Time is a lot of the things people say that God is. There’s the always preexisting, and having no end. There’s the notion of being all powerful – because nothing can stand against time, can it? Not mountains, not armies. And time is, of course, all-healing. Give anything enough time, and everything is taken care of: all pain encompassed, all hardship erased, all loss subsumed.
