Time-The Continuum of experience in which events pass from the future through to the present to the past
"Poets talk about "spots of time" but it is really fisherman who experience eternity compressed into a moment. No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone. I shall remember that son of a bitch forever. " Norman Maclean A River Runs Through It
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. Norman Maclean A river Runs Through It
