The Sun's Shadow

Stumbling to find a light switch in the dark

Time or Moment

Tonight we have been watching the Olympics live from Beijing and had an interesting little thought experiment. Beijing is 12 hour ahead of New York. That lead us to a weird conversation where by it is possible to be in two different places at the same time but not the same moment.

For example you could be in Beijing at 8:00 AM 8/12/08 and you could also be in New York at 8:00 AM 8/12/08, you can be in both places at the same time.  You just cannot be in both places at the same moment…
