“This moment is all there is.” – Rumi
It was Einstein who first really popularized the notion of a four-dimensional space time where the past, present, and future all exist simultaneously. From this deterministic view, all of realize exists as an unchanging chunk whereby we only experience a tiny slice (in time), moving from the past to the future, moment by moment. Decades later, this idea was expanded to include not just our universe, but multiple universes, perhaps an infinite number of universes. Some modern views now speculate that there exists an infinite number of universes where every conceivable and inconceivable combination events and laws exist in some massive cosmological, ever-existent now. Some suggest this infinite totality of now is god. I like this idea!!
