“Within the information field there is no time: From the first few nanoseconds of the Big Bang, the universe had encoded all potential future states of its enclosed system. Like a huge computer hard drive, the universe stores everything as a form of information that can be turned into physical reality as each wave function collapses.
In effect, this means that information on everything that has happened and everything that can happen is encoded within this huge database.
If this is the case then not only every actual future but also every potential future has an existence within this information field. Indeed, within this information field there is no time, just a permanent ‘now’ in which everything exists as an informational potentiality.”
~Anthony Peake in The Labyrinth of Time
