TIME

Time
is another

way for
space and

matter
to make

the world,
as light

is another
way to

under-
stand it.



TODAY'S PROBLEM

x is the distance to the edge
of the universe.

c is the speed
of light.

d is the moment
of your death.

Solve for d.
Show your work.



ALL THIS

All this
immense
universe
is not

just for us.
The Great
Attractor
itself is

being
pulled some-
where by
something

Greater.
And what
that is goes
farther

than our
imagining
can take us.
This is

more than
some road
trip around
the stars:

we are
flying
towards the
meaning of

meaning.
