Living a life without Time

In today’s society, we are all bound by time as we work around the clock to gain a better quality of life. We sometimes concentrate so much on time that we start forgetting about the sense of time and how we should all prioritise our life events. This ideology is not at all efficient to use or to follow, however, it is something different that is interesting to think off. For a moment I sat down and thought to myself (even how crazy it sounds), how would it be to live without looking at the time or knowing the sense of time? Most people will say impossible and for various reasons:

  • You could not handle a job without knowing when to start, take a break and finish
  • Most if not all people work on the clock
  • You need to work with people that will work with the sense of time which will make it impossible to synchronize.
  • Your family has to follow the same scheme and lifestyle
  • The world simply does not work that way

There are many more reasons that we can mention but with the ones above you get a sort of idea as to why most people would say it is impossible. As we have gotten those reasons out of the way let’s talk more about the change in the lifestyle itself. A person is grown up in a certain lifestyle, therefore, they are comfortable in that lifestyle without being disturbed by unknown factors or by taking away familiar factors such as time. Therefore this would be much easier to get used to as a child. Even at a young age, it is quite a challenge to grasp the sense of time without constantly looking at a watch. So we can start growing the child in a lifestyle that does not take time into account.

Many questions arise such as how will the child be schooled? It is true that this ideology makes most things out of the box as being organised requires a well-timed schedule that works around the clock rather than against it. Try to think of how your weekend works, for most people it is a relaxed 2 days in which you can do whatever you want whenever as you are not obligated by anything (this does not take in consideration all people) I know that at the same time we all have some sort of responsibility that we need to follow up.

This is more of a democratic approach to such an ideology, as you try to be freer in your own world, trying to make your own sense and create a sort of unique lifestyle that does not comply to the society and the rest around you. If you let yourself influenced by society you will be lead by society and their rulings. The most important thing about this ideology is that this would allow us to experience life more for what it is, to be happy that we are alive and well. To have time to enjoy the wonderful things in life rather than being chained in the office from 9 AM to 5 PM.
