    Does anyone recall if this idea was written in one of Pirsig's books?

    I vaguely recall it. I think it was Pirsig in ZAMM. As I recall, it wasn't a
    Indian tribe, but the ancient Greeks. The thing I remember most distinctly
    is the idea of time itself. Its like looking out the back window of a moving

    further away and harder to see. The future scenes are coming from behind,
    where you can not yet see. Wish I had more, but that's it.
