Many people do not like the idea that time has a beginning, probably because it smacks of divine intervention.
We seem less sensitive to the value of time, even if, unlike money, time can never be regained.
If time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once, then consciousness is nature’s way of keeping us from thinking everything at once.

Time is one of the great mysteries of the universe. We are all swept up in the river of time against our will.
