FEATURES OF TIME

Memories are one of the best ways of travelinguntitled

They are one of the ways of breaking the linear [aspect of time

and transform it into a curving one

 

It is the moment where present meets the past…

 

Scientists will never understand

how we transfer knowledge from a box

attached to our heads

and connected to our past experiences

They’ll never figure out

how the subconscious part of ourselves

bring us so vivid images and sounds

From the past

 

Dreams are also one of the best ways of traveling

They are another way of breaking the linear aspect of time

and transform it into a curving one

 

It is the moment where present meets the future…

 

Scientists will never understand

the way we are able to construct prospects in this little box

attached to our heads

and make it really happen and become reality

They’ll never figure out

how the fortune-teller part of ourselves

is able to define our own future

In the future

 

The scientific conclusion, after all this,

is that the best of the present

is when it becomes the past for us to remember

or when we think of the future for us to create

 

If not related to past or future,

present is just the boring linear aspect

of time
