if we could go back
backwards in time: story behind the song
I didn’t graduate from UCSD, instead I chose to drop out and play music. Nevertheless, my “almost mater” still sends me newsletters and ways to give them money. One of the articles caught my eye- a philosophy professor tackling the subject of time. (I think I remember even his name was time related, like a misspelling of calendar or something)
It got me thinking: If time is a “stubbornly persistent illusion” what would happen if we were able to journey outside of time? If we could go back, would we take the same path if we knew what we know? Would we make the same mistakes? Or did the mistakes that brought us here give us the insight to even call that decision a mistake?
My understanding of the professor’s insight was that the past, the present, and the future are comprised of the same “truth” even if it looks different to us. And if there is truly a way back, maybe redemption and forgiveness are the only way forward.
We recorded portions of this song in reverse, to give the listener a swimming, floating feeling. After all, reversing the tape might be the only time travel we’ve got.
