time is glass

events are like glass in that as they happen attention is a kind of heat that allows reality to mould as it occurs, and as attention wanes heat cools glass hardens - but it's always flowing - glass is a crystaline liquid - over hundreds of years the bottom of a pane of glass gets thicker than the top - it just takes forever - so events and the past (& future) having no at6tention passing through them change very little -

but attention is like heat, like I said, & so then this attention to specific moments in history is like a strange attractor that keeps those moments fluxing as they ofccur, which makes them mutable

if parallel universes move laterally then our timestream & the adjacent ones topologies would be moving in and out of each other's areas like glass floating on liquid tin
