The Time Machine by H.G. Wells On the Origin of Species by Charles Darwin
The selections in this series reflect two ways of thinking about TIME. The first is time as we experience it: as a line, an arrow, a conveyor belt into the future. It moves in one direction. But the sciences have come far enough (and our wisdom traditions have known it for millennia) that a linear understanding of time is ultimately incomplete, impoverished.
What is our world made of? Is it the only world? Are there, finally, as many worlds as there are minds? If time is a constitutive feature of a world, its binding feature, then deconstructing our limited understanding of time has the capacity to destabilize our very place in the world.
