no actual existence.

03_00ATime, indeed! There’s no such thing as Time really; it has no actual existence. Time is nothing more than an infinitesimal point in infinity. At the most, Time is a sort of tunnel through which we are accustomed to believe that we are traveling. There’s a roar in our ears and a darkness in our eyes which makes it seem real to us. But before we came into the tunnel we existed for ever in an infinite sunlight, and after we have got through it we shall exist in an infinite sunlight again. So why should we bother ourselves about the confusion and noise and darkness which only encompass us for a moment?
