A Take on Time

I was watching "Kate and Leopold" some days ago when one of the character, Stuart, who in the movie found a crack into time, has this to say about time:

It is no more crazy than, uh, a dog finding a rainbow. Dogs are color-blind. They don't see color. Just like we can't see time. Oh... we can feel it passing but, uh, we can't see it; it's just a blur. It's like we're riding in a, in a supersonic train and the world is just blowing by. But imagine if we could stop that train. Imagine if we could stop that train get out, look around and see time for what it really is, a universe, a world a thing as unimaginable as color to a dog. And as real and tangible as that chair you're sitting in.Now, if we could see it like that I mean, really look at it then... maybe we could see the flaws as well as the form.

I was quite intrigued by it. Could it be a glimpse into what time will be like in heaven?



  1. heheh! what a typical INTP rumination eh? Our type seems to read hidden meaning in eveything! It's a gift...and a curse...

    I guess what you say is true. As the Bible says:

    "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known." 1 Corinthians 13:12
