Is time really linear? Because...this month seemed to be a singular point. As in "gone in the blink of an eye." I guess it could be argued that a single point is essentially the shortest line possible, but anyone making that argument would be seen as annoying (and rightly so).

I think time doesn't exist and linearity is our way of working out what order things happened in...

But then my May kind of happened all at once too, so maybe it's aliens interfering or something :)

Oh, and also, time isn't linear, it's wibbly wobbly.

Uh-uh. Yep. I like the idea of our feeble brains grasping onto a linear concept for the purposes of sequencing events and trying to make order out of chaos.

I also think that time does slow down and speed up, and that could be due to alien interference. (Oh, how I long for alien interference. *drools on your icon*)

I would give more thought to this, but every time I contemplate time and space continuums, alien interferences, or other highly convoluted subjects (don't get me started on string theory, say), I feel the beginnings of what must surely be an impending aneurysm and my brain freezes up. There may be no limits to time or space, but the capacity of my intellect is very finite. And, sometimes it just plain hurts to think about it.

My May was jam-packed full of events and I, for one, am glad it's over.

That could also be because June brings with it men-less-ness and fan girl meet ups!

I can deal with the months flying by freakishly, but have you ever had one of those nights where you fall asleep and then it feels like you wake up almost immediately after? And then you look at the clock or out the window and it's actually morning? And you have to get up, but you feel like you've just gone to bed? I hate that. *nods*

I think time is actually linear, i.e. it exists in a linear continuum. But our way of dividing time is not necessarily sensible or intuitive. A month isn't a particularly useful distinction, so we shouldn't be married to it as a division of time. I have similar thoughts about days, hours, minutes and seconds, fwiw.

In other words, time? Who needs it? ;)

I just can't believe it's June. JUNE.

It will soon be Christmas...
