Science Imitating Life

Updated on January 14, 2022

DVR Remote which lets you rewind and pause live tv and then record, replay and forward later

Slow Motion, Flash Back, Rewind and Fast Forward

It’s normal for people to say that art imitates life, or life imitates art, or art imitates science or even science imitates art.

But what do you think about science imitating life?

I know, you are probably saying that’s too much imitating for me and that you lost me after life imitates art.

But think about it, if there is a God (as in the Creator of all things) don’t you think that there should be a way for science to imitate life? Science, as in science and technology that people have achieved and acquired through their own quest for knowledge and discipline and Life, as in everything else that is alive than humankind did nothing to bring about.

I know what you’re thinking, it feels like this is the time to stop reading this.

Well before you do, let’s make a deal, don’t stop until I tell you about slow motion, flashback, rewind and fast forward.


So here it is, have you ever experienced surviving an extreme car crash, an accidental fall from a very high place, a charging bull perhaps, an armed person running amok and charging towards you or any other similar really potential life-threatening incident? Okay, as in I hope not.

And if you are sitting there, still reading this, then chances are you haven’t. (I don’t think anybody who had a near-death experience or have been given that rare second-chance in life would be wasting their time reading this). And if that is so and you are still continuing to read this, then you might not be aware of what I am trying to point out. (All the more reason to read, right?)

For we know that for people who have gone through such unpleasant, unanticipated, unplanned and unwanted events we only could ask those who have survived them, and normally there aren’t very many of them to ask or even care to answer.

Time Slowing Down

And from the few who talked about it or if you yourself have been in one (I hope you’re alright though), then you’d know that in such occurrences, at the few moments before all hell breaks loose, time feels like it was considerably slooowing down and even standing stilll and that one’s senses are heightened to the point that they all soak in all and every minute detail in that few seconds even split-second before the big deadly impact.

Yes just like watching in slow motion a scene from a movie in your DVR. (The only thing different is that you are the main character in the movie and you haven’t watched the movie yet, you still don’t know what the ending is and it’s interactive, meaning you could still have a hand in what the outcome could be).

Science imitates life?

And then there is that matter wherein people who have actually crossed over to the other side of life but came back to life as we know it after being revived or resuscitated. (Some were even a little bit upset that they were brought back but that’s another story).

So what is their common story? Yes, they have a flashback of their entire life. It’s either it rewinds from the present backwards to their early memories or it fast forwards from their toddler years to the present. Yes, exactly like doing the same time as you try to watch a movie again in your video devices.

Slow-motion, Flashback, Rewind and Fast forward.

Am I making this up? I don’t think so. All these are documented, and all these modern-day video equipment which can do these sort of things are all technological advancements made by great minds in our generation or the generation before us. If not, then you might have been born in the 1800s. Like, both my granddads were, but they have both passed on. And if that is you, you might really need to think about things such as these and I thank you for reading all the way through, don’t worry we’re almost done.

So going back to our point, don’t you think that if there is a God, don’t you think that He might have just provided a way for science (the things that we make) to imitate life (the things that He has made)? I don’t know why, maybe for us to even think about that possibility or even for us to think of the possibility that there might be a God?

And for all we know, God might be smiling right now as you are pondering this one out.

What do you think?
