"Locke sank into a swoon ;
 the garden died;
 God took the spinning jenny
 out of his side."

However, as Pope put it in his epitaph

"Nature and nature's laws lay hid in night,
God said 'Let Newton be' and all was light"

BTW there is a whole branch of Quantum Mechanics which ignores time, "Time
independent Quantum Mechanics"   Sort of an Eliotian Quantum Mechanics. :>)

    He was the only one of the Inklings who liked Eliot's work.
Not surprising at the time of the discovery of relativity by Einstein.
I can just see Newton evaporating in his grave.
In quantum mechanics particles are discussed as never touching but always
resonating with each other".
