When answering, please explain as if to a sleepy, somewhat backward child

Do other dimensions or frequencies have time as we know it?

When travelling by 'plane from Sydney to LA, why do I arrive before I left Sydney? Also, if I just kept on going from west to east, could I go back in time to pick up the bargains that I should have done back then?

Also, if I travel from east to west: can I find out next weeks Lotto numbers?

Also, is Ivan Anderson right about Vile Vortices? What about Stargates?

Are the pyramids time-portals?

If time can bend, why do we take the longest route?

If we are living in the third dimension, and time is the fourth dimension, would meditation elevate us to the fifth dimension (taking into consideration that we are spiritual beings) not physically ofcourse?

Oy! I now have a headache: which is more effective, Bex or aspirin?

Cheers.

I read it in pback.
I can't find it as (legit) ebook either. I'm surprised, because a lot of his other book are available as ebooks .

I think time is really relative, and works differently on different dimensions of existence. Do I have references to back this up? Does my father-in-law, who communes with his spiritual advisors, count?

Einstein explained relativity best when he said, "Imagine sitting on a stove hot plate for five minutes. Now compare that time to having a beautiful blond sit on you lap for five minutes. Both actions consume the exact same length of time but the latter seems FAR faster than the former!"

I have good news for you Gracy,
I just stumbled upon Trattato dell'etÓ-Una lezione di metafisica by Manlio Sgalambro. A lesson of metaphysics of Age.

I ordered it, just read meaningful fragments.

With old age one leaves the subjective time of his activities, desires, dreams, unspeakable's (in my case ) to enter and stay in the objective time of leafs of the calendar and arms of the clock.

Does you father-in-law ask what time/day is? often?

Hmm... that book looks intriguing, but foreign As a matter of fact, he did ask me just today what day it was.

He quite often speaks of his spiritual advisors (he is an elder in his tribe and somewhat of a healer, called upon to help in hospitals), and how time for the spirit world is quite different than time on our earth, and he speaks of other dimensions as well.

Then he knows a lot. Good for you.

That book exists also in French, but not in English. When i'll get it I will let you know if I find something touchable by us educators

Cool beans. Iʻll take English or Hawaiian. Whichever comes first.
