  1. Hello Paul,


    I think I can clear up the controversy once and for all. The choice of harp for past and vibraphone for future makes sense for at least two reasons.


    First, the harp was created over 5500 years ago (practically the beginning of time), while the vibraphone was invented in the 1920s. This means that, for most of human history, harps were in the past and vibes were in the future1.


    Second, and even more significantly, the words themselves attest to their proper meaning: harpast; vibraphuture. Q.E.D.


    1Granted, vibes are now technically in the past, but the moon is sometimes visible during the day and yet we still think sun—day, moon—night.
