Well, that might have been lurking about somewhere in the recesses but I wasn’t consiously aware. Vague memories of Aristotle and the tortoise, so I guess so, but neither mathematics nor philosophy held all that much charm for me during my school years.

What is striking to me is that there is a seeming eternity in every second of every day. Having lost a few loved ones over the years and not always having had a strong religious faith, that comforted me, odd as it sounds.
