Time Is Flat

Time Is Flat

In Australia’s Parliament building in Canberra, a man moves along on his way to work, rushed by the ticking of time. In Stephen Hawking’s The Grand Design he asserts that we have a lot to learn when it comes to time. In the past, he says, we used to look at the Earth as flat. Then over time we found it to be round. He says the same is true with time. Now, we see it as linear, always moving forward, always putting the past behind us. But someday, we will collectively agree that it too is a sphere, with no end and no beginning.
