Time Line or Time Circle?
Indian scriptures (puranas) talk of cyclic time. That means that the 4 yugas cycle, the manvantaras cycle, the kalpas cycle and so on. And while the major events repeat, the minor events can vary from cycle to cycle.
20th century physics view time as a dimension closely connected to space and thinks of loops and wrinkles and worm holes and the like. Einstein once asked someone “does station X stop at this train?” Godel said that the present could influence the past.
It’s time to think about time!!!!
The concept of time as a straight line from -infininty to + infinity is passe.
