We all live our life in the knowledge that time is a line that we follow through to where it vanishes on the horizon. “Fie,” you say, “time is an illusion. Didn’t you know that?” To which I say, prove it. Show me. And you can’t, can you? No, because it’s simply spiritual mumbo jumbo. It’s your wishful thinking, an intellectual escape from mortality and decay. The absence of time might just as well be religion.
I know, because I have seen generations come and go. They passed by my pedestal in an endless parade of decaying flesh, even the newly born already on their way to the exit while still groping helplessly for mother’s teats. And you would say to them that it’s just an illusion? Egad, you charlatan, you would indeed!
Everything is dust, and you know it as well as I do. These two hundred years that I have lived are but a small fragment of the time allotted me. But even I will fade. In the distance I already hear the squeaking vehicle of my demise, the wheels of the cleaning lady’s cart. Diligently she will brush my features with her feather duster, taking with her the tiniest molecules from my surface. And tomorrow she will be back, and the day after and so on. And even I will fade, and become a ruin along that line that moves so surely to the horizon.
