Time Regained!

James Gleick reviews Time Reborn: From the Crisis in Physics to the Future of the Universe, by Lee Smolin, at The New York Review of Books.
"For him the past is gone; the future is open: 'The fact that it is always some moment in our perception, and that we experience that moment as one of a flow of moments, is not an illusion.' Timelessness, eternity, the four-dimensional space-time loaf—these are the illusions."
