I would say that I had a good time at Matt Welcome’s informative and funny discussion, but of course time doesn’t actually exist. Or at least that’s what he was trying to prove as he talked us through at rapid pace the Grandfather Paradox Theory and Einstein’s illusive views on the past, present and future.
Making some interesting and scarily plausible points, it was all very Matrix-like as the misconceptions about the actuality of time were highlighted to us. Trying to convince us that Time is something we have been led to assume exists rather than something which actually exits, Matt was adamantly opposed to airy philosophical theories about the world and life and what it all means and stuck to his point of trying to prove what he believed to be true.
With his comedy background, Matt’s attitude was fun and engaging, nothing like those stuffy professors or whimsical philosophers you would usually associate with such a profound subject. With the help of some extensive research and entertaining slides, we began to question the existence of the past and future and the exactness of the humble clock.
Slightly baffled by the whole thing, I left with an aching head, but one now full of some very interesting and worrying possibilities. Remaining clear and concise in what he was trying to prove, Matt’s show certainly held the audience’s attention. It’s definitely worth a drop in; at least you know it won’t be a waste of time...
