“Reversing the arrow of time was possible for the quantum particles because they were correlated — their properties were linked in a way that isn’t possible for larger objects, a relationship akin to quantum entanglement but not as strong. This correlation means that the particles share some information. In thermodynamics, information has physical significance”
(Conover, 2016, p. 10)
Philosophers generally agree that time is continuous as it does not stop and start or reverse. It has also a direction and a form of order. Therefore, time is progressive and sequential, from past to present; from present to future.

Do I have sufficient time? Is is too long to save? Can I wait? How much time do I need to save enough to purchase a wrist watch?

This visual consideration was inspired by a boy in a town called Jacmel. He continuously made visual references to my basic, inexpensive watch and indicated how impressed he was with the idea of “knowing the time”.
Time, as a concept, has become a very important part of my thinking. Therefore, if requires more contextual analysis and investigation to understand its significance in different contexts.
Everything will eventually turn into dust. A handful of sand…
