It doesn't have to be a riddle, it can be a meditation.
Close your eyes and bring to your attention your sense of time. How does it feel? Do you think we have an ancient instinct for how it should flow? Something deeper than our circadian rhythms tuned through daylight exposure. Maybe its more our sense of gravity, a sense of atomic distortions.
Imagine we did, and then you can experiment with aligning that intuitive knowledge with what information you're receiving now. Does it match?
Is it in harmony?
Is it healthy?
Is it beautiful?
"...Who, as he was a happie imitator of nature, was a most gentle expresser of it.
His mind and hand went together:
and what he thought, he uttered with that easinesse,
that wee had scarse received from him a blot in his papers."
- John Heminger & Hanrie Condell on Shakespeare,
Extract from the preface to the First Folio of 1623
'Deep truth is often beautiful'.
'The process of science and art can look rather different: a new artistic creation rarely proves an old one wrong; artists rarely look at a scene through microscopes, or understand a sculpture through explanations. Yet scientific and artistic creation do sometimes look remarkably alike.'
- David Deutsch 'The Beginning of Infinity - Explanations That Transform the World'
