As the “Noir Prophet” William Gibson remarked, “Time moves in one direction, Memory another.”

Time has been called our most precious resource, the metaphoric ‘meter’ by which our lives are gauged. It is a currency to be used as we wish, but is never conserved. One might think of it as a sort of Mephistophelean bargain – for though it is subject to our whims to be used, spent wisely, or wasted as we see fit, it is at the same time a cruel and ultimately unknowable master, pressing us forward on a journey in whose advancement we are given little choice.
