A moment of our time – part 3

Revisiting part 3 of my “A moment of our time” piece of work. I need to revisit the idea of the arrow of time or time’s arrow, as detailed below, as I believe the first use of the idea was by Arthur Eddington in 1927.

As I mentioned this is a very long piece of work that I put together about what happens in any one given moment of time without putting some human construct of definition time. I could say a second of time but we humans have come up with some very accurate methods of putting an actual physical meaning to one second through using atomic clocks and physics. My moment is that indeterminable instant and at that same instant what is happening to all the matter and energy around us in that instant. The third installment……

“As individuals, we live our lives within the arrow of time as Roger Penrose put it in a series of moments from our birth to our death. For most of the time we live in a linear world. If we are driving then our thoughts in the next moment will be on what is happening to the vehicles around us, those that directly affect us. If we are working we are thinking about how to continue the task we are doing at that moment whether it be completing an email or replying to a colleague in a meeting or one of the myriad other things that make up a working day in the office. Of course for countless millions who do not work in an office their working day thoughts are very different but they too are more than likely going through a sequential set of thoughts and moments. This is the normal human condition. Until recently, and for most of those able to read my text, we do not have to think about where the next meal comes from just to linger over what to eat. For most of history and even now for some, we would have had to worry about whether there was a large predator out there and whether we would end up as lunch for something else. The 21st century has for many of us given us a different series of moments to live through.”
