Frozen time

AJ Heschel again:

“To the spiritual eye space is frozen time, and all things are petrified events.”

A petrified event sounds like an artwork, but also like anything else made by human hands. Art can also aspire to be more like a plant or an animal, a living thing, an ongoing event, always new, never repeated. Art’s material eye? Science doubts time.
