One reason we like TV/Movies so much is the experience is like a dream state. Scenes flash through just as in a dream. And time can be experienced as past, present, or future. Another name for this is time/space verses space/time which is our wakened experience. Space/time is linear and 4 dimensional. The fourth being Time itself and since there is only one dimension of time, it is experienced in a linear fashion (Now, now, now).
In our dreams just as in the movies time/space works the opposite of space/time. Our dreams (also TV/movies) move from one location to another with no regard to space because space is only one dimensional. You remain still during the whole experience. In Time/Space there are three dimensions of time and only one of space which is “here”(where ever you are having the experience). The point where Time/Space and Space/Time intersect is called “right here and now”!
From this we can see how time and space are relative… quite literally!
So let’s review, Space/Time has three dimensions of space – up/down/around, while Time/Space is three dimensions of time – past, present, future. When awake we can only experience time in a linear motion, while dreaming we can only experience one space – here (you do not move while sleeping). On TV/Movies there is the freedom to experience both, a good example of this would be in the movie the Matrix Reloaded there is a scene with the villains going through a door, closing it and when opened a different place is experienced, just as we do in our dreams. Although it is not always so abrupt in dreams, often the experience is a fading from one scene to another… each person will experience dreams slightly differently. If you are having nightmares or frightful dreams then TV/Movies will be less appealing too. Of course this is my personal experience and this realization came to me after reading The Law of One series, The Teachings of RA. So if you would like to know more, please read this series and do your own research, don’t just take my word for it. I am happy to answer questions if I can.
Try this experiment using your power of imagination. When riding in a car (better to not be driving) imagine the car is stationary and the world is moving. Staring straight forward and broadening your field of view, relax your mind into the experience… you have just shifted your experience into time/space!
