This review is from: The Labyrinth of Time: The Illusion of Past, Present and Future (Paperback)
As I suspected. Time does not exist! Peake doesn't necessarily confirm my view in this fascinating exploration of the nature of time, but he is brave enough to admit near the end of the book that time remains a profound mystery and part of this mystery may be that we've basically just made it up. We may have simply invented 'time' as a framework in which to make sense of that which has already happened and that which lies ahead - all just discrete moments in 'time' which are themselves only real in said moment. Nothing is real but right now.
What I enjoyed most about this book is Peake's obvious sense of wonder, which is infectious. Questions such as 'Is time cyclical or linear?' suddenly become potential subjects for chat down the pub. As such, it's a great read for any enquiring mind not overly attached to any particular dogma or worldview. I'll leave you with my favourite quote about time, from the inimitable John Shuttleworth: "The future isn't now. It's in a few minutes."
