there is a gravity to time. imagine if i came in touch with and old friend. like the time in betwee feels weighted. like it would consoldite our relationship over the course of years/a decade. it feels significant. the weight of time adds depth to reality. to see friend afger several years seems to enhance the bond, as if the years prior to it were sort of justified or carried both of our weights together. that even though we havent seen each other in a long time, the fact that we both existed during this period was itself enough to warrant connection and notability. and this is true of object too. (ref what stays true over time is what is mot real). the sharing of time in this universe has a weight to it amongst people and things. sharing of time with no strings attached.
