What Is Linear Time vs. Nonlinear Time?

We are told that time is an “illusion.” But what does that mean? What is linear time vs. nonlinear time? Wendy Kennedy explained:

“Time is a very important component of 3D reality, but it is an illusion that does not exist in any other dimension. Time is a series of “now moments” that you string together to call “time.”” Wendy Kennedy

She added: “What you perceive to be your future is based upon an agreed upon set of circumstances that are occurring in your now moment, that you will assign a value in the next now moment as your past.

Kennedy explained that the real purpose of “time” is to give us a time lag or buffer zone or space between what we intend, think about and pulse out, and what gets reflected back, manifested or experienced by us in the physical world.

And as you may have noticed, the time lag is getting shorter or compressed, as we increase in frequency. She said if you think the days seem shorter, you’re right.

What is linear vs. nonlinear time?

Tom Minderle explained that linear time means moving from the past into the future in a straight line, like dominoes knocking over dominoes. There is a sequence that moves in one direction. Humans think we can’t change the past or visit it, because we live according to linear time.

He said nonlinear time works like this: “Imagine if you could slow down time. Or time travel to the past. Or position yourself above the line and view the past, present, and future simultaneously.” He explained:

  • It isn’t just one line, but a whole web of lines, all interconnected and branching with different pasts leading to different presents and different futures.
  • You can choose which alternate present to enter into. The future and past are not different than the left and right end of a table, which exist simultaneously. But whichever end you look at is the end you see.

“True time moves forward not with the tick of a clock but with the making of a choice. Until a choice is taken, the future is not determined.” Tom Montalk


How do we explain the “illusion” of time?

What we perceive as “time” is really a series of now moments or event points that are stringed together. They are like the still frames of a film strip (below) that create the illusion of motion or time going forwards (future) or backwards (past).

All those still frames exist simultaneously, just like your so-called past lives, current and future lives do in what is called event space.


As Kennedy explained, our current reality is based on which frame (or now moment) you choose to focus your intention on. That’s why time only exists as a marker or coding for an event, so that it may be archived into libraries or Akashic records.

You choose which now moment you put yourself on. Each now moment or event point has a particular set of circumstances for the collective, which you are using as a reflection for yourself to experience, learn and evolve from.
