Time. Space. Reality. It’s more than a linear path. It’s a prism of endless possibility, where a single choice can branch out into infinite realities, creating alternate worlds from the ones you know.

Time is a human concept. Nothing about it actually exists.
All that really matters is now.
This moment.
Nothing more, nothing less.

@Blackwater_Park Dr. Emmet Brown called it 1.21 jigawatts. It took me years to realize that I pronounced it wrong. It’s a tell tale sign that people watched the back to the future trilogy.

No, Emmet Brown pronounced it wrong.

@ragingloli That’s what I meant.
