Sorry for the lack of posts in the last couple of weeks.  All is well, but both the desire and the opportunity to blog stuff have been lacking.  More on that another time.

Anyways ...

Found this on Reddit and thought I would share.

Time doesn't exist. Clocks exist. Time is just an agreed construct. We have taken distance (one rotation of the earth, and one orbit of the sun), divided it up into segments, and given those segments labels. While it has its uses, we have been programmed to live our lives by this construct as if it were real. We have confused our shared construct with something that is tangible and have thus become its slave. 

I have taken to leaving my watch on the bedside table recently.  If I need to know the exact time (for getting to work on time, mainly), I look for a clock. But for most of the day, and night, I seem to get by quite well without knowing exactly how many minutes before or after the hour it is. I eat, I sleep, I work, and so far the world hasn't ended. Time can be a tyrant.
