Conception of time in past, present and future

  1. Dec 12, 2007 #1
    say if there is some kind of being like god, then when is its present? since it existed from the start and will last forever

    if god travels to the future or past, would he be able to meet himself, and would they share the same mind or will they think for themselves?

    The standard theological response is that god is 'eternal', or outside of time.

    In this sense, the universe is like a book. A god could go to any page and read as far as he likes, then select another page, at random, and read from there.

    There are of course all sorts of problems with the idea of anything being eternal, since its a somewhat empty and meaningless word.

    There is no time only a constant present.
