alI haven't uploaded a post this month, or this year, but that got me thinking, why do we measure time? Is it purely to help organise our lives? We live in minutes, in hours, in days, in weeks, in months, in years. Why? Before calendars, or clocks we never had the organisation in our lives, we followed the suns fall, and the hope that it would rise the next day.
there are an infinite ways to measure time, the sun, the clock, how fast water freezes, how fast it moves, how fast it takes to evaporate, I could go on.
People say there is no time in space, I wonder if they know how wrong they are, for there is time in space, there just inst a clear way to measure it, you can use the rotation of the sun, or you could use the lifespan of a human to measure time.
Time is a constraint on our life, we often find we don't have enough, and this is the case for the amount of time we have in a day, or a lifespan. I always find that time runs out quick during the day, even though I've hardly progressed in any of the days activities, but the week would drag on. Yet at the end of the year, it feels as if you breezed through it, and you wonder where the time went. Is our mind playing tricks on us? Does it make us forget the boring parts of the day or year which makes us feel as if the year goes quick. I've read (can't remember where) that the brain will process fun times as longer than they actually were and dull, boring times quick.
Time is always on my mind. How long do I have? I often ask myself. I don't have a watch, but I check my phone a lot, for the time, (which makes me think I should get a watch). I need to manage my time or I will lose track of things, I will miss meetings or deadlines. Without a measurement of time our lives would be chaotic.
I set out, writing this, to convince anyone whom may be reading, that making sure we keep track of time, can be bad for us, for humans. But I've convinced myself that we without it hell will break loose. Maybe there is a truth from what i'm rambling about, but probably not. When I get time (pun intended) I will look into Time more and how it works and how we perceive it. Is there a way to slow down or speed up time? Lets find out.
