And so it begins...

Channel surfing at four in the morning. As expected, there's nothing on that's worth writing home about. A quote, then, if nothing else: british author Jeanette Winterson, on time, physics and lies,

Lies 1: There is only the present and nothing to remember.
Lies 2: Time is a straight line.
Lies 3: The difference between the past and the future is that one has happened while the other has not.
Lies 4: We can only be in one place at a time.
Lies 5: Any proposition that contains the word "finite" (the world, the universe, experience, ourselves...)
Lies 6: Reality as something which can be agreed upon.
Lies 7: Reality as truth.

from: Sexing the Cherry, 1989.
