Book Recommendation:

The Order of Time, by Carlo Rovelli
Past and future are different from each other. Cause precedes effect. Pain comes after a wound, not before it. The glass shatters into a thousand pieces, and the pieces do not re-form into a glass...
We cannot change the past; we can have regrets, remorse, memories. The future instead is uncertainty, desire, anxiety, open space, destiny, perhaps. We can live toward it, shape it, because it does not yet exist. Everything is still possible...
. . . . Time is not a line with two equal directions: it is an arrow with different extremities.

And it is this, rather than the speed of its passing, that matters most to us about time.
