We don’t think enough about something that has such control over the way we deal with our lives – and how ‘time’ varies with people we interact with in a global community.
They say that time heals, but if time heals it’s by transporting us to somewhere else – sometime else – where things are different. It’s not time that changed, it’s our environment – internal and external – that changes, and we mark it in our own versions of time.
And if we remove time altogether, we flatten our lives into a summary of all the interactions we’ve had and how we’ve interacted with it.
The living call this death.
