Time is one thing that I don't know can be proven, unless you've been here before.

Personally, I'm a sceptic.(Not septic LOL)

I was disappointed that the show Madame Secretary seemed to kind of drizzle out.  Talk about alternate reality it seems like during Republican administration, television has to concoct a different political reality.  You had the successful show, West Wing, during the George W Bush administration.  Then you had Madame Secretary.

A noun is a person, place, thing or Idea.  So time, the present, past, future definitely exist, if only as an idea, or family of ideas.  Now one can ask whether time has any meaning outside of the structure of consciousness, perhaps not.  But if you look at Immanuel Kant, time is part of the structure of consciousness, and for Kant a necessary part of the structure of consciousness.

Especiallly when five countries have a power of veto.

Back to Time, regardless of whether it's linear, circular or cylindrical, how do you explain deja vu?

It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.

How do you want to explain deja vu?

I think it is a momentary lapse in attention, that when you come back to attention, you feel like you have been there before, because you have, just a second ago you were staring out into space, [attention lapse], and now again you are staring out into space (so to speak).

But sometimes there is the feeling that I _dreamed_ this moment before, and that it was terrifying in the dream (anxiety-filled), but when I get to it, it is fine.  Like dreaming of a test, and being immensely unprepared for the test, but when you actually get to (a) moment like that, being reasonably prepared, not because of the dream, but because you are.  Public speaking could be the same thing, dreamt, and then when you get to an actual case, no big deal.  (or big deal, but no problem).

I do believe that dreams _can_be_ prophetic.  I think deja vu is an attention phenomena, not (necessarily) a time phenomena, but you (or others) can explain it as such if you want.

veto envy.

Time is a structure that can't be escaped in material reality but it happens in dreams. I have vivid memories of three dreams that I had in childhood, they only happen in my recollection and I am not afraid of them anymore. 

Yet I can remember with clarity and detail as if they happened when I was awake.
Those memories seem as important as a Christmas morning that happens in 1975 in material reality.

Right On!

Deja vu. 
IF past, present and future are simultaneous then an occasional "bleed through" could take the form of deja vu "didn't this already happen?" or of ESP "I think this will or won't happen" intuitively. 

Simultaneity is existence of God or (All That Is) without creation.  Changing states or oscillation provides a perception of linear progression. There is a theory that mostly agrees with relativity but is based on Absolute Simultaneity 

Plato in Timaeus "time and heaven [the world] came into being together that, having been created Simultaeneously [hama], if ever there was to be a dissolution to them, they may be dissolved Simultaneously [hama]. Hama being used here in the temporal sense, not in its etymological use "together."

The French Philosopher, Pierre Hadot, says that the _Timaeus_ is work in the Orphic spirit, versus modern science which is Promethean, interrogation of nature kind of thing.  Think of how Orpheus charmed people, animals, even the rocks and trees, whereas Prometheus stole fire from the gods and also stole the crafts, and gave them to man (and got punished for that, but eventually got out of punishment).  Someday, I will read the Timaeus (again) and maybe that time I could make heads and tails of it!

Timaeus is also said to be Pythagorean.  But, that is like saying, "one thing (we don't understand) is like another thing (we don't understand)".  I think understanding the _Timaeus_, or the _Parmenides_ or the Philebus_, are always in modernity, partial understandings.

One thing the Pythagoreans talked about was Kairios (or Kairos?), the notion of the right time, timeliness, seasonality.  For example, the ninja turtles, (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello) are torwards the beginning of the renaissance.  They had immense talents, but they were also in the right place and the right time, to become the household names they are today.  There are "lesser" renaissance artists who were later, and were elsewhere, where they couldn't get the full breeze in their sails so to speak.  They might of technically been artists as good as the giants, or even better, but they were planted in the shade and couldn't get as much sunshine as the others.

Is the renaissance a linear time phenomenon, or a circular time phenomenon?  Or little bit of A, little bit of 2?
