Time's arrow - NOT amateur radio

Often, new discoveries in science are counter-intuitive and they do not sit comfortably with our experiences. 

One of these is quantum mechanics, where everything can be described as a wave that exits in all space and all time. OK, the experience now is the most probable.

Time may be a bit like this. In our everyday experience, time flows from the past into the future. However, the future and the past may be always there. In the future we may find out that time is an illusion.

Think of Schrodinger's cat: we cannot know if it is alive or dead until we open the box. Various interpretations have been put forward.

All I am saying is time is a mystery and one day our understanding of it could be totally different.
