Thief of Time
Thursday, September 9, 2004

Suppose that the smallest amount of time is the time is takes to get from then to now and that the universe is destroyed and recreated at every tick. Now suppose you build a clock that ticked at precisely this rate. The clock couldn't both tick and be destroyed and recreated at the same time now could it? Of course not, so the only logical solution is that all time would have to stop. That's just part of the wonderful, funny and profound plot of Terry Pratchett's Thief of Time. It's a great book. I started and finished it last night. Where did all the time go?
