Block Universe Theory: Why Einstein Thought We’re Already Dead

As time goes on and things in life appear to get progressively weirder, the theory that we’re all living in a simulation seems more and more realistic.

Now, another TikTok video is taking it a little further, claiming that maybe it’s not all a simulation. Instead, we’re already dead, according to Albert Einstein himself.

Are we already dead?

As conspiratorial as that question sounds, Einstein’s theory of special relativity explains his belief that we can be both alive and dead at the same time. The theory presents time as being relative to the observer with all time and space existing at the same time.

According to the video, Einstein believed that, despite us perceiving time as linear, time actually happens at once.

“The distinction between past, present, and future is only an illusion, however persistent,” he wrote in a letter to his best friend’s family after her death.

This theory of time is now known as the block universe theory.

As the theory goes, the four-dimensional block universe contains everything that ever has and ever will happen at once.
