Description In this article there are encountered at one special topic and on a smalt scale the ordinary human experience in the shape of national proverb, existential feelings expressed by philosophy and the conception of thermodynamics, relativity and the theory of chaos in physics. The author střives to show at these examples of the philosophical and physical conception of time that any theory describing the time is meaningful only in the case when the time is connected with irreversibility. Reversible time is either nonsense, or eternity (i.e. the contradiction of tíme) and tíme, as it is understood by ordinary man, philosopher and modern physicist, is connected with irreversible processes so tightly, that it is possible to substitute them completely by this ireversibility.
