Some thoughts on Time and Eternity…
First, from a Google search we get this oddly typographic explanation:
So eternity is like a continuum, with no beginning, and no ending, just like a circle.
So what is time then? Time is simply a paranthetical insertion in eternity created by God so that man can relate to God in eternity. It’s like putting 2 â€œbracketsâ€ on eternity to create Time â€“ with a beginning and an end!
You’re probably wondering, where am I getting this from? Where’s the proof? The Bible of course!

Pawn much prefers this explanation from Baudolino by Umberto Eco:
“Time is an eternity that stammers”
