Having just returned from a delightful -- and exhausting -- trip to Chicago, I spent Monday evening pondering the feasibility of temporal displacement.
Time travel may be the stuff of fiction -- at least for now -- but there is no doubt that the clock is moving too fast.
As a result, we often try to cram too many activities into a short amount of time, thinking we can "beat the clock." Even if we succeed, it beats us as well.
"Beat" is an accurate term to describe my physical state when I got home from the airport Monday afternoon.
