In Search of the Nature of Time

Many of us today, the world over, will be counting the seconds as Mid Night approaches and a New Year dawns. All of us during some moment of our lives have wondered about the fundamental nature of time. But, while it dominates our lives and all of us are bound up in its inexorable passage, few of us can give a precise definition of what Time with a capital “T” precisely is.

Today being the last day of 2008 AD we at Discovery Enterprise are going to go in search of the nature of time and explore it in all its majesty, wonder and mystery.

Most of the events taking place around us everyday happen too quickly or too slowly for us to see them. But imagine if you could see the changing phases of the moon, the sweep of the seasons and the shifting of continents, they are all connected to events happening to the here and now. Today scientists are using new technologies to shed light on forces that transform our world and universe on the most epic of scales. Dear readers its time for an extraordinary journey of discovery through the fourth dimension as we go in search of the nature of time. And, on behalf of Dennis, Ralph and my own humble self we would like to wish each of you a Happy New Year full of many blessings and good fortune. May Father Time rain much good fortune on each and every one of you dear and loyal readers.

Exploring Time – Part 01

Exploring Time – Part 02

Time – BBC – With Michio Kaku

In this four-part series, string theory pioneer Michio Kaku goes on an extraordinary exploration of the world in search of time. He discovers our sense of time passing and the clocks that drive our bodies. He reveals the forces of time that make and destroy us in a lifetime. He journeys to some of the Earth’s most spectacular geological sites to look for clues to the extraordinary depths of time at a planetary level. Finally, he takes us on a cosmic journey in search of the beginning (and the end) of time itself.
