Problems not solved

What is time? The definition that fits the meaning is the length of existence for things and life. Time has three dimensions, past, present and future. Of the three, the one that has given man the most problems is present. For any problem that existed in the past and no longer remains, has been solved.

What is a problem you ask? Those having no solvable solution and remain unanswered. The problems of the past that have not been answered now become the problems of the present and the problems of the present will now become the problems of the future. Problems travel at the speed of light and remain with man until he finds an answer that will eliminate it, making it non-existing.

The problems of the past have been based on education, governing, taxes, crimes, jobs, wages, domestic, corruption, a balanced budget, children of abuse and neglect; along with the means of supporting a war for the sole purpose of protecting our country's interest. These problems have been with us for centuries and are still with us making them the problems of the future as well. Any new laws that are passed to remedy the problems of the past, to resolve those of the present will now produce a problem for the future. The future holds no new problems but retains most of what was not resolved in the present.

This is what man calls change; for it goes from one dimension of time to another but remains the same problem. So, what does this all mean? Is it to prove that man is stupid, dumb and ignorant; maybe to prove that man's intelligence didn't come from the tree of knowledge? Time is a man-made element that determines length of existence, now the question is how much time does man have to resolving his problems of the present before they become the problems of the future?
