Although the physicists use their mathematical formalism and their diagrams to picture interactions ‘en bloc’ in four-dimensional space-time, they say that in the actual world each observer can only experience the phenomena in a succession of space-time sections, that is, in a temporal sequence. The mystics, on the other hand, maintain that they can actually experience the full span of space-time where time does not flow any longer. Thus the Zen master Dogen:

It is believed by most that time passes; in actual fact, it stays where it is. This idea of passing may be called time, but it is an incorrect idea, for since one sees it only as passing, one cannot understand that it stays just where it is.14
