Neither Experience Time

In the grand theater of existence, Future and Past coexist but never experience Time individually. It is only through their intricate interaction—a metaphysical dance—that Time itself is born, allowing for the entire spectrum of human experience.

Future is an entity of endless potential, a wellspring of what might be. His realm is one of simultaneous occurrences, an expansive tapestry of eventualities, too overwhelming to be constrained by the linear passage of Time.

Conversely, Past is the ultimate archivist, her existence cemented in an immutable chronicle of what has already occurred. Her stillness is so complete, so free of movement or change, that she too exists beyond the reaches of Time.

When these contrasting yet complementary forces unite, their dance generates the phenomenon we perceive as Time. Future weaves the infinite possibilities into the threads of reality, while Past collects these threads, etching them into the indelible history of the universe. Their dynamic exchange unfolds in a complex ballet, giving life to moments, years, and epochs.

In the wake of this celestial performance, human beings find their stage. We exist within this temporal framework, our lives a collection of instances informed by Future’s promise and Past’s record. Their eternal dance allows us to love, learn, age, and dream, providing the narrative arc that shapes our individual and collective journeys.
