Time and time again

From the movie Slipstream

Life happens in four dimensions. Subtract time from the equation, and all you're left with is space. No motion, no change. Take away time and you change everything we know, everything we believe, everything we understand. Imagine a stopped clock. There would be no rush hour, no more rushing to get there, because you'd never be late. There would be no birth, death. No more broken hearts. Summer vacations would never end. You could never lose a job, your wife could never leave you. There would be no crime, no war. Nothing new of any kind. Nothing old. No will be, no want to be, no has been. Just one - long - uninterrupted - is.
