75 All the Time in the World

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)
Dall'album dei Deep Purple

A proposito del vecchio Zenone.

L'idea che una tartaruga non possa essere battuta in una corsa è ovviamente ridicola ma matematicamente possibile se si permettesse lo spostamento del traguardo e si rallentasse l'inseguitore ad ogni passo. Quanto possono essere piccoli (o grandi) lo spazio e il tempo?

Ognuno è un numero in movimento definito costantemente dalla nostra abilità nel misurarlo.

Una meravigliosa riflessione come questa può essere fatta tanto stando comodamente seduti quanto andando a caccia di rettili.

All the Time in the World

(Airey, Gillan, Glover, Morse, Paice)

There's still a long way to go
And the nights are closing in
But if I'd travelled any faster babe
Lord knows where I might have been
Right from those early days I put my faith
In the axle - not the wheels
Like old Zeno's toytus
With Achilles snapping at my heels

Don't worry
There's no hurry
Here we are with all the time in the world

I could have been a high-flying dealer
But I have no desire for speed
I could have been a wide receiver
But I've got everything I need
And so I watch the world go racing by
Tearing up the street
I lay back in the long grass
Take it easy and rest my feet

Don't worry
You know there's no hurry
Here we are with all the time in the world

No-one ever held me back
No-one ever put me in chains
No-one ever saw me racing ahead
No-one had to tug on my reins
As everybody knows, I may be slow
But I never quit
Sometimes - on a good day - I sit and think
Sometimes I just sit

Don't worry
Relax there's no hurry
Here we are with all the time in the world
