Time is an Illusion
« on: January 02, 2007, 02:58:32 am »
It really is. Every December 31st, we celebrate something, that doesnt exist! Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years. None of it is real. None of it has ever been real. Think about it, there isn't just some great big clock somewhere that is the grandmaster time. So we are all a little insane if we celebrate 'new years' because well, it doesnt exist! It's not there! Never was, never will be. We invented time to...well keep track of things. So you aren't standing on the street corner with a pal and say, "Hey, I'll meet you tomorrow. When the sun...is over there!" and then point up at the sky. We have time and calenders basicaly to say "Look at what I have to do today!!" I mean really. We are all a little crazy. I know it sounds like I copied this, or I got it from a website, but I didn't. Just a friendly opinion. Thank you for your time. And have a happy....whatever just be happy.

Its a way of keeping track of things. How would you get organized if there was no time to go by?

Time is that which is measured by a clock. ;)

The New Year is imaginary just as you say. Many cultures don't even celebrate the new year on dec the 31th.

Almost same thing with Christmas. We don't celebrate the birth of Jesus, we celebrate some ancient god of the sun. They just put christmas at that time because it was convenient.
Heckling is an art, and game hacking a science.

Didnt know that. Very cool.


You said time is something that is measured by a clock. Why are there 60 minutes in an hour. Why dont they make a day last 12 hours and have each minute last 120 seconds? (not sure if that works out mathematically, but the point is still there)

Also, a new year is an oppertunity to set new goals "I will play on stage alot this year" is one of my goals. I couldnt make this goal if I didnt have time to work with. Time creates the frame I am working within.

True, time was made by man to be more convenient. And no, there is not some grandmaster clock somewhere. and Yes i dont know where im going with this.
Enjoy your creative game-play, whatever that may include.

I forget how it came to be 24 hours....but the hours/mis/secs are also used in global maps as a "standard".
I am sure that it has to do with some division of the day in some way like the division of days make one trip around the Sun....it all dates back to early agriculture in some way.
