A New Theory On Time Indicates Present And Future Exist Simultaneously

According to a new controversial theory, everything around us is intricately planned, and each and everyone’s destiny has already been decided. The new theory suggests that time does not PASS and that everything is ever-present.

In fact, time is not linear as we have been thinking all along, and everything around us is ever present.

The researchers indicates that time should be regarded as a dimension of spacetime, as relativity theory holds — so it does not pass by us in some way, because spacetime doesn’t. Instead, time is part of the uniform larger fabric of the universe, not something moving around inside it.According to a scientist, everything that has happened, and everything that will happen is in fact occurring at this very moment as time is positioned in space.

The new theory proposed by Dr. Bradford Skow, an associated professor of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) indicates that if we were to look down on the universe, we would actually observe time and events spreading out in all directions.

So what does this actually mean? Well, it suggests that time as we know it is incorrect, in other words, it’s not linear as we have been thinking all along. In fact, everything around us is ever present.

The new theory is detailed in Dr. Skow’s book, Objective Beginning, where he writes: “When you ask people, ‘Tell me about the passage of time,’ they usually make a metaphor.

“They say time flows like a river, or we move through time like a ship sailing through the sea.”

The author argues that he “wouldn’t want to believe in that unless I saw good arguments for it.”

In “Objective Becoming,” Skow aims to convince readers that things could hardly be otherwise. To do so, he spends much of the book considering competing ideas about time — the ones that assume time does pass or move by us in some way. “I was interested in seeing what kind of view of the universe you would have if you took these metaphors about the passage of time very, very seriously,” Skow says.

Dr. Skow believes that in a so-called ‘block universe- a theory which states that the past, present and future exist simultaneously.

In other words, this means that once an even has occurred, it continues to exist somewhere in space-time.

The new ‘controversial’ theory is backed up by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity which indicates that space and time are in fact part of an intricate four-dimensional structure where everything that has occurred has its own coordinates in space-time.

Dr. Skow further details:

“The block universe theory says you’re spread out in time, something like the way you’re spread out in space. We’re not located at a single time.”

Dr. Skow agrees that while things change and we see time as if it were passing, Dr. Skow believes that we are in a ‘scattered conditions’ and that different parts of time may be dotted around the infinite universe.


Does timepass? Philosopher Brad Skow’s new book says it does — but not in the way youmay think.


  1. The same principle was introduced by me in 2011 during the FQXi essay contest. I proposed "Total Simultaneity" (inside the so called "Planck area") where past and future are simultaneous present as Eternal Now Moments. Our consciousness becomes aware of "the flow of time" through so called Reality Loops that are probabilities inside Totl Simultaneity. For my latest evolutions on the theory see my latest essay on FQXi : "FOUNDATIONAL QUANTUM REALITY LOOPS"

  2. It is not any new theory of time. The law of Energy holds its eternity; therefore whatever is done Exists whatever will be done Exists and whatever is being done also Exists. This makes three- dimensional time frame. Whatever I have written here can be expanded and elaborated.

  3. Henry David Thoreau wrote "The meeting of two eternities; the past and the future is precisely the present". Pretty close, huh?

  4. Every thing is preexisted but with multiple options.. we chose a particular time frame with our choice of karma..here comes multiverse theory..hence this Beautiful complex system we are living in gives us to chose our destiny basis our choice of karma on a perticular moment of time.

  5. Well, I highly doubt this theory of existence of present, past and future simultaneously. My only contradict is decomposition of materials through time travel. If every phase of time would have been presented simultaneously even though we are not able to access it, materials must not have decomposition characteristics.

    1. I am inclined to think of Akshay's point as far more than just interesting. I view it as compelling and persuasive.
