And Eternity in an Hour

To see a world in a grain of sand
and a heaven in a wild flower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.

Time is a fundamental part of the dynamics of the reality we live in. It is often associated with clock time, as instrument to resolve issues on timing. Time in itself however, as principle of the  dynamic organisation of the reality that we interact with, requires deeper understanding. This paper presents two insights, the 4D nature of Time, and Time as fractal. Together they make it possible to address the dynamic interfacing by which we change and attune our interaction within our context. This has practical consequences, as this associates with i.a our understanding of our environment, and the health of our body. A deeper issue will also be addressed: the way our experience of time changes our embedding in multiple nested processes and vice-versa, as a result of which we can interact with nature in a much more fundamental manner. This helps understand the nature of healing, and is based on a condensation of state multiplicity, on basis of the time fractal dynamic by which those processes are interconnected. As this deals with the Interface – and interphasing – this is a realm where the objective and subjective are interconnected, and the quantitative formulation of the reality of objects is dual to the qualitative realisation of process involvement. Due to the technical nature of the paper, graphic representation or simple examples are added where possible.

Key words:

Time, Timing, process, Fractal, 4D, interface, condensation, interconnectedness
