To Grieve is to carry another time

There is no past or future, we only experience it this way. So why does grieving asks; ”can’t we change times simply by changing our perceptions?”, Rovelli suggests that our linear experience of time is due to thermodynamics. The second law of thermodynamics dictates that the total amount of entropy in the universe can never decrease, only increase. For us, or at least in our section of the universe, time operates in only one direction. We also ask ourselves, ”Can we change time?”, we also want to know what the past mistakes taught us from our perception now.

According to physicist Carlo Rovelli that Time passes more quickly the closer one is to a gravitational mass (like a planet or a star or a black hole). This fact is popular in science fiction. A space traveler might return to Earth to find that her friends and family have aged more than she has. Even at different altitudes on Earth, time is different. Rovelli wrote that if identical twins separate early in life and live one in the mountains and one below sea level, then they will find in old age than the one below sea level has aged more, being closer to the center of the planet. Rovelli claims that time is not linear. It is a gravitational field. If he is right, time is like everything else in the universe and must be made up of extremely tiny particles.

I have currently read 4 examples of people grieving and why they are going through that. Showed me that memories are a major essential because the reason why we grieve is that the memories remind us of the time we are with them.  It also reminds of how I thought after my grandma died, I used to think that she might be in a different universe or time travel might exist and I could spend more time with her. Memory also is an essential part of storytelling because the stories that we have exists in time. I also agree that memory is an essential part of storytelling because it reminds us of our past experiences with the person.

If one were to read a novel random page by random page, the novel would not have its intended effect. The effect comes from the order in which you read its words, a reader must remember what she has read before and made connections to what she reads next. Our linear experience of time, combined with our selective memory, means that as we live, humans construct ongoing stories about who we are. Our memories influence our present actions and likewise, our present actions influence our memories, like how we make a mistake and learn from it.

Each recollection of every memory is a process called reconstruction or sometimes reconsolidation changes that memory according to Janice Lee.  As a consolation, Rovelli offers the mind as a time machine when we travel via memory. This is a disappointing compromise. In mourning, memory is only another cause for mourning. It does not change time, it only reminds one that time has passed. Without memory, the sentence you are reading now would not make sense. By the time you got to the word sense, if you did not remember the words before it, you wouldn’t know what sense referred to.

Time Travel

Time Travel

When time travel is finally possible,  I would travel to the past first, because I want to know how everything was, before we even existed and know how life has produced after the extinction of the dinosaurs from the asteroids. I wanted to know if the evolution of every life on earth is a fact. How did life begin? there is not much information about the history of how a human existed. Some do believe that “the gods did it” any other explanation about this topic is conceivable.  I would travel to the past and see how everything improved year after year.

Time travel is the concept of movement between certain points in timeanalogous to movement between different points in space by an object or a person, typically with the use of a hypothetical device known as a time machine. According to research on the BBC about how life forms have existed on earth, nobody has managed it so far yet, but we have come quite a long way in improving. I am quite curious about how everything was, and how it all improved what we have today.

The mass extinction of every life on earth is another topic that I would want to know when I time travel in the past. I would like to see for myself how dinosaurs lived their lives and how everything just became bones and artifacts. There were also many different species of animals and plants that I am not familiar with. According to Wikipedia, The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, also known as the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K–T) extinction, was a sudden mass extinction of three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth, approximately 66 million years ago. With the exception of some ectothermic species such as the leatherback sea turtle and crocodiles, no tetrapods weighing more than 25 kilograms (55 pounds) survived. It marked the end of the Cretaceous period, and with it the end of the entire Mesozoic Era, opening the Cenozoic Era that continues today.

By traveling in the past and seeing the improvement of everything will help me understand the start and end of everything. traveling to a time where everything is full of trees and not many climate changes, because of the wastes and plastic we produced will be a better time to be living on.  I wanna see the beautiful scenery of the world and the peaceful mountains and green trees. Even though it may not be safe at the time, because of animals that are loose, it will still remain peaceful to me.  The life on earth before it became modern, I think is beautiful, because there, not much wastes to worry about, you can drink fresh water without worrying about pollution. You could even make a peaceful house near the mountains and trees.

In conclusion, time traveling in the past something that would hel[ us discovering the world more. Knowing how everything disappeared and came again. We might even be able to travel to the time when Jesus was born and seeing the other disciples. Traveling at a time before the start of modern times will also help us understand what we did wrong and how earth became earth.

 

 

Teleportation (5 paragraph)

Teleportation

When teleportation is finally possible, I would test the power that it holds, then make a spacesuit built for mars to beat every single country in the second space race. After everything is possible I would then retire on an island.

First thing I’d do? Test out the power. After I know the rules, I’d steal the riches from people that don’t deserve it. Then, using that money, I’d use it all to donate for researchers on disease and poverty and also, everything I’ve ever wanted.  After I ”splurge”, I’d develop a spacesuit built for Mars. Then I’d wear it and teleport to Mars and beat every single country in the second space race.

After that, steal more money and build an enterprise. I would then do tests on myself  (with the world’s greatest scientists) and discover what allows me to teleport. If I can use this kind of power on things like aircraft and spaceships, then I would build a military using more ”acquired” money.  I would then conquer the world after a long war, and pretty much keep everything the same as it is (country’s government would still be in effect, I would just oversee everything and solve all conflicts.)

After that is done, I would get cracking on building a space fleet of warships, mining vessels, and transport vehicles, all using the same teleportation power I have. I would then establish human control over as much space as I could. If I can’t utilize my power to teleport ships and stuff, then I’d just live a semi-average life after I get bored with being rich. I would go to every country that I find interesting and relax there. I would also teleport right at the top of the mountains and take a picture with me on it and admire the awesome view.

In conclusion, just by having teleporting existing in this world, it would make massive changes around the world.  If it is in the hands of the right person because we don’t want a selfish person having it. It would also decrease the amount of poverty in the world and get to know space-traveling easier.

Three songs (5 paragraph)

 

Three Songs

There are three songs that have caught my attention this year. First Yesterday, by “the Beatles”. Yesterday is an old song that I have heard a friend play, I have never got sick of hearing. The second song is “Hey Jude” it is also by “the Beatles” I also heard from a friend and I have grown attached to the song this year. The third song is “Sunday Best” by Surfaces. Every time I hear this song it makes me cheer up and be positive.

The song Yesterday by the Beatles is about Its about a Woman that was sick. that it is about his mom dying.  She went to the hospital and died there the night after she was admitted. Her Son thought she left him because He may have said the wrong thing. How This is a very sad song. One minute, you’re happily in love with someone, enjoying the relationship. The next thing you know, you’re wondering how things went wrong, distressed. I can relate, somewhat. But, in the end, there is hope…”I believe in yesterday”. Sometimes, I think hope is all you’ve got. Amazing song. Uplifting and depressing at the same time.

The second song Hey Jude by Beatles. Hey, Jude is mainly about “Hey Jude, don’t make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better”He is trying to tell Julien that although things are bad he can turn it around. Basically the English expression, ‘chin up it can’t get any worse’. Fate is in your own hands. “You were made to go out and get her, “John thinks it was Paul talking to him in regard to Yoko. It is basically Paul generalizing by telling the heartbroken to go out and don’t be afraid of rejection. “For well you know that it’s a fool, Who plays it cool. By making his world a little colder” He is saying it is OKAY to share your emotions, only fools bottle it all inside. He’s basically saying it is okay to have feelings.

The third is Sunday best by surfaces the song lyric “every day can be a better day despite the challenge/ All you gotta do is leave it better than you found it”, showed that  No matter what happens it could still be a better day. The part of the song when it says “Everyone falls down sometimes/But you just gotta know it’ll all be fine, its ok” showed that no matter what the challenge is or if you fail something you should still know that you will be fine. “Somedays you wake up and nothing works you feel surrounded/Gotta give your feet some gravity to get you grounded” showed that even if there are many challenges in life you should still have a positive outlook in life no matter what because that is what would make you rise up again.

In conclusion, the song Yesterday is one of the songs that got me into the Beatles, so it will always be a special song for me. I feel that people here tend to talk down about the really popular hits and talk up the lesser-known songs, but I still love it all. Hey, Jude is also a great song in my book, and there’s not a soul who could get me to change my mind. this song is bittersweet in some way it seems kinda sweet to me but when you really listen to what he is saying the sadness just pours out of his words its a beautiful song and I think he is saying that he had his love at one time and everything seems so clear and easy and fun to him but he lost that love and now its all messed up and he is looking back at the past. The song “Sunday best” by surfaces gives me a positive outlook in life every time I hear it.
