From his unique perspective, author Norimichi Shuto re-examines the mixed fields of knowledge expounded by Zeno, Descartes, Husseri, Galileo, Newton, Yojichiro and Einstein, and gives evidence that the perception of time is nothing but an illusion. He closes in on the essence of time without the use of formulas and by taking clues from time itself, as it passes right before our very eyes. In the process, by referring to the hypothesis that light is the source of our consciousness, our universe, and of all matter, the clues to understanding the Arrow of Time will ultimately be revealed.
