Time is not a linear flow, as we think it is, into past, present, and future.

…catching a glimpse of his rather hippyish form in a mirror, he wonders at this atavism of apparel, is it an inversion of foetal ontogeny, in which the phenotype passes through previous fashion stages? Soon there will be gaiters and gloves…I will probably die, he thinks, clad in animal skins.
