The magic of time can compress not only memories but whole lifespans
Memory holds within its slivers whole eras and aeons. We walk around with a store of time compressed within us. In our legends, however, time can compress not only memories but whole lifespans. We find that in such instances time splits, and when it does, our existence and destinies split too. Studying these split lives, we discover that while one is lived at the customary pace, the other unfolds in minuscule time. At some point, when one of these lives unravels, no difference is found in the experience of the life within the two.
