Prague Astronomical Clock Time at Troynovant:
temporizing on temporal philosophy, the nature of time;
including time travel to and from past and future,
as well as parallel and sidewise;
listed by Title

Thinking in time, moving in time. It is difficult to exist in spacetime without thereby being in time, or to write about anything not possessing duration: time seems basic and essential. What we list here are not history nor memory nor memoir, not the nature of speculation nor even future history, but works which engage or somehow entangle themselves with time as a dynamic force, perhaps even with the innocence of becoming.

Chiron [the Centaur] to Faust,
  responding to a query about Helen of Troy:

                      Philologists, I see,
have swathed your mind, like theirs, in pedantry.
A myth-born female is a thing apart,
Steps forth as needed by the poet's art,
Never of age nor over age,
At ever appetizing stage,
Abducted young, wooed in senescence yet,
Unbound by chronometric etiquette.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Remembrance at Troynovant
memory & remembering
  


  

[One traveler] ... on his first voyage, was a good deal worried by the constantly changing "ship-time." He was proud of his new watch at first, and used to drag it out promptly when eight bells struck at noon, but he came to look after a while as if he were losing confidence in it. ...

The ship was gaining a full hour every three days [sailing East], and this fellow was trying to make his watch go fast enough to keep up to her. But ... he had pushed the regulator up as far as it would go, and the watch was "on its best gait," and so nothing was left him but to fold his hands and see the ship beat the race. We sent him to the captain, and he explained to him the mystery of "ship-time," ... This young man asked a great many questions about seasickness before we left, and wanted to know what its characteristics were, and how he was to tell when he had it. He found out.
