Time Horizons: Messiah Complex

FLG was watching Russell Brand's Messiah Complex and was struck by several references to time horizons.   At one point, for example, Brand said he likes the idea that reality isn't permanent.   Later, he quoted Wittgenstein:
If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.
FLG is on the other side of both those points of view, which probably explains why his politics differ so much from Brand, but very interesting nonetheless.
