What’s Time?

In biblical Greek, the cosmic clock starts with a word (logos). In what language does it start with a Big Bang?

“Science always uses metaphor.” —James Lovelock

In what tongue does time become tedious?

“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 code does it make us artificially intelligent?

“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 idiom it blows in on, clear our vision?

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

Could the tongue that gives it wings, heal all wounds?

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

Is the code that segments our life into bits an bytes, birds in the attic?

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

Figuratively and literally, the Q&As turn the light of imagination and of reason on these and other literally vital and always timely thoughts.

“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?
