Time stood still no longer… (Creation Myth Part 1)

And in that moment, time stood still no longer, the soul of the world conspired. The sky, conjoined at the horizon of the sea, together they knew no other, and they were one in the same body, two heads and one heart. Their bond, a love that is forged in the creation of everything, has been there before time began and will be here after time ceases to exist.

Could Venus really have been bald and bearded?

Relative time is time that you feel.On the other hand, you may be more aquatinted with  absolute time. This is the time you see on your watch, it is the time you wake up for work or set TIVO to record your favorite show. 

Recently I experienced relative time but I had no idea until AFTER I experienced it. The weekend went by and it felt like a whole week long of experiences, I got more out of my weekend!  Saturday and Sunday was the same forty-eight hours that it always is, but it felt so satisfyingly more. 

The Cyclops baby challenges our perception of time.
