Getting existential

I may have mentioned this before but have you ever stopped to think of the big issues?
Not just what is happening within your own little life pattern but the really big picture?
For instance: Time.
It dawned on me today that there is really no such thing as time. This is just a concept we invented for our little ball of mud.
Time is just a concept we invented so we could all be at the same place at the same moment.
Time is just something we invented so we could know how hot an item was and when it would be cool enough to eat.
Time is not real.
Things just “are”.
It takes 365 days for our ball of mud to orbit around the big white star in the center of our galaxy.
That’s not time that just is a fact
Yet we use this orbiting pattern to mark what we do and how we do it.
But that isnt enough so we broke it down further
The planet is spinning and spinning as it rotates around this furnace and there are times when we can see the star and not see the star.
That’s not time that just is a fact
Then we decided that wasn’t enough so we went further and noted that when the big burning star is moving across the sky it takes a certain amount of time for it to go from point a to point b and point c
That’s not time that just is a fact
And it still wasn’t enough so we broke it down even further.
And further.
Now everything we do is marked by time.
Now the concept we have invented has over taken its creators and now controls their lives and actions.
The monster has left the laboratory and is now governing over the entire serfdom.

As I have told my offspring
NEVER, ever wish for time to hurry up. Never wish for time to speed up. Whenever you abuse the time you have like that it starts firing on all cylinders and never slows down again. Whatever you want to happen will happen when it happens. Enjoy what you have when you have it but never wish time away because there is no way of ever getting it back.

Ok done rambling for now. Gotta go back to my frettin.
