Abstract

In the evolving landscape of theoretical physics and consciousness studies, the concept of time has transcended its traditional, linear confines, revealing a more intricate interplay with the human consciousness and the quantum realm. This monograph embarks on an interdisciplinary journey to explore the hypothesis that "Time" is not merely a passive dimension but a conscious entity, intricately intertwined with the volume of the universe and the essence of consciousness. Drawing upon principles from quantum mechanics, neurobiology, and philosophical inquiry, this paper proposes a notion of Time as a dynamic, high-frequency waveform influenced by gravity and observable through its interactions with consciousness. The paper further investigates the role of biological processes, specifically within brain neurons' microtubules, in mirroring Time's complex nature. The concept of Temporal Entanglement is introduced, suggesting a perception of Time akin to depth perception in hearing and vision, facilitated by the brain's dual processing of Time's temporal elements and resulting in that inner-life feeling we all know, a sort of 'Dual Chronoesthesia'. This exploration is not only a quest to understand Time's true nature but also an endeavor to unravel the profound implications such an understanding holds for our perception of reality, consciousness, and our existential story within the cosmos.
