Right after I started with this blog I posted about 'time' which isn't linear nor cyclical or modular because those qualities presume that time is something measurable which it isn't and thus 'time' simply defies our conventions. I still think so but meanwhile I have given the phenomenon we call time some more thought and want to share.
Lets first look at the commonly accepted definition of time:
the INDEFINITE continued progress of existence and EVENTS in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole.
Notice how event is part of the definition. What EVENT? YOUR LIFE! So time is an event that you 'create' and many yous do the same, meaning countless events happening in....ONE SPACE, AN ABSOLUTE. And what about INDEFINITE? This means unknown and vague and therefore 'impure' and not an ABSOLUTE, finite and pure. Think: at least binary....good/evil....get it?
Today this sentence came my way and it relates to the topic of time:
“Love and time; those are the only two things in all the world and all of life that cannot be bought, but only spent.”
