The Mystery of Time

The nature of time is one of the great mysteries of science.  Why does time seem to pass differently under different circumstances?   Did time ever have a beginning?  Will it end someday?  Might it be possible to travel backward in time?

USP is lucky to have an Intellectual Heritage course about time where students have a chance to discuss some of these profound questions.

I recently had the opportunity to participate in an international essay contest on the Nature of Time.  My entry (judged 4th place), called The Garden of Forking Paths: Time as an Expanding Labyrinth,  and the contributions of many other scientists, philosophers and writers can be found at the the website of Foundational Questions in Physics and Cosmology.
