"If time is a circle, bending back on itself, the world repeats it self precisely, endlessly".
In other words, events in time repeat themselves, precisely, endlessly.
A child is born, they live and they die.
The motion of the planetary bodies around the sun.
A man travels back to his country every December 10th from abroad. He buys a Carina E II every 21st and turns it in to a taxi 1 month later. This continues precisely for 3 years consecutively.
Christmas comes 25th of December every year. A boy's father buys him a toy car every 23rd and the boy eats chicken every 25th, until he grows out of boyhood and becomes a man.
A boy's father buys him a toy car every 23rd and the boy eats chicken
every 25th, until he grows out of boyhood and becomes a man.
This cycle continues for generations upon generations past, present and to come.
"Would you marry me?" a man speaks out these words to his girl friend. He may speak it out once in his life time or several other times depending on how many wives he marries or how many time he chooses to re-marry.
Another man in a romantic restaurant some where near-by speaks out the very words: "Would you marry me ?", to his newly found love of his life.
Another man somewhere in a town near-by in his garage, repeats the very words: "Would you marry me?", to his second wife.
Another man a century ago somewhere beside his favorite river speaks out these words: "Would you marry me?", to a woman old enough to be his mother.
These few words have repeated themselves and would repeat them-self endlessly, precisely.
Our world is a cycle, bending back on itself, such that the world repeats itself, precisely to a certain degree, finitely, limited by our life span or the life span of generations lived or generations to come.
In this our world, I think time may be a circle, but not just a precise circle forever, it's a circle having a tangent where the point of origin of the tangent is the end.
Disclaimer: Apart from the quotes from the book which I use in attempt to draw similarities from our world and day to day activities. Every other thought is mine and can be wrong, it's subject to discussion and investigation, needs mathematical proof.
Lessons from chapter 1 about time:
Time is precise.
Time is endless.
