Exploring the mystery of time from different perspectives: art, science, philosophy, psychology, literature, film, mystical experience…
“I hear the ruin of all space, shattered glass and toppled masonry, and time one livid final flame.”
James Joyce, Ulysses
What is time? It is at the same time what is closest to us and the deepest mystery. So close we cannot step outside it and watch it from a distance. And actually, when we attempt to do so, the notion of time itself seems to fade away, to dissolve into timelessness, where past, present and future merge into an eternal instant.
Join us at The Pari Center to explore the mystery of time, from the perspectives of art, science, psychology, philosophy, literature, film and mystical experience. We are not aiming at answering the impossible questions but rather awakening to the awesome fact of our existence in time, of the transient, terrible, marvelous, phenomenon that is life itself.
