TIME. Mortal measurements; limits, in which are summed up all human acts, thoughts, beliefs, opinions, knowledge; matter; error; that which begins before, and continues after, what is termed death, until the mortal disappears and spiritual perfection appears.
—Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 595
If I were to tell you I misplaced my pen, and then asked you, "How long will it take me to find it?" how would you answer? Maybe you'd say my question doesn't compute. I'm asking the wrong question. Time isn't really the issue. Asking "how long" doesn't tell us the real "how"—how to find it. Well, we may think the question is "where." But whatever we've lost, the human mind is more worried at a deeper level about time, about how long.
