    Life itself is a tree in the dimension of time, which is a universe parellel to our own, and the only other way into that universe is through thought, and prolly with computers at some point.
    humans as a whole is a large branch, civilations being another branch off that, nations being the leaves ... the cells within the leaves are the individual people.
    but thats more in the physical aspect, but also goes the same way with the mental.. you can look around and such, but thers always stuff you dont "see" because the tree trunk, or other leaves are in the way.

    so what do you's think?
    any oppinioons?

    It is, perhaps, a nice visual analogy. (I presume you mean whole and not hole, otherwise I would be just confused by what you have written.)

    Speculation of this sort is interesting, but in the absence of evidence it is not exactly science.

    Welcome to the forum by the way.

    lol oops yea there fixed er up a bit lol a few errors i have made..

    but yea lol

    thanks a lot

    lol it brings up the question... what is time? its somthing we all experience... its somthing that chemicalyreversible.. but we can only mesure it :s

    if the universe stoped expanding would time cease to exist?

    would it start going backwards?

    continuing on

    then if the universe is expanding... that means there was a "big bang".. was that simply a black hole exploding that had too much mass? like putting millions of billions of tons of pleutonium under the same amount of pressure?

    It's very interesting you bring this up, and it's a theory that I've also thought about for a long time. Only instead of other civilizations, perhaps it's a tree where the roots are our (Earth) past, and the branches our future. But we only choose one branch through our actions, and the more decisions we make, the more branched appear. Eventually, all the branches have an end (death). When you mentioned seeking a way into that dimention of time, I think that we as humans have the capabillity to do so within our minds, as dreams. This leads us into the theory of Astral Projection, maybe the dimention of time isn't a dimention, but a place. And to reach this place somewhere in the infinitive universe, is with our minds. It's like when we experience Deja Vu - is it really only in our head, or does it show similarities between what we live by climbing through the tree on time in our dreams, colliding with what we're living?

    Take a look at Qabbalah or Kabbalah

    That's based on the Tree of Life

    And you don't have to be Jewish to understand it

    Thanks, Selene. I researched Kabbalah and the Sephirot, I hadn't any idea that the Jewish religion had a Tree of Life, only their tree is created by actions and emotion rather than time. I found a list off Wikipedia that explained them all,

    1. Keter - Crown - Divine Plan/ Creator/ infinite light/ Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh - I AM THAT I AM (Supreme/ Total Consciousness)

    2. Chokmah - Divine Reality/ revelation/ Yesh me-ayin - being from nothingness (Power of Wisdom)

    3. Binah - Understanding/ repentance/ reason (Power of Love)

    4. Chesed - Mercy/ Grace/ Love of (intention to emulate) God (Power of Vision)

    5. Gevurah - Judgment/ strength/ determination (Power of Intention)

    6. Tipheret - Symmetry/ balance/ compassion (Creative Power)

    7. Netzach - Contemplation/ Initiative/ persistence (Power of the Eternal Now)

    8. Hod - Surrender/ sincerity/ steadfastness (Intellectual/ Observational Power)

    9.Yesod - Foundation/ wholly remembering/ coherent knowledge (Power of Manifesting)

    10. Malkuth - Lower Crown - Kingdom/ physical presence/ vision and illusion (Power of Healing/ Accomplishment/ Level of Realization of Divine Plan)

    I have been studying and practicing Kabbalah for 20 years and there are many applications.

    It provides many exercises for the mind in contemplating the self and the world outside.

    Virtually everything can be placed on the tree.

    The creative impulse describing creation comes down from the tree in a zig zag fashion through each sephirah from Kether to malkuth often described as lightening, the top triad being the pure creative impulse down to the next triad which is thought, then to the next which is emotion and then onto the last which is the physical plane.

    Pathworking is done from the bottom up and each route from one sephirah to the next as a unique path which is a relation of both of the sephirah either side.

    Kabbalists regard the central pillar as the route of balance with the left and right sephirah as opposite poles.

    Working the paths is a great way of balancing the self as well as understanding it's nature and the natural world.

    If you want to exercise the mind scientifically, philosophically, metaphysically mathematically and magically then the Kabbalah is an invaluable tool.
