Time and Space do not have an existence independent of your mind

May 31, 2016 | Acharya Prashant

Time and Space are nothing but the mind. They do not have an existence independent of your mind.

So, whenever a question arises concerning something which is reducible to time and space, then just know that it is nothing but a process of the mind.

What all is time and space:

– ‘Why’- Because why implies cause and effect. Effect means that which comes after cause. So, time comes in. Hence, no question concerning ‘why’ is a REAL question. Do you understand? The moment you ask ‘why’, you have assumed time to be real. And time is just your mind.
