What’s Time?

In biblical Greek, day one dawns with an Almighty Word. In what strange language does time start with a Big Bang?

“Science always uses metaphor.” —James Lovelock

In what tortured tongue does it fly, march on, or run out?

“We say that time passes, time goes by, and time flows. Those are metaphors. We also think of time as a medium in which we exist.”James Gleick

In what cuckoo code does it tick us off?

“We are programmed to believe that time is the enemy, that it takes away from us or that it diminishes us. I have found that it’s done the opposite to me. Life is in perfect balance. It’s just that our perception of it isn’t.” —Rania Al-Abdullah

Does the strange language it blows in on, get in our eyes?

“The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.” —Niccolo Machiavelli

Could the tortured tongue that makes it grind as slowly as the mills of the gods, heal all wounds?

“Love is like an hourglass, with the heart filling up as the brain empties.” —Jules Renard

Is the cuckoo code that ticks us off, malware in the mind?

“The cuckoo who is onto himself is half way out of the clock.” —Wilson Mizner

This site’s archived themes and the post that reads like a book mix timeless metaphors with imaginative images and insightful wit, to save the day from metaphors that create life’s falsely alarming illusions.

“A happy man does not hear the clock strike.” —German Proverb

  What’s Money?   Why Hurry?   Why Worry?   What’s Real?   What’s True Self?
