“Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.” ~ ~ Dion Boucicault
And Khronos took notice. Once noticed it remains noticed, an open loop that takes in what was before/what is now/what will be to come. Keeper of Time. Lord of Time. A god at the same time beyond what (ZV) could ever conceive of. Though, they are close. Time, in their grasp. Time, pulling them. Time, the endless possibilities, reconstructions, revisions, creation, immortal. To be Khronos. To be gods. To be THE Titan.
(ZV) was reaching/was holding/HAD HELD…
So it was
(ZV) is not there.
Disassembled to elementary particles
Then disassembled again
Z careens off of time lines, beginnings, endings, middles.
V is spread like a schmear across parallel universes
They cross paths as they zig zag in and out of dimensions
Time has no meaning
Khronos notices the irony
Z is lost in the absolute infinity
Valentina trespasses in her wake
Val descends into Zehara, a Mobius strip
A thousand-thousands of their beings are obliterated
To get back to a lab
It is not precise this time
They float, together, in front of Karen.
This is the day (ZV) doesn’t die.
It was (ZV)’s thought to do so
But never the intention.
I liked the idea that once noticed by Khronos, you are noticed in all your temporal dimensions. Or… something like that? Anyway, a guy like Khronos would see a lot, seeing you.

You question yourself too deeply in your observations, padawan.
Love that sentence ender: “Khronos would see a lot, seeing you.”
Might become one of the quotes I use.
Q: Mel, do you see the connections with the quotes to what I’ve written for the day?

A: here, I do. And often I think I’ve seen a connection, beyond “they are all about time.” But I can’t say I have always specifically focused on that connection. I will look more carefully at that, in your future posts.
“Once noticed it remains noticed” Even though this isn’t one of your quotes, it will become a quote I’m adding to my journal and one I suspect I will use for some time. It will, of course, be attributed to you Stu. This post has left me churned up emotionally – not sure why yet. I may have to sit with the emotions to find out.

Thank you. I don’t think I’ve ever been honored by being quoted.

I like it.
Now I need to make that a Tee Shirt.
Liquid Time takes Philosophy over (Emotions + Mythology) = Mean/?
I give myself headaches over all of this.
