it's all just turtles all the way down...

"The problem is, you think you have time..."
- Jack Kornfield's Buddha's Little Instruction Book (1994)

We do, and we don't. And today we have an extra hour 
that will be reclaimed come spring. 
What we do seem to have is beliefs, and dreams, and experiences. 
We cling to those we liked and loved, and feel bad about 
or try to hide those we didn't or don't want. 
"It's all just turtles - all the way down."

"Turtles all the way down" is a jocular expression 
of the infinite regress problem in cosmology 
posed by the "unmoved mover" paradox.
