A Nation Divided by Turmoil: Biden's Victory is America's Failure

Another long-winded, incoherent speech fraught with inaccuracies and false accusations.  As the polls have closed and ballots are meticulously being counted across key states, many deign to criminalize Trump for his boisterous proclamations and unorthodox leadership. However, the truth of the matter may be far more sinister than you care to imagine...Biden asserts that he and his party maintain the moral high ground in this tumultuous race for presidency. But do they really? In fact, the vast majority of Southern Democrats vehemently opposed a ban on slavery while the Republican party sought to win their freedom. Indeed, it may appear that times have changed... unless you bother to read the many defamatory statements made throughout Biden's long and storied political career -- statements targeting both women and African Americans. Although to be safe, let's assume his bigotry extended far beyond that which we've covered. So as it now seems more certain than ever that we'

Does Time Exist?

A second hand relentlessly passes across a clock's face, counting off the seconds of our remaining time on Earth. We rely on these tiny measurements just as readily as we trust our lives to the skilled hands of a doctor, with the certainty that they have our best interests in mind. And yet we all know that time is a mere construct based on the observance of entropy. As things move from an ordered state to one of disorder, we recognize the effects of time as an inevitable transition. But this is simply the second law of thermodynamics in action -- the total entropy of a system can never decrease over time.

Thus, the arrow of time is born. And within this one-way street, we understand that for every action to occur, an underlying cause must precede it. This concept of cause and effect is part of our fundamental experience of reality. But what happens when causality is broken? "Impossible!" you say. Well, welcome to the world of quantum mechanics where causality is no less certain than the release of George R.R. Martin's long awaited sequel...

In fact, indefinite causality has been actively demonstrated by researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia. When the tiniest building blocks of nature are exempt from the adhering to common logic and the fundamental rules of General Relativity, it forces you to reassess everything we know about the cosmos. 

Furthermore, quantum entanglement occurs when a pair or group of particles cannot be described independently of its counterparts -- even when separated by vast distances, such as those present within a universal scale. At first glance, this would seem to violate FTL (Faster Than Light) travel, but that constant only applies to objects with a mass greater than zero. 

Albert Einstein once famously described quantum entanglement as "spooky action at a distance."

So when thinking of time, perhaps it's worth adopting a new perspective which takes into account the inherent absurdity of man's illusion that it exists beyond our tiny measurements and unavailing schedules. Because even the passage of time is dependent upon the distortion of space caused by massive objects. And not only is time travel to the future a possibility -- it's an achievement we've already laid claim to. But perhaps that's worthy of an altogether separate discussion...
