A New World Is Born

There is no logical impossibility in the hypothesis that the world sprang into being five minutes ago, exactly as it then was, with a population that remembered a wholly unreal past.

There is no logically necessary connection between events at different times; therefore nothing that is happening now or will happen in the future can disprove the hypothesis that the world began five minutes ago.

Or, Logic is the wrong tool to find out when the world began.

That's a pretty mind-blowing idea; but if you go down that route, you cannot be sure anything is real at all...

In toto that's what he means.. where Real is just memory.. and history is basically to re-infuse the past into the future mind so as to continue the dream of the past in a contiguous manner.. much against the wishes of nature's intention.

Nothing is real, even if true, is pretty impractical to live by. For one, at our levels, pain sure is real.
Also we don't know where exactly Nature published its intentions and if there is one book to go by.

Aren't we a publication of nature? or the entire world and Life for that matter.. or no matter

Thats a lot of intentions (at times, conflicting) on the same thing, then.

conflicting is we. Nature is just least bothered, for its program is perpetual. We consider ourselves as Living being, but to nature, we are just time beings.. trying to take control of it by journalising it through books that we never allow to die.

Isn't such consideration, control, journal, disallow part of the intentions ? Which other Nature B's intentions is there ? There is just one Nature and no other place where intentions arise or is there Nature A which intended well and Nature B who prompted us into conflict ? . If they do, where from do they arise then ?

Nature, in its nature, evolves as it revolves. Everything is intended well for that moment only, but is in conflict with the future. Like what is built is only a scaffolding for the future. And nature too has to obey nature. So human memory is the only way it carries things to future. So it creates a certain program to achieve certain things and also creates another program to destroy the program to just gain knowledge.. but like all pre-programmed and running in layers, in between extremes and amidst alternatives. Like how in IT we have a master routine and sub-routine and sub-sub and so on.. and any sub-routine going in a loop beyond time limits get killed. So even the intention to intend was intended.
