### „If two events are to be represented as occurring in succession, then—paradoxically—they must also be thought of simultaneously.“

— Gerald James Whitrow British mathematician 1912 - 2000

Context: Our conscious appreciation of the fact that one event follows another is of a different kind from our awareness of either event separately. If two events are to be represented as occurring in succession, then—paradoxically—they must also be thought of simultaneously.
As quoted by Max Jammer, Concepts of Simultaneity: From Antiquity to Einstein and Beyond (2008)
