If Time is Relative… Can We Make it Stop With Our Minds? … Clocked It.

Standard

If a wristwatch is called a wristwatch. . It implies you can watch time. As does a clock, being named so implies that you can ‘clock’ time. And if you can watch and clock time as such, this must use a lot of energy.. For surely it takes a lot of concentration to watch the entire world changing all of the time?

What is ‘time’? How did it come to be what it is today? Different cultures embraced different concepts of time, and arranged their calendars as so. Some concentrated heavily on planetary movements and lunar cycles.

Our set up of 24 hours in a day… did it just naturally come to be? Or was it strategically put in place to create an ideal in, just one example,  an economical sense?

‘Science’ tells us that time is relative. We understand this as we have all experienced time. It only exists in as far as the subjective experience exists. Einstein gifted this to us with his theory of special relativity.

Even Google’s measurement of one year, 365 days, isn’t actually a whole round 365! It’s actually equal to..

We all know the saying,  “time flies when you’re having fun,” right? When you’re truly enjoying the moment you’re in, living in the present and directing all your awareness to one central, definitive moment (and the next moment, and the next, and the next..), then the concept of time ceases to exist. And only does it reintroduce itself when the said experience ends, or you’re supposed to be “somewhere else” by a certain ‘time’.

That’s why we clock watch at a boring place, like a lame job, for example. And the more you look at the clock, the more time literally feels like it’s not moving. It appears to come to a halt, ceasing to exist!

So imagine if we all lived in a world where ‘time’ didn’t exist as a physical experience at all. Everybody’s actual earthly experience would be far higher… up in the air, as it were.

There are lots of ways for humans to experience time. I personally feel our 7 day week doesn’t work. Definitely not any more. The pressure to work 40 out of 168 hours in a week. If you get enough sleep every night, you’re using up another 56 hours a week.  That leaves 72 hours to actually enjoy life (not including getting sustenance). Can you imagine how fast those 72 hours go, in comparison to the rest?! Especially the ones where you’re bored out of your face. Relative to the 40 working hours,  those 72 will be probably be gone in the blink of an eye.

I’d even propose a mix up of day/night activities/sleeping patterns. For health’s sake.. you know. But that’s another subject.

P.S. if it’s true time is speeding up, as many people of religous faith believe (and those that say every new year “that year went faster than ever”), will it soon be too fast for us as humans to comprehend? And what happens to our bodies and our consciousness at this point?!

I’ll depart at this point. Ramblings can only go so far before they’re lost to the vacuum of space. 😄

Namaste my good people, peace the world over and goodnight.

  1. Time, as we know it, must be a 3D “parameter” as they say! I used to love my watches but lately I started to forget putting my watch on when going out. It’s as if my Higher Self doesn’t want me to bother with time anymore!!

    • Spacetime. It’s just fascinating. Recently I’ve been timing ‘myself’ instead of following a clock.. I seem to end up with more time? Personally I don’t enjoy the restrictions of Earthtime made by clocks. But I guess ‘living in the moment’ resolves that 😉

      • If you think of it, time does put you in a fearful situation. Because the concept of wanting to have something or get something done by a deadline makes you impatient out of fear of not getting it at all, if you know what I mean.

      • It’s true. If you’re always concerned with what’s happening in the next moment, you miss the one you’re in. It happens a lot when I have to be somewhere at a certain time, even if it’s hours away, it will still somehow find a way of being part of my present ! thoughts
