hey tyrez, what’s up man?
That’s my favorite book quote ever
Even if people think I’m insensitive when I say it.

Eunice, can you explain the difference between time, and the nature of time?

if it wasn't for time, everything would happen at once.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.
So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.
Home
Home again
I like to be here
When I can
When I come home
Cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones
Beside the fire
Far away
Across the field
Tolling on the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

i am time. we are time. which is to say the very structure of our existence is temporal. a manifold of past, present and future as a unity. not linear, but always moving toward death, which renders time finite. so it goes. computer

Time is relative to your speed. And speed equals distance over time.

A clock on a mountain will be slower than a clock at sea level bc the distance it travels is greater in the same amount of time (one day).

Go the speed of light and you won't age relative to someone who doesn't go w you.

To go back in time, just look at something far away. The farther away the object, the farther back in time you're seeing it bc of the time it takes the light to reach you.

Now the dual nature of light is something else.
