Hegel famously begins his Science of Logic with presuppositionless Being, which turns out to mean the same thing an Nothing, leading to the notion of Becoming.  This important concept is explored in some depth.  It is also compared to our own personal perception of the flow of time.   Block spacetime versus time as a process is explored.  The possibility of a time ultimately being a circle, which Hegel touched on, is also examined.
