Summary On-going contestations to establish the hegemonic narrative of Tibet's history rest on the shared assumption that a true narrative, or history's motion, exists. This essay suggests that history's motion is a continuing legacy of Newton's concepts of absolute time and space, even while the current disputes over Tibet's history point to the limitations of these concepts in practice.
