240. Do spirits perceive time in the same manner as we do?

“No, and this is why you do not always understand us when you are trying to establish dates and time periods.”

A spirit’s life is outside the realm of time as we perceive it. The idea of time is lost on them and centuries, which seem so long to us, appear to be only a few instants lapsing into eternity for them, just as the variations of the ground would fade and disappear to someone high in space.
