Folding Time

“From Nikola Tesla: “Despite what some say about multi-tasking, many people can only do one thing at a time. Even though you might be a cook, for instance, chopping the potatoes at the same time you are watching the butter melt at the same time you grab the lettuce out of the refrigerator and check to see if you have enough salad bowls, you are not literally doing two things at once: instead you are expanding your specific relationship to Time/Space. It may seem to be parsing my definitions too finely here, yet when you are cooking a meal, the one thing you are doing is cooking it, which includes the parts of preparation, execution and completion: the completed meal is a whole consisting of numerous whole parts in space that demands time in order to be formed. In short, you have expanded your awareness of the processes so that the meal is seen as a one whole thing, so that you really are doing only that one thing. 

“This is, in short, creativity: to perceive multiple aspects at once and then retain your awareness of the whole throughout the process. The Divine Being is a creator in that sense: aware of the whole and of specific parts of that whole simultaneously with an end result in mind. Now: only the Divine Being cant truly have this simultaneous command of space and time because that Being is Space and Time: this Being is what happen and is the things to which things are happening.

“And it is this aspect of divinity that has the clue to Folding Time: not only by processing multiple inputs but by being the inputs and the processes as well. For a human being, this requires a flexible sureness of self: not only an awareness of the way time operates in space, as with multiple times being re presented simultaneously on different parts of the planet, but an expanded sense of the relative relationships that Time/Space creates.”
