For coma victims time is important, doctors told me as much. For us it takes time for our brains to build new pathways. I’m beginning to accept that there is no magical cure for coma. For people at large I think time offers both change and experience, two extremely important commodities. To reflect on a social media comment to a post a while ago, perhaps the most important feature of time is now. It is true that I might consider events of the past but I can only consider them in the now.
Perhaps through this limitation our judgement might be flawed. Indeed we don’t always have access to the truth. Perception is only given to us through the now and our personal inclinations. When considering an event past what is fact? For me the only fact is that I can’t walk properly. I think I can remember a time when I could. As the song goes, ‘time has got nothing to do with it’. Pete Murphy clearly had something different in mind, I would instead write ‘time has everything to do with it’. As the comment from our old band manager David suggested time is a series of now’s, but it was a great ‘then’ Dave. And science suggest we will soon be able to travel time.
