We can’t function without the concept of time, it’s all-encompassing, embedded in every aspect of our lives. But we can try harnessing it like a tool.
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” -Bruce Lee
The way we perceive and use time is the most fundamental intangible element in intelligent life. In terms of physics, “time” doesn’t actually exist yet it is vividly recognized by our consciousness.
Everything in our visible universe decay as a course of natural, time-based processes. Not just the aging of life or the wear and tear of inanimate things, but also each and every event that occurs.
We experience the succession of these events chronologically, every moment of our existence from event to event and action to action. While time doesn’t exist, it’s actually an integral part of our being.
Time runs our lives. Time gives our lives direction. Time lets us plan and strategize what to do in the next 30 seconds, the next 30 days, the next 30 years and so on. We need this to make our lives functional.
In other words, we are time’s bitch.
