Issie and her new found friend, Gwen, find a way to travel back in time to the year 1360. Although being born in 1992, she discovers that her father was born in the 1300’s and is next in line to the throne of England. Issie meets her grandparents for the first time, King Edward III and Queen Philippa. Due to turbulent times, John Fitzalan is in charge of protecting Issie and Gwen from William, the brother to Issie’s father’s, Edward the Black Prince, who wants the throne and will do anything to get it. Issie starts forming an attachment to John and finds herself in love with someone who was born about 1340. Her grandparents want to arrange her marriage to Prince Philip of France to get France to become a vassal kingdom. Enemies want Issie to marry the Prince of France so this will leave John free to marry someone else. When that doesn’t work, Issie is accused of stealing and John is accused of inappropriate behavior with someone else. Court is held and the events unfold.

PAPERBACK: In his 10th book on post-relativity philosophy of time, the Ghanaian philosopher argues that all the theories we read about time are useful only for constructing clocks to accord accurately with the earth's regular motions and astronomical features. The many bemusing technical terms employed (like duration between events, sidereal time, solar time, nutation, equinox, earth's rotation, the precession of the equinoxes etc.), were all invented to account for fixed, general and absolute time, running all through the cosmos and the same everywhere. This view of time, however, was abolished by Einstein. He adds that everything we have ever used to reckon time (including atomic time) amounts to mere physical cycles, pulses or oscillations that we count as the units of time---the years, for instance---but they are passing. He has also uncovered Einstein's undoubted snub to 4-D geometry.

Time and Realism

In the light of such experiences, the claim that time's passage is an illusion, made
not by a playful skeptic but as a factual claim, sounds astonishing. And yet, with a
little more reflection, disturbing questions come up: is it really time that passes, ...

A new view of the metaphysics of time, arguing that the traditional tensed-tenseless debate within analytic philosophy should be seen as the first stage in a philosophical investigation of time, and that the next stage belongs to phenomenology. How does time pass? Does time itself move, or is time's passage merely an illusion? Analytic philosophers belong, for the most part, to one of two camps on this question: the tensed camp, which defends the reality of time's passage, conceiving the present as “ontologically privileged” over the past and future; and the tenseless camp, which denies time's passage and holds that all events, whatever their temporal location, are ontologically equal. In Time and Realism, Yuval Dolev goes beyond the tensed-tenseless debate to argue that neither position is conclusive but that the debate over them should be seen as only the first stage in the philosophical investigation of time. The next stage, he claims, belongs to phenomenology, and, he argues further, the phenomenological analysis of time grows naturally out of the analytic enterprise. Dolev shows that the two rival theories share a metaphysical presupposition: that tense concerns the ontological status of things. He argues that this ontological assumption is natural but untenable, and that leaving it behind creates a new viewpoint from which to study central topics in the metaphysics of time. Dolev shows that such a study depends on the kind of meticulous attention to our firsthand experiences that drives phenomenological investigations. Thus, he argues, phenomenology is the venue for advancing the investigation of time. Time and Realism not only analyzes the tensed-tenseless debate, resolving some of its central difficulties along the way, it transcends it. It serves as a bridge between the analytic and the continental traditions in the philosophy of mind, both of which are shown to be vital to the philosophical examination of time.

When Arthur fell in the water his body twitched several times against the wet wire, then total darkness. Arthur began to visualize a long tunnel. It seemed to be an ancient passage way, the walls were covered with forgotten languages. ... A face appeared; it looked incredibly ancient. A voice seemed to enter and speak to Arthur's psyche, "It is not your time ye, for ye have another path to follow." Arthur turned to speak to the apparition, but it had disappeared. Arthur's body seemed to become hollow, similar to a long, black tunnel within himself. He tried to scream, but he had no voice. From the far depths of his being, a white, blinding ball of light slowly began to come into view. The light came far below his feet to the height of his upper chest; at the same time a grey hand, covered with caked and clotted blood, and reeking of death, and disease grabbed Arthur. He was yanked toward the apparition, several voices crying out at once. "Doctor, we missed you ..."

Meet the man on the stage, flanked by Hamlet and Heisenberg, uncertain of what was and what will be, but quite assured that he cannot keep time: Peter Hammill. The critical toolbox and the associative palette are used in roughly equal measures, leaving scholarly glyphs as well as poetic graffiti down Hammill's passage of time.

This book invites readers who consider themselves savvy investors in their long term future to give some serious thought to the lifetime(s) that may come next. The author’s approach is to investigate the essential relationship of the human soul to time. Whether the reader currently believes in one lifetime or many, the relationship of the soul to time will condition whatever comes next on the other side of the portal of death. There are many naïve portrayals and gross misconceptions about what comes next, whether one believes in an eternity in heaven or an indefinite number of reincarnations. This book tries to get beyond many of these limited conceptions. Too many people have only childhood information to work with when thinking about their long term future. Unfortunately, everything you need to know to make savvy investments in your long term future was not taught in kindergarten

But there are also those whose "disregard" of the passing of time is due to their absorption in Eternity, and The Eternal One.

Through The Passage Of Time is a collection of poems that challenges the past, the present and the future in the heart of a young girl. It questions life, love and freedom in search of answers in a young woman. These words talk to the youth, the young-at-heart, the lovers, the artist, the friend, the Christian, the wayward, the dreamers, the lost soul and more. It was written not solely from desire, but of a need to express the overwhelming flow of thoughts and speech. These poems carry a spiritual foundation; to rebel sometimes, to submit, to inspire, to learn about my heart, but to always look up for direction from my Lord.

Far from a survey project or linear documentation, Gage's photographs dig deeper to an emotional level uncovering a personality and emotion in ice. Although beautiful, fascinating and sometimes awe inspiring, ice is also the canary in the coal mine for changes in our global climate. Gage's work is a metaphor and warning for what we might loose in this quiet crisis developing before our eyes.

Passage of Time is a collection of poems which reflect their values, interests and life experiences, which were understandably quite different. They are based on remembrances throughout the years as well as current events in their lives. The poems adequately express the rare blend of characteristics that identify their unique personalities. The topics span a wide range, such as time, music, collections of things that are important to them, their love of art and of color. Readers will also find humor and the influence of aging. Their love of the changing seasons is represented as are Children, an important ingredient in both of their lifestyles. Readers of all ages, they hope, will find something in this collection that they can identify with, regardless of their position in life..

As the study of time has flourished in the physical and human sciences, the philosophy of time has come into its own as a lively and diverse area of academic research. Philosophers investigate not just the metaphysics of time, and our experience and representation of time, but the role of time in ethics and action, and philosophical issues in the sciences of time, especially with regard to quantum mechanics and relativity theory. This Handbook presents twenty-three specially written essays by leading figures in their fields: it is the first comprehensive collaborative study of the philosophy of time, and will set the agenda for future work.
