Time.

Perceiving time through the lens of culture and technology

“I’m so sorry, could I just steal a few minutes of your time?”

Time is money

Time as constructed

When we say that time is running away from us, we perceive it as something concrete. If it runs away from us, we need to chase it, but if it doesn’t actually exist in a physical form, how can we ever catch up? And time has a funny way of speeding up the more we try to do. The more we run, the further away moves the finish line. We will never cross it.

Cultural perceptions of time

But if time is so malleable and fluid, why do we feel so encaged by the minutes and the hours of our day?

Speaking present

Being mindful

Be still, yet still moving

Stillness is what creates love,

Movement is what creates life,

To be still,

Yet still moving –

That is everything!
