He could never find the words to explain, eventually he stopped trying. Humans had too rigid a grasp of time, confined to sailing across the oceans he swam in. Time was only linear as he lived it; a scattered handful of breaching leaps into existence as they knew it. The past, the future, none of it more substantial than the memories he took away. But they clung to the surface, even Jack, stubbornly demanding to see the horizon. Where are we going? Where have we been? If he could only make them see… it was all just waves and water.
