Viruses!? Being alive is not the same thing as being not dead. But it's good to participate in the discussion, I suppose.

I remember hearing a theory that everything is happening all at once, all the time. Our brains were why we perceived it time as linear, because that's how we HAVE to view things.
I think it comes into play with the dead/not dead scenario. There's a type of radioactive decay that happens so fast ...well, it's one way, then it's the other. I used to keep looking for what it was - it was Kreutxsomething radiation, possibly - but I think it's what they now call "positron emission decay. The main thing, though, is the the change happens with no time involved. As in "first there is a mountain, then there is no mountain, then there is".

Which makes me wonder how much perception has to do with ANYthing. But I have to think linearly, because stuff is otherwise too weird. Too zen.
