What Is Time?


‘In the beginning was the word,’ or, if you are a believer of the big-bang theory, in the beginning, was a cosmic explosion from which we all originated.

However, before either of those two occurrences, there was something else in existence.

It was Time. Without there being Time, neither event could have happened. No word could have been written, spoken or thought, and no explosion took place.

It was Time that introduced the solar system that we know, and it will be Time that will end it.

If you accept this premise then, to use a modern parlance, the rest of my discourse is a given! 

Darwin argues that we evolved from a unicellular organism, an amoeba type creature, into what we are today. I personally disagree with that, but I will not discuss my beliefs here.

Suffice it to say that whether he is correct or Christianity is right, both required the unhindered assistance of Time.

I use the word, unhindered, deliberately, as Time could not care less how we, as humans, use it. Why should it?

What we do with the gift is our choice.

Time is omnipotent, eternal until it decides to end itself.

If you are about to argue that it will be a man who ends the world, I will not disagree, but Time will still exist!

No matter what we do we cannot change it in any way, shape or form. It is yesterday, today and tomorrow. It is perpetual.

The missing energy source that if bottled, would solve every problem ever created. It is not tangible though, but I would suggest that it’s not abstract.

We spend Time watching time pass. 

There are two entities in Time. There is Time in perpetuity, and time the movement, that governs all.

Time creates, as it does destroy. It has power over our very thoughts and purpose. The forever asked question; “is there enough time?” Answered by,“I wish there was!” But there is.

Only it’s not there for us. It is there for Time to use, as it alone decides.

Man invented a clock as a way of measuring and regulating time.

But Time does not recognise that system of quantification, why would it?

It has no need to calculate, as it had no need to begin, and as far as an end product is concerned, why would it have one?

We both love and despises the movement of time. We blame it for passing slowly, or quickly depending on the circumstances, then praise it for the same reasons.

Seldom do we notice Time, the creator.

 Time is good. Time is bad.  

So, what’s my point in this? I cannot provide you with any clues as to its source, but can you see an analogy here, a comparison with belief?

In the Scriptures, believed by some, God sent his only Son to earth to die for our sins. When God’s son was here he was abused. He still is!

Could Time and God be the same? Could time be Jesus Christ? Could the Bible be an early philosophers dream?

I hope I have sown many questions into your mind. 

It’s a great thing to have time to ask such things and an equally great thing to be allowed by Time to ponder.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp is a member of The Society of Authors. His introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All ten of his novels are now published by CNext Chapter with the tenth novel being a two-part ending to the Heirs and Descendants Series. A Covenant of Spies completed the four-book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? Once I Was A Soldier and A Widow's Son. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was a number-one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, the UK, Canada, and Australia. Although it's true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the two novellas he wrote, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled--The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising his first novel. There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality. Amazon Author Page https://www.amazon.co.uk/Daniel-Kemp/... He is fond of writing Quotes and a collection of his can be found here--- https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/list/72612151
