how is the motif of time displayed in ch 2 (p. 28- 30), when barbara and billy are arguing about tralfamadore??

this episode starts with "why didn't you answer me.." (p. 28) to "i didn't think the time was ripe" (p. 30)..

Barbara is concerned with the everyday, relatively small things and small moments in time.

Billy Pilgrim, by contrast, is concerned with the big picture. That is, the eternal.

These are two different perspectives on time.
