This adversary does deal in simple falsehoods, but those aren’t his most lethal weapons. He is an imitator of his enemy, God, and therefore, his deceptions are high, wide, deep, broad, complex—and, long-term.
These types of deceptions are four-dimensional at the very least; they are his weapons of mass destruction.
|This is as good a representation as any of how I visualize time.|
Following the math example, think of the most complex mathematical statement that is true, then think of the inverse, a process that’s also complex but false. But how would most people know that the process is false? Its sheer complexity is its shield against the revelation of its false nature.
The dimension of time is very important and adds to complexity. The segmented, one-dimensional way of thinking that I mentioned in this post makes it easy to miss the multidimensional edifices of falsehood all around us.
And if you can’t connect “before” with “now,” and with “later,” nor see how dependent these time concepts are on each other, then everything is “now.” By the way, the connection of those three time elements is the spine of what used to be called scientific method.
More in a bit.
