Time, essentially, is a collective movement through the cosmos, as in the existence, where the present is a carrier wave of everything that came before. Events align themselves in accordance with the previous patterns. This is why certain events reoccur in time. Your birthday is a genetic echo which is aligned with the overriding carrier wave of the planets movement through space. The event takes place at your conception, then the event echoes in alignment with the conventional understanding of the movement through cosmos, which humans label 'calendar'.
There are events which are extremely old that are still echoing to this day, this is the reason why we celebrate collective holidays; they are information based on an earlier event embedded in our genetic code which animates themselves in expression. This is how cultures forms. They are a set of events that are transformed into information which then are embedded in the collective genetic code, and thus remembered through time.
Humans, as in the creative animators of the present, are the carrier wave of the moment, because they carry all the genetic information of what came before. As humans are replaced through time, certain events slowly wither out of the animation, which is the exact same thing happening to your body. At your birth, your genetic makeup is clear, and the replication of events in the cellular movement is very rigid. Over time the echoing effect of the event withers, which makes the renewal of cells to slow down, and the event slowly fades out of animation.
In the same sense that the memories of ancient times are fading from the collective animation because of renewal, as to say, formulation of new generations which comes through new events which then are carried by means of echoes through time. Cyclic regeneration works the same way on the planetary scale as it does on the bodily scale. As we renew our memories of certain events every year when we celebrate those holidays, we immortalize that piece of information through regeneration. We basically re-amplify the echo so that it is kept fresh in our genetic memory and thus keeps on animating itself through time.
The only reason why the ancient structures wither is because we are forgetting. The more we forget, the more they wither. Because our genetic recollection forms the very thing we perceive. What is 'out there' is nothing but a result which is animated by our brain in the present. The weaker the echo in our genetic code, the lesser the chance that we are able to even perceive it in our presence.
To relocate physically is essentially nothing but to relocate your consciousness in your own genetic code. You shift focus to other pieces of information you carry in your DNA, that is what really happens when you travel, however your brain translates that concept into your reality through symbolic manifestation. Why else would a car engine cycle, why else would a plane propeller cycle.
In a sense we are music, and will remain such for as long as our imprints are allowed to echo in the collective memory after our deaths;
'Our spirits lives on through the lyrics you hear in our songs'
