The very first "zero" episode of Future Fossils, in which co-hosts Michael Garfield and Evan Snyder set the tone for our new podcast by attempting foolishly to map time's hyperspatial landscape. We wind up absorbed by black holes, puns, and other singularities. What happens when we use the metaphor of geometry and geography to explore time? Does time have a shape – and if so, can we reconcile the perspectives of various cultures who claim time is different shapes? The arrow, circle, and helix might all come together in some vastly complicated, morphing super-thing that our mere primate brains just cannot comprehend. But that won't stop us from trying!
