He examines the differences between cyclic, linear, biological, cosmic, and space-time, and provides frequent diversions into fascinating topics such as the Mayan calendar, the migration of birds, the dances of bees, precognition, and the short, crowded lives of mu-mesons, particles produced by cosmic-ray showers that exist for just two-millionths of a second.
