THE NATURE OF TIME

Time contravenes the temporal in inner consciousness. While its linear manifestations too undergo imperceptible configurations. The allocation and slotting of time defies the telos of memory. Time coexists with multitudinous temporalities in numerous contingents. Causality in one realm is counterpointed by an opposite causality in another realm. This simultaneal existence of time throws into relief apocryphal categories along a linear continuum. Time, like the universe, is not reduplicative but dialectical. Stipples of a multifarious quotidian engage in a colloquy wherein intersecting subjectivities interleave and intermesh. What is rendered intransigent is the fluidity, the protean nature of time. Indeterminacy crystallizes into crenellated whorls that diffuse and attenuate.
The diffusity of time conglomerates mosaically. Variegated contextualities concatenate and disperse. Each causal realm, however, is interlinked to the context it emerges from yet each revisitation brings forth a impalpable metamorphosis, indiscernible to rational consciousness, in the onward propulsion of time. The present is a myth whose mythopoeia underscores both its frangibility and its immutability. Past and future converge to inform the present and eschew compartmentalization. Yet the past by its very nature repudiates the singularity it purports to embody and entomb. The past partakes of and blends with a kaleidoscope of innumerable pasts so that the past becomes indefinable and uncapturable. Each receding into its constituents is the inescapable conclusion to any attempt to cohere and create patterns. And the patterns too undergo transformations with each recollection. Which leaves human consciousness with an evanescent conceptualization of time and its inessentiality. The future too, by virtue of its unknowability congeals into fluid and precarious ideograms.
While multiple journeyings coexist and there is neither a beginning or an end to time except its linear progression then mortality and time's outward passage becomes ineluctable. However the uncertainty surrounding the focal point of mortality underpins the very incertitude that constitutes time. Linearity is as tenuous as metaphysics in that both express an unfathomability and indecipherability. The coordinates of time dapple consciousness with recoverable paradigms yet uncertain memory reinforces the uncertainty surrounding these coordinates. All that exist are nebulous hieroglyphs, a palimpsest of vastness which yields only a blank slate which we fill with our stories. Hence existence is ratified.
