A Brief History of Time

A Conversation

“So, time flows forward and past as a ribbon containing our history and future?”

“Yes, like a long strip of tape.”

“But that would mean a higher power put all the events on the tape.”

“Not all the events. Just the choices. You can make a choice, create an event, and encounter the next choice.”

“It sounds like you could end up back where you started.”

“All the choices are like pins on the timeline. You can discover the same choices endlessly.”

“And get nowhere.”

“The adventure is in making the choices: you never know what will happen.”

“My timeline will be entirely different from yours?”

“I may have the same choices, but yes, you will experience a different timeline.”

“My heads hurts.”

“Wait until you think about parallel universes and how all the same choices are there and yet result in different outcomes.”

“I only want to worry about the present.”

“What’s that?”

“Should I have the cranberry bliss bar or the pumpkin bread?”
