Heraclitus envisaged a receptacle region in the sky that collected fiery exhalations from the sea. During day time, this fire returns to earth. Literally, each day’s measures of fire from “the sun” is from a continually different batch of fire, each batch being in constant flux. Heraclitus’ astronomy might be wrong, but this example illustrates Heraclitus’ willingness to abandon the enduring identity of ordinary things and to affirm that what really exists is ever different present states of (fiery) flux.

And the common mortal belief that there is a metaphysical distinction between past, present, and future – plus passage between them – is also exposed as two-headed and backward turning. Being skeptical about the ultimate reality of time for reasons of logic is a theme that echoes in latter philosophy. Kant, for example, argues that time is merely an a priori form of human sensibility. It is both a form of “inner sense” and an aspect of how we experience and construct the empirical world. But he is adamant that noumenal reality (the reality of “things in themselves” or, we could say, what is in itself) is not temporal.
