Time Exists Only in the Mind

Time exists only in the mind.

Causality, fate, destiny, determination, determinism, beginnings and ends, forever, never, eternity. All fixations with time.

Time is becoming a slave to an instrument.

Time cannot be measured without an instrument.

Time is contrasting memories.

The obsession with time can be witnessed by the amount of clocks and calendars used. Time cannot be destroyed as it never existed.

The idea of time is used to coordinate efforts usually there are those who claim power as being the keeper in time. Those who employ are often obsessed with time.

Productivity is also a fixation on time.

The cure for time is amnesia. Time disappears when everything is forgotten. There is no physical time. It is just an arbitrary calibration of memories.  One needs points of reference, so they claim.

Without time there is no causality. Causality is a euphemism for blame.
efficiency. Agendas, plans, goals.. again time.

The tool and time.

Time was a byproduct of the tool. When man began to imagine how a thing will make a job easier. To-do lists are also time.

Beware of those speaking of destiny as they wish to impose time upon others. Without time man would have become civilized.

Without memory there is no time.

Thinking is contrasting memories hoping to predict the next event.
Science is a field to justify time.

Is time a good conceptual tool?

Can we live without the time concept?

Probably not in this industrial society. Fixated on clocks, calendars, what “occasion” it is. While time may seem to give us order, it also enslaves us.

The idea of time disassociates us from the immediate. From what is in front of us.
One can not be engaged in time and interact with what surrounds us.
Thus thinking, time, makes us all lose connectivity with the environment around us.

I don’t recognize dates. All these stupid occasion when we are imposed some sort of token gesture to maintain the “civil” lie. The text can alienating.

No more to do lists!

Bills and the government compels us to fixate with time. Deadlines. Those who love deadlines want control. Over themselves. Over others.

Love is connection, not associated with time.
We share memories.
Are memories bad?
Language is a conceptual tool that has become useful in communications, surely that can’t be bad.
Words are representation.
Consequences. Everything with a beginning has consequences, the end.
Think of the consequences. Live in fear.

Time can create anxiety.
Time management is a joke.
Time as a coordinating standard. Who controls that standard? The calendar? The clock?

What is stopped being, after I said it.
Existence is man’s fixation at immortality.

Time in the mind
There’s no other kind,
Instrument calibrated arbitrarily
Reason with no time vanishes
Can’t sense it
Can’t taste it
Can only think it

  1. This is great!!! It brought me back to a book I read…Einsteins dreams…I have a link for you…


    As for your visions you depict in these words…you my friend are very talented…your words speak a volume of language that is knowledge to most

    Peace and blessings to you

  2. Thanks for your kind comments and the link.

    “Within each world live people who make decisions and choices based on how they perceive time.” (from url above)

    A fascinating observation, and very relevant to what I wish to express.. although I argue that time isn’t perceived but constructed, similarly to how time “appears” to run faster as we get older as we have more memories to contrast and “calibrate” the instrument, which in that case is the mind/brain.


  3. Amazing. I was just writing about time today on my blog and now I find you have already got there ahead of me 🙂 Mine was a stream of consciousness and I guess I was tapping into what you had already said. Thankyou for setting up the resonance for me to connect with. Just emphasises how connected we all really are – and not just through our blogs!! Enreal and I meet for a coffee on the mental plane and I think you must be there too 🙂 Time means nothing – we can all tap in at will to life and love and the limited version of truth we can perceive. Time is a human construct that only has meaning because we give it such.

  4. Thanks zenuria, and I am also glad we’ve achieved such resonance. I do believe we are contributing to the cultural discourse through our blogs to each other, and whoever else stumbles along to our expressions. 🙂

    My husband and I care-take my mother of 79. Strokes and the aging process have messed with her memory and her ability to sequence events. Ask her how long ago she did something and she will not know. I have been with family and heard her ask the same question 8 times, each time with a total lack of awareness, as if just as excited or curious as the first time she asked. Yes, time is in the mind.

  6. Memory can be a blessing or a burden depending on the context, and in your mother’s case, I’m sure it can be disorienting and challenging for her and both of you taking care of her.

    I saw a bitter-sweet film dealing with memory loss and its effects on the person and their loved ones. Its called “Away From Her”, and I highly recommend it: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0491747/

    Best wishes for all of you.
