TIME AND ETHICS

ByRita Charon

The earthly predicament predicates time. Animate beings and inanimate things age. Be they made of metal or of wood or of stone or of flesh, objects wear. Chemical, biological, planetary, cosmological, and emotional reactions occur in steps. Causality connotes sequence. Communication requires tense. Simultaneity is nearly unattainable. Timelessness is unbearable.
