© 2006Time is a funny thing. Your experience tells you it changes, yet the clock on the wall, the watch on your wrist, and the relentless progression of it declare it is constant, that is to say, it never changes, it just marches forward, each second the same as the last, each day the length of the previous, never changing even though we know it does.
Every year the seasons change, and though the calendar says they begin at the same time, we know when they start and end are as predictable as the numbers on a roulette wheel. Sure there is a range of when it will occur, but the exact day, just as the exact number to bet on, changes all the time. The shift to spring will surely occur sometime in March or April, but to say that it occurs with a specific position of the sun relative to the earth is ludicrous.
