Time.  This subject has been studied and debated for centuries.  We've written books about it, made movies about it and barely understand the basics.  This study brings up some points to consider.

Just as the prism is a point at which an observer can see different light, depending on perspective, there is a point that serves a similar function when considering time.  That point is the speed of light.  Our perspective on time has only recently been explained as something relative.  Time at the speed of light means different things to the observer and to the traveler.  Scientists have only recently been able to describe the concept of time changing the closer we get to the speed of light.

Time is something every living person has some experience with. And how we perceive time varies widely from person to person, depending on endless factors. 

When you were a child and you were looking forward to something, time seemed to just drag on.  And when there was something you were enjoying so much you did not want it to end, time seemed to fly by.  Parents know this perception as reminded from the back seat: ďAre we there yet?Ē  I remember as a child being told to enjoy time because when I got older, time would slip away.  As Iíve grown older, Iíve grown to appreciate that concept.

Now consider this scene.  There is a fly sitting on a personís arm.  The person is sitting under a giant oak tree.  The person is looking afar off at a mountain range in the distance.  The person is looking at that mountain at dusk Ė the sun is setting.  The stars can be seen in the heavens.
