If asked to supply his own metaphor, the author would describe our universe as something of a roiling pond. Yes, there is movement and change, with "things" aggregating into existence and dissolving out. Yet to speak of previous and subsequent states of matter and energy as belonging to "the past" or "the future" is to create a fictitious depth to our universe.
Bunnies measuring speed, herrings charting distance, crabs arguing over "the infinite"-this book is one part Saturday morning cartoon, one part invitation to contemplating the nature of time.
Intelligent, entertaining and thought-provoking, A Turtle on the Pond of Time aims to draw minds into questioning the existence of time.
