Is Time Simultaneous?

 

Is time simultaneous (meaning that the past, present and future are happening all at once)? According to classical physics of material reasoning, this is not possible. In classical physics all movements are material and are determined by physical laws. These laws are thought of as measurable in terms of initial values of position and velocity of the material objects concerned.

 

Simultaneous Time is Possible in Quantum Physics 

 

However, quantum physics seems to say that simultaneous time is possible. In his book, The Quantum Doctor: A Quantum Physicist Explains the Healing Power of Integral Medicine, Professor Goswami stated that in quantum physics, objects are described as waves of possibility that can be at two (or more) places at once. But in which of these places an object will manifest in a given measurement is not determinable by any physical law or algorithm.

 

Goswami further clarified: In classical physics, all interactions are local, coming from the vicinity with the help of signals traveling through space taking a certain amount of time. But in quantum physics, this isn’t so. There, non-local connections that allow signal-less instantaneous communication exist in addition to local connections. In classical physics, all movement is continuous and can be determined by mathematics and algorithms that require continuity. But in quantum physics, discontinuous quantum leaps are allowed in addition to continuous movement.¬† Read more
