Newton seemed to think so.
So did Aristotle and countless others before. Even the Buddhists,
with their cyclic time, kept believing that time was something which
went from one instant to the other, moving forward though in circles.
That, of course, changed
after Einstein. However, I think a vast number of people still have
problems coming to grips with the nature of time and how they fit in
it. Which is no wonder: humans evolved to live within time, trapped
in their 3D slice of reality, ripe with memories and longings. This
paragraph hasn't been here forever. I just wrote it. Or did I?
