I guess you have lost me here. What is hard to 
accept? That time is endless, or that it isn't? 
Both ideas seem to be found in many folklores and 
creation myths. Many Christians for example 
believe that there will be a 'last time' after 
(or at) the second coming, at which point the 
entire corporeal universe, including time, will 
simply cease to be. Heaven, on the other hand, 
goes on for ever. So you need both kinds of time 
to fully grok eschatology.    (02)
