Theory of everything- writes his books by moving the cheek; when you feel like making excuses, look at him solving most difficult problems while being paralyzed.
The theory is that the universe is expanding and at some point, it will shrink back and then the time would reverse; the future would happen in the past.
Benjamin said that time will never reverse; psychological time (Einstein talked about; time flies when you’re with somebody you love, if you hate your job seconds are very long and it all moves forward), cosmological time (universal time; always moves forward) and thermodynamic time (heat, always moving in one direction). “Life is long if you know how to use it.”- shortness of life
Time Entropy (things get more disorderly every day), if Stephen is correct then your time is continually moving in one direction. We’re people moving through time.
“It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste most of it, life is long enough and a fair amount has been given to us for highest achievements if it was all well invested. So many of us are burning time.”
The second we expect endless time or want to reverse mistakes, we will spend our time thinking it’s not that valuable. Money is lost and made, but not time.
What do you invest your time in? Improving, doubling down on yourself.
One of the ways we spend it is by making other people rich, so we get a little money to use in our spare time; Picasso said to avoid that dichotomy. The solution for Entropy is directly injecting energy, concentration, focus on your life.
Most people are doing, but not thinking like an animal in a rat race, step out of it. If you don’t do that, everything will slowly decay. Mike Tyson went from 400 million to 15 grand. Entropy is the fact that it’s a little bit harder to lose weight every day as you decay.
When you get out of the college, you get less and less social and happy, love is getting worse… you sleep like a baby at 10, at 40 most people take all sorts of drugs.
The real take away is remembering the future (reversal of time); when you take time to learn, you will begin to learn from other people, to transcend time, make friends with people no longer alive- they will tell you what to do, we choose who’s child you want to be, what to take from that.
My enemy is expectancy; tomorrow is guaranteed, can’t wait it will be Friday, vacation… Use the time now, invest in learning from the greatest minds. The penalty for not doing that is making your life shorter, more painful than it needs to be. The game is not over yet, so you have a choice, most people are afraid of the arrow of time, you don’t have to be.
How have you been squandering your time?
What or who could you be embracing that you have been procrastinating seeking out?
What are you going to do to slow down entropy?
