Ever think about time? I mean, think about it at its most basic level, and not just why you’re always late for shit? Like, what makes it move only in a direction we call “forward”?

Well, some scientists from Griffith University may have found (at least part of) the answer. Seems that certain types of subatomic particles called mesons exhibit a “jiggle” that, if their theory is proven right, moves the universe forward in time. The jiggle acts asymmetrically; it doesn’t seem to affect space at all. Perhaps both oddest and most inevitable of all, the jiggle does move time slightly backwards despite the general forward motion. Universe’s transmission be slippin’, I guess.
