Time. It is so embedded in our lives that we cannot even think without thinking of it as it forms the context within which we live. And it would be fun to ramble on about time, from Einstein's concept of Space-Time to the neurologists' discovery that time is "perceived" to even the current thinking that time, if it had a beginning, must have an end, which drives the physics people a little nuts since they can't use the infinity symbol in their calculations. At least at the quantum level. Plus it puts a bit of a pinch in the whole "Diamonds are forever" thing. Anyway, since I am sitting in my hotel in Kansas City unable to get some sleep before I catch a ridiculously early flight to Chicago in the morning, I was thinking about time in forensics and it occurred to me, which sometimes I can be Captain Obvious, that forensics is all about time; specifically about the past time. Forensics is a backward looking discipline, and unless you are in a science fiction novel or movie, it is never predictive from a time standpoint.Link: ExForensis
