Important note: "The data on the universe in this article has no specific scientific basis, but it basically conforms to the logical and philosophical categories."

Aside from the artificial time concept of year, month, day, hour, minute, and second, time actually exists objectively. A universal consensus says that time was born at 13.8 billion light years. This is also the time when the universe was born as estimated by scientists. But the universe is still expanding, so some people say that the initial time is 45 billion light-years, and some people boldly speculate that it is 90 billion light-years.

According to the minimum concept of time, 247 zeptoseconds is the shortest time for a light atom to pass through a hydrogen atom. This 247 zeptoseconds is already a multiple of 280 million million years that we can perceive one second. And if we use the smallest particle that we know to penetrate other particles, it may be even more amazing that the data will completely subvert our existing human perception of time.

Therefore, four years ago, I interviewed two of the world's most senior professors who have studied computers for more than 25 years and put forward a bold hypothesis: "Why can't we use the self-learning function of artificial intelligence to study the complex mysteries of the universe?" "The answers of Dr. Georgia and Dr. Void are all seen: "Human data on the complexity of the universe cannot provide enough data for current artificial intelligence." In fact, the core of my question lies in the "self-learning function" of artificial intelligence. Or, I have a bold idea, why don't we currently use the world's most powerful computing power in China's "Shenwei Taihu Light"? Can the computer's powerful computing power of 1.25 billion billion times per second combined with artificial intelligence be able to measure the time of the universe?

And my answer is no, or even pessimistic? The most powerful computer can count the rise and fall of a country, the end of the earth, and the ultimate of the solar system, but not the time of the universe. Consider this logic. The earth is only 4.5 billion years old, while life was only 700 million years old in the Cambrian. Compared with cosmic civilization, our human civilization is actually an extremely short-lived and low-end civilization.

Although I have stated in the poem "New Concept" that we humans may think in a different way of thinking, the current civilization may have a divergence from our own cognition. Of course, I also put forward the "time asynchrony" in the poem "Light of Destiny". It may be possible to recognize the "asynchrony of time" as a unique way for us to recognize the universe and the time of the universe.

What is the time? Where is the beginning of time?

If the existing cognitive abilities of human beings cannot give the answer, why not recognize ourselves in another way? Just as we can't reach the remote and vast universe, why don't we reach the inside of the smallest particles?

My title is "Message from Time", so why don't I have any emotional words at all? For example, what "time to boil the rain"? List a bunch of useless adjectives like the following: "Time flies, white horses go through a gap, fast speed, short-lived, fleeting, short-lived, time is like a shuttle, fleeting, time is like an arrow, a thousand miles in a day, three autumns in a day, sun and moon like a shuttle, one day and one night, one hour and three quarters, in a blink of an eye, the years are flowing, the pitching, the golden moment, the light is fleeting, the day and night, the hour and a half, the blinking, the race against time, the time is like an arrow, passing quickly."

"Dangerous, undecided respite" may be the best footnote to describe current time.

"Doubt that our own cognition is the greatest awe of time."

This is my best message to time this year.
