its inside is bigger than its outside

Final C.S. Lewis class.
It's happening--right now.
We're discussing eschatological time and The Last Battle. And we're discussing the two different types of time, kairos and chronos. Madeleine L'Engle often talks about chronos and kairos in her books. 
Although humans experience chronos uniformly, moment by moment, the kairos of a moment can be completely different from the chronos of the moment. The kairos of moments that have deep significance is thicker than the kairos of those moments of everyday life. 
In moments of true kairos, chronos hardly matters.
