‘The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.’ – Albert Einstein”
Love the Fibonacci Spiral Clock image and basically just wanted to share it here. Maybe viewing time in this manner helps to shift our perspectives on LIFE in general.
There really is nothing straight-line about time or about our individual timelines. Even we, who thanks to gravity are standing on this water-covered planet which is traveling through space annually circling a giant ball of fire which is in turn circling a central axis within our Milky Way galaxy every 225 million years, are spiraling through our lives, going round and round in ever-expanding circular paths, but always returning in proximity to where we first originated—back to where we once started—a little older, and hopefully a little wiser through the processing of TIME.
What was that famous T. S. Elliot quote?
“We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time….” –T.S. Eliot
That was the part best-remembered and most frequently mentioned of a rather long Eliot poem, but the last of it is this:
“…Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always–
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.”
(Excerpt from Little Gidding which is the last of T. S. Eliot’s Four Quartets.)
Or LIFE, as we know it in Fibonacci Time.
