“All our experience is bound up with time, nor is it possible to imagine a timeless experience. But even if it were possible, we could not, without contradiction, suppose that we ever shall have such an experience. All experience, therefore, for aught that philosophy can show, is likely to resemble the experience we know-if this seems bad to us, no doctrine of a Reality distinguished from Appearances can give us hope of anything better.”

– Bertrand Russell, Seems, Madam? Nay, it is.
