The question of time comes to mind in a poem I wrote (above) for the theme, “stay curious”. The linear passage, yet circling, of time piqued my curiosity as I grew older and I have wondered if this construct exists at all as we see it. In my quest, I stumbled upon writings by Daria Bocicova that I will read several times to grasp. Not a scientist, her observations are no less well formulated. Quoting from her article briefly: "When people think that celestial changes or seasonal changes associated with the Earth's position around the Sun are time, it's like thinking that a fish swimming in an aquarium is water. In fact, a tank is like space, and water is like time. Water fills the tank, and it's everywhere. If it wasn't, the fish wouldn't be able to move and would be dead, despite all the space in the aquarium." Bocicova goes on to say, "Time itself is neither linear nor circular. It does not flow or move but allows others to do so. So the cycles we observe have nothing to do with time, except that time will enable them to exist."
