  1. Thomas Aquinas explored the nature of time in comparison with the nature of eternity. Here's what he writes::

    “Obviously, time and eternity are not the same thing. The meaning of this difference is sought by some in the fact that eternity has no beginning and no end, while time has a beginning and an end. However, this difference is accidental, not essential. After all, if we accept that the time has always been and always will be, in accordance with the statement of those who believe the movement of heaven is eternal, then the distinction between time and eternity will remain, according to Boethius, that eternity in each moment celokupno, time is not inherent; as well as in the fact that eternity is the measure of stay, and time is a measure of movement… Since “eternity”is a measure of abiding, to the extent that an object moves away from abiding in being, it also moves away from eternity. Moreover, some objects are so far removed from a stable stay that their existence is subject to change or consists in change, and such objects have time as their measure; such are all movements, as well as the existence of perishable things.” (Cited in: Borgosh Y. Thomas Aquinas, Moscow, 1966, p. 150).
