time muse-ings

The various thoughts, and Simon’s poem, posted concerning time in “a temporal tidbit’ are so delightful to me that I’m giving them a posting all their own. Thanks to everyone who visits my blogcasa–those who leave their cybertracks via comments and those who remain invisible. All are much appreciated.


“For us convinced physicists, the distinction between past, present, and future is only an illusion, albeit a persistent one.” ~Albert Einstein

What happens when we let go of the human construct of “time”?

    Given how dependent people are upon their mobile devices to maintain contact with…a connecting in time behavior…such a suspension would no doubt create utter chaos for many.

    Thought, linear thought, ceases As time ceases. Identity of self Ceases Story ceases Focus ceases. Human ceases But Perhaps not Awareness Perhaps not Amusement. Centre Becomes circumference Ever expanding Or eternal A flower Blooming On a prairie Containing galaxies. Time Being nothing But a measure Of space. Space, The time it takes Between The reaching of edges.

    I’m counting on Einstein and the illusion of time ;)– I like the idea that from birth to death is like a piece of string in time – always there in the space time continuum and able to be accessed at any point if given the right conditions; and maybe the strings of life can overlap and we can jump between strings and vice versa (or something like that – hahaha) – what I am sure of is that humans are wrong about most things.

    Time is an illusion built by men to create the basis to a society of order in every possible way. But I do understand that a lot of people would get vertigo just by the thought of that. :D

    Freedom; eat when you feel hungry, sleep when tired, work when you are full of energy or inspiration, no more dead-line, no more burn-out.

    What happens when we let go of the human construct of “time”? According to Einstein, everything happens at once.

    Certainly chaos would follow, however, once everyone calmed down, we might find we are present in each moment more instead of deferring to some other point in the future.

    Concept of time, and especially time passing, is one of those human pervasive beliefs that it is pretty impossible to conceive not being at the forefront of our experience. Since the invention of the clock and pocket watch, and the standardisation of time into zones, all we do is watch time passing. Calibration, ticking away, what has gone, what will never return, spent, wasted, time to go…a construct of cities and their homogenising influence, sending out their missionary trains across the slow, sleepy, unregulated lands. Times of arrival, times of departure. A very urban construct! Imbolc Blessings to all ( a time based on feasts and parties seems a much more organic thing!)

      Moving with the sun, moon and seasons seems much healthier in the long run. Hello Simon the bard of trees.
