A second..

Braid_hourglass

Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever.

Inky’s take: …why not?  The world changes in a moment, in the life of a thought, the touch of a hand, the utterance of a word.  In a second you have changed your path, and you can never go back to exactly how it was just a moment ago.

So if you could ‘be’ in that second, then why could you not live, forever?
