it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction-i-loved, philosophy
Read in January, 2012

This was a delightful, short read that opens up your mind to a multitude of ways to view time. What I enjoyed most from this fictional philosophical string of scenarios was the idea that time is the way it is for a reason. Yes, we live in the present- yes, the past is important as well as the future, but we cannot change the properties that make time the way it is. It is time for a reason. It is the universal leveling agent. It is powerful beyond our imagination. Nothing is as magical, or you can evenly say: scientific, as time.
