The reason for that being?
One of the many things I liked about my old professor's study of Burnt
Norton and the other Q's was its explication of the purposely rendered
false note of the first lines of BN. Strictly speaking, as a moment's
reflection may reveal, there is no time present. The phrase is a
contradiction (not a paradox). This exceeds any parameters of Einsteinian
discussion which, in its figurations, is still time in a bottle, so to speak.
