Definition a significant period of time — such as:
  • an historical period
  • a unit of geological time smaller than a period and larger than an age
  • an arbitrary astronomical time reference
  • an important time in someone's life
  • No, it is impossible; it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence,—that which makes its truth, its meaning—its subtle and penetrating essence.
