Yes! You've got it. That's exactly what I'm saying. We are consciousness, traveling down a probability path. Visiting nodes along the way. Each node is a static now. A fixed and unchanging
(no such thing as motion) configuration of matter. An act never becomes a node. All acts are nodes. As your consciousness visits these nodes you experience them in a linear fashion (perceived as motion and time), because that's the only way you are capable of processing the experience. You create time and motion by processing the nodes your consciousness is visiting.
As for whether matter exists at all... That's another matter. I guess you could argue that theses experiences that we have (as we travel down our probability paths) are in fact simulated events, perceived by our consciousness to be 'Real'. Reminiscent of another 'Matrix'. I really love that movie.
Time does not exist, and neither does motion. Seriously, it doesn't exist...
Sacrilege; You'll be burned at the stake for saying such thing! Recant now before it's too late.
