whenever speaking of existence, it is required (by me) to explain how something does or does not exist. without this clarification - nothing is communicated.
so.. do unicorns exist? if not, then what are we talking about? to discuss 'nothing' would involve a great deal of silence, so we must be talking about something.
then, is our imagination real? to exist only in our imagination is somehow non existent? what about "government", does government exist? how does it exist?
obviously the imagined existence of the State results in many 'real' world manipulations, as fantasy books result from an imagined modification of states that actually do exist on earth (horses, horns, etc). everything is a reflection of everything else.
some can complicate time far more than i.. but my present position on Time is:
1. there is no yesterday or tomorrow, only right now
2. "time" is what keeps it from being yesterday or tomorrow, "forever"
3. the organization of 'all things in the universe' which made yesterday possible will never again align themselves in the exact same way, just as future states of organization cannot be known until determination.
thus.. time exists as a perspective regarding change
time is an illusion regarding the nature of change
(nothing need be complicated.. )
