Time flies only when you realise it


[Some opera… Calatrava, Valencia]

Do animals have a sense of time ..? Probably. But do they also have a sense of ‘non-personal’ time ..? Do they realise time to be something external, a (half)dimension..? Do they understand their inevitable death..? Is this what makes us stand out over (??) other animals?

Is this the major part of Original Sin ..? The existence or initiation, or realisation, of human mortality was (according to Milton) the first thing that happened after having eaten from the Apple. Before, there was no fear of death as it wasn’t known. After Original Sin, the fear of death determined everything.

So far. We’ll come back to the subject later, more extensively (I’ve only some 30 pages yet ;-).
