Changing Times: How Cultures Old and New Perceive the Perplexing Concept of Time

The cyclical perception of time in the East is much different from the Western linear perception of time. As an example, whilst the latter places an emphasis on action, the former values reflection, especially of things that have happened in the past. This is due to the belief that since time repeats itself, it is imperative that lessons of the past be taken into consideration when one makes decisions in the present.

Time is like a roll of shit paper, the closer you get to the end the faster it goes.

The end is like the beginning, drooling on yourself, wearing diapers, and babbling incoherently.
