Hey! Sorry for being a bit of a hermit recently; I’ve been vacationing and first-day-of-school-ing and contrary to my original beliefs, it really doesn’t leave a whole lot of time for other things. And by that I mean reading and writing and by extension, blogging.
Is time linear?
Maybe- just because we can’t see the fourth dimension doesn’t mean it’s not there. At the same time, it’s in our nature to need to see proof to convert our thinking from what “might be” to what is.
How might we be able to become “unstuck in time” in our own way?
“Billy is spastic in time, has no control over where he is going next, and the trips aren’t necessarily fun. He is in a constant state of stage fright, he says, because he never knows what part of his life he is going to have to act in next” (23)
How much does time dictate our lives in comparison to the characters in the novel?
We know that it’s more likely at this point that time is more in control over us than we are of it.
Time, a theory brought to you by the Tralfamadorians.
“The most important thing I learned on Tralfamadore was that when a person dies he only appears to die. He is still very much alive in the past, so it is silly for people to cry at his funeral. All moments, past, present, and future, always have existed, always will exist” (26-27)
