For us physicists the distinction between past, present and future is an illusion’. why is time so weird? 53 When someone dies we think of them as irretrievably lost, yet they existed for long enough to have made an impression on our consciousness – enough for us to miss them. You do not grieve for children before they are born, yet the Universe a week before the birth of an infant is as bereft of that person as the one a week after they die, 80 years hence. Time in this way has such a close relationship to our experience of it that this, perhaps, sets it apart from all other physical quantities.
35 ratory studies, birds will not bother to return to a store of dead grubs, say, after a long time has elapsed, but will return to find seeds. This suggests a ‘what, where, when’ memory much like ours. These birds are also able to create complex strategies to cope with thieves. They hide their food where other birds cannot see it, or wait, their beaks stuffed, for other birds to fly away or turn aside before hiding their store. And birds who are habitual thieves tend to be better at hiding their food than ones who have not.
So all that is to come is, again, imagination. All that is real, therefore, is that infinitesimal sliver of time between past and present, which of course amounts to nothing, because as time never stops that sliver has zero thickness. So, time is real, but nothing else is. e. the view that it is only the present, the world at the moment ‘now’, that exists. New ideas about time recast this slippery quantity and try to remove the subjective perception of time by human brains from the equation, as the presentist view of time is increasingly at odds with the way physicists believe the world to be.
