The conditioned mind, surely, is incapable of finding out what lies beyond time. That is sirs, the mind as we know it is conditioned by the past.

The past, moving through the present to the future, conditions the mind; and this conditioned mind, being in conflict in trouble, being fearful, uncertain, seeks something beyond the frontiers of time.
