And the deep irony is, time is a wake-like effect! It doesn't start until we do something! Then, all the mirror and possible universes branch off of what we do here in the Prime One. That is why it is both eternal AND finite. One returns back into the other form.
Doomed to carry the hands of Time.
Doomed to spend eternity watching the world and recording everything.
Doomed to watch everything and everyone be born and disappear while they are just there like a nobody.
They beg to be reborn. But then that "God" told them not.
