I have been fascinated by time for as long as I can remember. Clocks amaze me,
I even saved up my money to buy one of the first LED digital watches wen I was in High school.
I keep my clocks set to national bureau of standards time. I have an atomic clock in my living room. I even own a radio that only tunes the signal from WWV (Radio Shack Time Cube). I have the phone number for WWV programmed into my phone.
I work in a business that is based on schedules. Contracts have time clauses in them.
My favorite sport for many years was Time Speed Distance road rallying that requires you to arrive at a hidden checkpoint at exactly the correct time. Now I enjoy endurance racing that requires me to set a driver schedule based on time before the race and I analyze laps times after the race in a massive spread sheet. I am very familiar with all the math functions and time formats in excel.
My whole identity revolves around time.
Now I learn that time is an illusion! No wonder it is so hard to measure time. Measuring first three dimensions is easy. Just use a ruler. But measuring time requires massively complicated devices.
How do I reconcile this concept of no time when my whole identity is wrapped up in measuring time?
My new meditation is: there is no past there is no future, there is only now. * I am having a hard time with this concept.
- Thanks to Sunny at Personal Mastery Quest for that meditation.
