The Changing Nature of Time

November 28, 2011,

Another example of the changing realities of our known world was given to me over the weekend. Two weeks ago it was to do with nature, this time it was to do with time.

I awoke early to hear the wind howling in the Welsh darkness and the great River Wye loud beneath my windows. The electronic clock next to me was blank and black and I realised there had been a power cut in the night, though when I looked out the distant lights from the village through the woods were visible as usual. When I went downstairs I found that the main power switch had tripped somehow: it must have happened hours before because the Aga range had lost most of its heat - an overnight process usually - and also the freezer had begun to defrost quite seriously.

In itself there was nothing unusual in having a power cut on a windy night in a heavily wooded and mountainous area of Britain and it has happened often before. On previous occasions, however, if the outage lasted more than a few minutes all the electrically powered clocks and timers in the house ceased to function and needed to be reset when the power was restored, but this time they did not. Every clock and timer was on time as if there had been no interruption. Not only that, the clock by my bed which had been running a few minutes slow, was suddenly keeping perfect time. It was extraordinary.

I cannot explain what happened, but it was as if linear time as we know time to be, and the material world had split from each other and were operating in separate realities. Or, our time of progressive seconds, minutes and hours had stopped when the power stopped. It was inexplicable and I am happy to accept it as such. What next, I wonder?
