The reason that we can get lost in the world is that we don’t have any boundaries. We are constantly crossing and reconnecting with everything that is around us.
It is a dangerous thing. The border between what is real and what is not is a thin one, so when we cross boundaries or get lost in the space-time continuum we can end up being pulled to different places and different times. This is why it is crucial to learn what is real and what isn’t.
Like the map of the world itself, we have very little idea of what is really out there. We dont have the ability to see the boundaries and boundaries are always shifting. So we have to learn where the borders are and how to navigate the space-time continuum we all live in.
We learned something new this week when we learned that space-time is not the same as time-space, but instead it is one of those concepts that are only slightly different, you know, kind of like colors and shapes are very similar, but have very different properties. Space-time is actually much more fluid.
So how do we navigate? We learn to use our senses and our brains to learn about the space-time continuum. Our senses tell us the relative sizes of objects, our brains make sense of all the moving objects, and the brain tells us when to use our senses to stay safe, and when it is more important to use our brain to stay on the right side of the continuum.
Space-time is very much a continuum, as opposed to a discrete space. So instead of one object on the continuum, there are many objects that are moving relative to each other. So for instance, the Earth is actually moving relative to our Sun. So instead of just one object, we have many objects, which means our brain learns how to use our senses.
This is true and important, but the real reason our brain learns how to use our senses is when our senses have trouble telling the difference between one motion and another. So when we are trying to distinguish between a bird flying overhead and a man walking across the street, our brains aren’t being very effective at making this distinction. When the brain is trying to make a distinction, it will get it from the environment around us.
When we look at the world around us, we see things we can’t possibly see. This is true of every sense we have, including our eyes. The brain needs to learn how to use all our senses to identify what is around us. The problem is that when we are trying to do this, the brain gets confused. The brain has to learn how to tell the difference between “this bird” and “that man”.
The bird is more likely to be a crow, and the man would be a human. The bird is more likely to be a crow, and the man would be a crow. The bird is more likely to be a crow, and the man would be a human, but the man is more likely to be a human.
That’s human geography, the act of identifying a person based on one’s surroundings. The problem, it seems, is that we are prone to making these identifications. It’s like when we look at a sunset, and say, “That’s the moon.” The problem is that the moon can’t be anything but a bright, full-moon, but we identify it as the moon because it was there before our eyes.
