From the very beginning time was a concept that all humans were familiar with & this concept of time has dictated human evolution until today. Fleeting moments, changing tides, evolving species all come from the same stuff, creation.
From atom to galaxy the universe is in a perpetual state of flux and we as humans don't like change, we fight it, it scares us. So, we create the illusion of stasis. We want to believe in the world at rest, the world of right now. Yet our great paradox remains the same.
The moment we grasp the now, that now is gone. We cling to snapshots, but life is moving pictures, each nano second different than the last. In everything we do, in all that we are, we remain living monuments to the past as we continue to make history everyday.
