And Time Marches On

Let's be philosophical for just a minute- time exists because we agree it does. 'We', being the collective consciousness of communication and the written word. Dolphins, though extremely intelligent, do not subscribe to time. Ants, as a sentient group of envious proportions, do not act on the passing of time's ticks. Reality stars do not recognize time.


Of course, without  a general agreement on the elements of time, we wouldn't know when to sit down and watch the Biggest Loser. Or Alf reruns.

To be honest, it makes me sad. I guess you could say it falls under the ideas of Leviathan, that we must agree to give up a certain amount of our personal freedom in order to participate in a societal group.

Pity.
Happy New Year.
