about tempiternity or the eternal now

In my view of life, it is all relations. There is no temporal priority of rationality. Because there is always a danger of “intellectual colonization”, in which we too readily apply our personal and cultural pre-conceptions onto someone else. Thereby making the other an intellectual extension of ourselves. This just reveals how far we are from the sense of our “place-without-time”. Or our inner apprehension of reality as a participative knowledge of consciousness. We live in a form of cultural amnesia, far away from the awareness of this place as a living condition of something both within, and outside of ourselves. Something that is alive inside both people and places.
It is not time that link us to the present. We do not derive our origin or identity from time.
Our life is an annexation of this experience of nonlocality. Or place-without-time.
