TIME (9TH REPORT TO KHHHTGHHH)

Dear Khhhtghhh! We are so shocked by our latest discovery that we just do not know how to properly convey it to you. We have already told you that humans can be at only one place at one time. But that is not the complete picture of these poor creatures’ plight. Believe it or not, they can only move in one direction in time and they call it moving forward. They believe that time is linear and goes like a straight line, so not only are they totally unaware of the complete expanse of time, these miserable beings cannot even move ‘backwards’ in time. So they spend their ignorant lives just moving forward, they have but one chance at any given moment and whatever happens in that moment, they are completely powerless to change it afterwards.

But that is not all. As we have learnt from our stay here, humans have plenty of limitations but they also have this uncanny ability to enhance their effects by their stupidity. Let us explain. Despite the fact that they cannot change their past, they spend an unbelievable amount of time dwelling on it. They have all kinds of emotions that they call by different names, all of which are in one way or the other related to their past.

They feel sadness or grief (which is basically feeling bad about something that has already happened and cannot be changed), anger (a feeling of aggression against something that was done or said in the past), regret (wishing that they had done something they didn’t or had not done something they did), nostalgia (remembering a past moment and feeling bad that it has gone) and many many more.

Interestingly for us (and stupidly for them) they do not seem to be even remotely concerned about the present, which is the moment that they can actually do something about. They spend their present either worrying about the future or remembering their past until the present becomes the past as well, and then they start remembering that. I know it is confusing, but that is how they live. We think it is pretty pathetic, but none of them appears to be bothered about it, they just keep moving in time and keep looking back towards things they cannot do anything about. They are like vehicles moving at top speed where the whole windscreen is actually a rear-view mirror. No wonder then that their lives are so full of accidents.
