...your ancestor did not believe in a uniform, absolute time. He believed in an infinite series of times, in a growing, dizzying net of divergent, convergent and parallel times. This network of times which approached one another, forked, broke off, or were unaware of one another for centuries, embraces all possibilities of time. -- Jorge Luis Borges.
This quote would be a good epigraph for a separate chapter on the difference between calendar time and innovation time. In the Scalable Innovation book and Reverse Brainstorming sessions we talk about this important concept very briefly.
