The mind is an instrument of inter-dimensional awareness
Time is like light, a mystery to most.
Time has remained mysterious, because most of those who have thought about it have projected their thoughts outward. Time may be merely the sequence of events recorded by the brain. Without the necessity of brain-consciousness, there may be no registration, measurement or sense of time.
The same type of mystery exists with respect to space, or the fourth dimension. Thinkers usually project their thoughts outward in search of this hidden dimension. They usually fail to understand that thought itself is a fourth dimensional energy. And mind itself is fourth dimensional. Mind is not brain. Is not consciousness. It is an instrument of inter-dimensional awareness.
On a religious note, it is through mind that the soul may contact the brain.
