‘If you try to get your hands on time,’ said the physicist Julian Barbour, ‘it’s always slipping through your fingers. People are sure that it’s there but they can’t get hold of it. Now my feeling is that they can’t get hold of it because it isn’t there at all.’ He and many other physicists see each individual moment as a whole, complete and existing in its own right. We live in a succession of ‘Nows’.
