Something about discharge and measuring time; that we can only measure time as things become more complex and break down. Something about Stephen Hawking and a good documentary about him by Errol Morris (HERE); the arrow of time. Something about time-perception and destruction; that if we only know time through the degradation of order into disorder perhaps we can change our sense of time by altering our proximity to large scale destruction. Some quote from Hawking from a New Scientist article in 1987, “we measure time in the the direction in which disorder increases.” Something about disasters and the slowing of time; your life flashing before your eyes. Finally, no thing can be known without something being destroyed.
