Saturday Mix – April 8, 2017 – A Theory of Time


Image: Digital landscapes by Yuri Shwedoff

My Uncle Horace had a theory about time.

He’d say that within each second of time there stretched an infinite amount of time. He thought time was a relative structure and was far more complex than we really understood.

My Aunt Rona thought he had a screw loose but one day he shocked us all disappearing for what was a brief time in our reckoning but when he returned he said he’d been into a second and travelled for eight hours before coming out again.

He described what he saw, my Aunt had him committed. We loved him anyway.

    Poor Horace. But, think of the fun he can have. He may have been committed, but if he can “skip time,” he can go away for a whole day and only be missing for a minute or two. Rock on Horace! 😀

    I think I had an Uncle Horace on my father’s side. Fun response to the prompt, and now I get the “I’ll be back in a second” theory of relative time.

    Oh my and what if poor Uncle Horace wasn’t mad at all .. still, I love the idea of relative existence and enjoy the thought that one man’s madness is another’s sanity.
