Tick-Tock, the Merry-Go-Round of the Clock (3)

Time...just when you think you have your daily routine packed down to a science, its that time of the year when the clocks are turned back or forward, by one hour, bringing us to a halt, adding temporary confusion to our pre-programmed minds. Given a short interval to readjust, the ignition gets turned on, wheels start whirling and once again we find ourselves falling back into the same routine of riding the Merry-Go-Round of the Clock. Let's face it we are slaves to time.

How often we will hear someone say "I'm so stressed out....there are not enough hours in the day, to do all the things which I have to do." Remember the time schedules that we allow to govern our days and nights are of our own doing. We have no one to blame but ourselves. "We are always shoving life around, trying to fit as much as we can, according to our time schedule as it relates to our concept of space."

What is space? An interval or area between or within points or objects."

"What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know. ~Saint Augustine.

You got that right Saint Augustine...I can't even explain it myself. Let's hear what Jack E. Addington has to say, so that we may be enlightened on this subject.

"For time to be understood, we must realize that time depends upon space. Space is the measurement. It is through space that we are able to measure time; time is the interval that it takes for an object to move from one point in space to another point in space. The concepts of time and space are essential to each other; each is dependent upon the relative value of the other." (J.E.A.)
