it is always now

that i'm actually not sure what his precise policy is, or
the intended strategy, but -- mmm, middle of the album, luke
vibert reliably says: yes, it's time for this album's sloppy
headfuck track, i.e. juicy luke vibert off tally hoe!

for musipal, your one for this album is "It Is Always Now,
All Of It Is Now"

shuffle put it on again, and i'm nodding, and thinking: we
need to get luke vibert as a guest onto fox news. hello,
luke vibert, thanks for fox news. then vibert says, "it is
always now, all of it is now" and the way fox news goes the
host will have a counter-argument to this, and i dunno, i'd
watch it

that fox news has a serious talent problem. even the
third-rate lou dobbs has been blammed; grave times indeed. i
think we still have Sean Hannity? he's perfect, actually

Sean Hannity: Is it not only true, Mr. Vibert, that you
not only composed "It is Always Now, All Of It Is Now"
earlier, but if we were to listen to it later, it would then
also be later?

Luke Vibert: But if you listen to it now, it would still be

Sean Hannity: That may be true, but is it not also, perhaps,
bits of the past, and bits of the future, mixed up to create
something not quite as good as either?

Luke Vibert: Errrr

and this is just pilfering a line from The Might Boosh and
this is how they'd get him. careful on there luke

Either the present is eternal or it doesn’t exist. I’m
not sure.

yes we are doomed to live out whatever our current state
might be, we lack perspective for anything else. felt quite
trapped the other day thinking about this, but it ought to
be liberating

Been thinking about this: assuming god was able to break
free from now, meaning he is able to experience past present
and future at will, he would have to do so at a particular
point of "time" relative to his existence. If god has his
own evolving intuition (meaning what he instantly knows at
any particular time) he should then have to re experience
every point of time at every change in his intuition.
Basically even then you woulndt have the complete view of
all that could happen, even god would be as trapped as us in
his conciusness (nowness). Could god come up with the
predicates to understand his own being?

i don't think we understand time. what happens if it has an
up-down axis or more as well as past>present>future being a
unidirectional linear thing? and the block universe takes
everything as being now, how does that work if now has more
than one set of ordinates?

that is just what i imagined while thinking about
experiencing the past or future with your current self, it
would add dimensions of time, or it would have to happen in
another dimension of time. what i wonder is however
conscious god is, he would still be trapped in whatever his
"now" is, however vast. as consciousness seems to always be
a delimitation of things, a cut from reality. if he could
know it all at once then how boring would that be? or how
noisy? noisy as death

this just showed up in my playlist (whether
serendipity or tracking algorithm) and PBS spacetime is
usually worth a watch. the arrow of time gets a nice
exploration here
