Now versus Time

When it is "now," it is "now" in every place; it is "now" over all the universe. But matter cannot tell when it is "now," or describe what "now" is. No instrument, however ingenious, can be so accurate, so exact, as to be able to strike "now": it would always strike too early or too late.

"Now" is a fixed fact, and is always absolute. The time, for instance, of noon in one place may be quite another time in another part of the world. On the other hand, "now" in Europe is also "now" in Australia and in America. In fact, it is "now" at the same instant everywhere.
