Well, It’s About Time-Part I

Well, It’s About Time – Part I
6 sessions • 12 hours


Surprisingly, “time” is the most frequently used word in the English language. From music (“Time is on My Side”- Rolling Stones; “Does Anybody Really Know What Time it Is”- Chicago) and literature (“It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times” – Charles Dickens) to sports (“Time Out;” “Overtime”) and television (“Real Time with Bill Maher”), you get the idea. But what is time really? We experience it, use it, and depend on it, so let’s consider exactly what it is. Join us to explore the true nature of time, from Scientific and Cosmological viewpoints to Human experience and point of view. Discover and understand how time is as pervasive in our lives as breathing.
