Time won’t save your soul

November 13, 2010 Leave a comment

Time:  Flying, racing, buying, saving, making, wasting, and the murderous killing.

Much of our life and attention seems devoted to this construct of Time.  The sage, watchdog figure of Father Time meticulously monitoring the spilling sands in the hourglass of life, until the last grain has tumbled.  Life oft seems spent in a frenetic scramble to preserve this most valuable of commodities.

But is Time a worthwhile concern?  Much of Western culture has been shaped around this preoccupation with time.   Complex methods and devices have been devised by which to preserve our precious time.  But how much extra time do these wonders create?  Shouldn’t it then seem, given all the gadgetry, that there is an abundance of time to do with what we want?

How much time is spent cajoling the very technology meant to ease time constraints into doing what we ask?  Has paper and pencil ever refused to release to you your own essay moments before it’s due?
