DS7 said something to DH last night that seemed so ... out there ... I just feel like he must be parroting something he heard. But I googled and can't find it.

He said, "Time is the most powerful thing of all because if there never was time, there could never have been anything." He went on to explain more about what he meant, and DH surreptitiously caught a little on a recording. So he wasn't ONLY repeating what he heard. But I wondered if somebody else gave him the idea.

Has anybody heard this idea in something a 7-year old might come across? In case it's relevant - we aren't religious at all, so that sort of text wouldn't have been his "source."
