Transcript

  • 1. You and timeYou and time Ronald Wiltse September 2008
  • 2. The stream of time moves.
  • 3. Your birth marks the point at which you were dropped into the stream of time.
  • 4. Your piece of the stream of time overlaps with those born before and, increasingly, after you. those born before after you.
  • 5. You are thus tied to the past and the future–
  • 6. Your oldest teachers and grandparents connect you to past events, perhaps as far away as World War II, while their parents may join you to World War I.
  • 7. When you become older, let us say seventy five years old (around 2070), imagine having a personal connection to World War II! (That’s like having today a connection to someone who was around when President James Garfield was assassinated! )
  • 8. Your grandchildren, born perhaps around 2050, will thus have an indirect connection to someone alive in World War II when they are 75–around the year 2125! That will be an event nearly 200 years in the past.(That’s like your grandparents remembering the Battle of the Alamo! )
  • 9. You are part of the past; you are part of the future.
  • 10. Become aware of the stream of time.
  • 11. Think about your place in time. Feel it.
