Time Keeps On Slippin’ … Into The Future

Danny over at Dream Big, Dream Often is always good for a question or two. This time his question lingers in my brain.  Go on, click the link.  Take a look at his question.  I’ll wait.

Done? Okay let’s continue.

I am very interested in what others think on this topic.  Time.

Is time really an illusion?  


A construct of man.

Mayhap it is (Said in my Mother Abigail Freemantle voice).

Flashes of the finale of St. Elsewhere’s when an autistic child is shaking his snow globe and the audience learns St. Eligius hospital and its’ inhabitants were all a dream.

Things that make you go hmmm. Things that launch Denzel Washington’s career.

Of course the iconic, time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin’ into the future.  Not my favorite Steve Miller band tune but the song fits this theme and will have to do.

I have many of the arts in here – music (the aforementioned Steve Miller Band), literature (the Stand not to be confused with It, the book I read on bed rest many years ago. Hope the It movie we will see this weekend is as good or better than the book, and lastly  TV (beloved St. Elsewhere precursor to all the medical dramas that followed).  Yes TV is an art. Maybe not the cool kid of art but an example all the same.

This post was sponsored by my mind (that can’t quit thinking) and the sentiment of I might as well write when I can’t sleep and/or the mood strikes.

As always. more to come.

  1. If you were a physicist you might say time was just the steady transition of the universe into a state of greater entropy. Unlike the first three dimensions, time is unique in that the arrow of time only goes in one direction, that of greater disorder. You can’t go back. Locally you can change or even reverse the entropy slide but only at the expense of somewhere else.

    1. And now I cannot wait for Big Bang Theory to start up again ;). I am not smart enough to understand entropy on the level though I do think it is interesting.
