No Going Back
I am now sure that I don't want to go back to the past. Even if I could, diary...if I could choose any time, anywhere in the past, not just human history, but prehistoric time... I won't.
I finally understand it now. It is not about "good" or "bad". Both "good" and "bad" are social constructs. Let's beat the dead horse one last time... people want to go back in time to kill dictators, because they were bad. All premises like this fail now. Without considering ramification of time-traveling, taking the action alone, it can't be just. You might think "justice" is a social construct, too. I'm talking about God's justice, meaning God's rule.
Yes diary. You can't go back in time for "good" or "bad". It's wholly unfathomable. There is time, or something that contains... measures the proceedings. But it must proceed, you see? It must go on. All things must go on. Nobody goes back. Even as you're looking at an old photo, nothing is going back. First we have established there is no such thing as a "heart", as in "my heart wants..." the mind retrieves some memory and does some thinking, but nothing is going back.
There is no going back. There is never going back, diary.
It makes me feel a whole lot better.
I am in peace now.
