, but still, it’s good to look forward to that. And, no, we can never outrun the time. I believe I said that in Dimensions of time last year.
    I hope you are ok and doing ok. It’s been a while. All the best and it’s pleasure to read the new post!

      Yes Inese, I cannot speak for everybody but at least now, in my old age, time seems already almost all gone!
      I smile at remembering as a child, how it seemed then, I will never be out of school, now a consideration more poignant, since today we have a celebratory lunch for our fifty year anniversary of our first year in college.
      I saw classmates I had not seeing in years, but we all had something in common, we did not look young anymore, rather old…average between 68-70.
      And sure there’s not much time left, therefore the name of my post: Time Is Running Out.
      And it’s going fast!
      We talk so much about time being relative, well someone need to invent a going back time machine, as far I am concerned.
      And no, I am not unhappy at being old, just surprised it was such a short a time.
      “Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.”
      Psalms 144:4, KJV
      Oh well, here we are for a little while.
      Thank you for your thoughtful comment Inese. 😊

    At my age time travels much too fast toward the inevitable SNAP!

    • theburningheart says:

      Don, what do you think, inspired me to write this post about time running out?
      You got it, the speed momentum towards the inevitable SNAP! 🤦‍♂️

  6. I aslo have the feeling that the older I get the quicker time passes, because less and less time will be at disposal! Many thanks, Mr. Brogido, for having made us think about time and that patience and humbless are very important!:)
    Very best regards

    I love Einstein’s quote–hilarious! And so true.
    As for Rumi…well, if only I COULD become as humble as dust and ashes. If only.
    A worthy goal…..

    PS: I read the sample for The Master and Margarita. I like how the conversation almost immediately jumped into philosophical ruminations…but I felt unrooted to what was going on. I’m not sure if my IQ has dropped in recent years, working on all the reality TV shows that I do, or if maybe the translation wasn’t that great. It’s also out of my book budget, lol (not the 1.99 and 2.99 prices I’m used to). But I gave it a go! Just wanted to let you know and thank you for passing the suggestion along!

    • theburningheart says:

      You can buy the book used for as low as $3.89 and free shipping in Abebooks, no reason to spend a lot of money buying it new.

      Thank you for your comment. 😊

    Thank you, B.H. 🙂

  9. Time is an aspect of materia, it is not an aspect of spirit! I feel we are timeless beings, experiencing a physico-electro-magnetic-chemical body to learn limitation, so that we can become more conscious and responsible to do even greater works in the higher dimensions, spiritual realms, embracing eventually conjunction with the Creator! Of course there is a choice also to stay in lower physical dimensions to do dark work!

    • theburningheart says:

      Yes Bridget, I agree with your thoughts in general, which you share with us, on a topic so profound that although we can reason, it’s sometimes difficult to express, due to the subjective, and speculative nature of the topic, where many people do not see things eye to eye, due to the abundance of opinions, and creeds on the subject.
      We thank you for your response. 😊

  11. What a strange concept, time is. Definitely relative and during COVID time has had such curious effects upon us all.

    • theburningheart says:

      Yes, as life pass, we cannot but feel we change, specially into old age…
      About Covid, no doubt limited us, and threw a wrench on many people’s plans, in a way put life on hold.

    • theburningheart says:

      Well, in this matter of Covid-19 it’s as the old saying:

      “Everybody as an opinion, as they have an asshole.”

  12. I love Leo Tolstoy. I cannot wait to own that book again. Wow

  13. This is post is most awesome post I read today.👏😊
    Thanks for sharing
