When someone appraises a work of human ingenuity, whether it be a piece of writing or music, or a drawing, or a design, or indeed any other thing, and declares that "It's a classic", there are three stages in its existence: the past, the present and the future. Such a work is deemed "a classic" when it transcends these three stages of actual time, that is to say, when it no longer exists in the actual period with material aesthetic or moral values where it is not longer affected by the passage of hours, the seasons and the years. To be classic is both universal and timeless.
