" Time and space are not conditions in which we live, but modes by which we think." - Albert Einstein

Does this mean that we really don't physically live in time and space, but we perceive it the smaller the thing is the faster is perceives time e.g. some flies have life span of one day, the bigger the thing is the slower time is for it e.g. sun has life span of billion years. Space is infinite, even if we reach the end of the universe we will discover its 10 times more bigger because it's something we sense. Just like a person in a dream senses it as a reality the mind senses whatever the eyes tell it as reality.

Is this the illusion (Brahm) gurbani talks about ?

"The Vedas and the Scriptures are only make-believe, O Siblings of Destiny; they do not relieve the anxiety of the heart. If you will only center yourself on the Lord, even for just a breath, then you shall see the Lord face-to-face, present before you. || 1 || O human being, search your own heart every day, and do not wander around in confusion. This world is just a magic-show; no one will be holding your hand. || 1 || Pause || Reading and studying falsehood, people are happy; in their ignorance, they speak nonsense. The True Creator Lord is diffused into His creation..." Kabir Ji (ANG 727)

"The world is just a magic show..." All we see is illusion. This is the beauty of Maya. The dance is endless. The games are many. It is the play (lila) of the One.
