A description of the experience
I'm Over All That and Other Confessions - Shirley MacLaine
I understand holographic time because of an out-of-body experience I had.
I was in a boat on a river. You could say I was moving along a river of time. I knew what time it was immediately in front of me and immediately behind me, but as I was leaving my body I saw a far greater distance behind the boat on the river and a far greater distance up ahead.
What time would that make each distance I was viewing? It was relative. I realized that all time was happening at once. If I had stayed on the boat the distance behind me would have been in the past. But viewing the scene from above I saw that I was seeing the past in the present.
So, as Einstein promised, time is not linear. It is relative, which, as he says, means it doesn’t really exist. We invented it so we could feel secure in what we call the present.
Because of that experience I understand how our perception of time is relative. When it comes to my understanding space-time, it was more complicated.
