POTD: The Arrow of Time

The Arrow of Time
Bozeman, Montana

The title of yesterday’s post was a nod to Robert Jordan’s sci-fi/fantasy book series which supposed a cyclical nature to time. While the fence in today’s photo is not as suggestive of an arrow as yesterday’s was of a wheel, it does imply a direction of sorts so I titled it The Arrow of Time to give Arthur Stanley Eddington’s ideas on the one-way direction of time equal treatment. (I first read about the arrow of time in one of my more or less futile efforts to understand quantum physics.)

We put up this snow fence about the same time in the 80’s as yesterday’s wheel. The fence no longer does its job well, but I can at least look at it as an example of something I’ve aged better than.
