What would it be like?

Right now I'm waiting for the time to pass...
I wonder what it would be like, if we didn't have any time to call time, if we all just went on doing the things we wanted without thinking about which time it is?
Shops would be open at any time, as well as closed.
We would call our friends in the middle of the night, walk to work whenever we wanted and decide to quit when we felt bored.
We would eat a full dinner in the morning then go to bed and wake up in the afternoon when we would decide that maybe now would be a good time for breakfast.

well, that's a very interesting question you've brought up - what would things be liek without time... time is that which keeps events from all happening at once, so I assume you do not actually mean "no time", but rather "no fixed measurements of time, with fixed ideas about what can and cannot be done in various segments of those measurements", yes?

...I mean, it is possible for a human mind to experience a truely timeless reality (usually described as a "transcendent state" or a "religious experience" or a "freak out", or "getting hit with the cosmic whammy bar", etc... personally it has scared the crap out of me those few times I've popped my head up into that reality, but since I'm going to be heading that direction when I croak, I figure I might as well be doing as much as I can to get ready for it (which, of course, generally makes my life that much better as I'm living it, as a side benefit)...


...oh, btw, I've had a hell of a week - started out monday with severe tooth pain, that kept getting worse and worse until finally today I had to borrow money to go to the dentist and get a tooth pulled... I went to the dental school clinic, since it's about half-price of commercial dentists, but it takes longer, so I got there at about 8:40 this morning, left about noon, was back shorty after 13:00 and left again (minus the tooth) at about 16:15 or so... what a great day! (oh god) it's about 17:00 right now...

well, once the novocain wears off, the jaws going to hurt all weekend still, but it'll be a healing pain instead of an infection pain, at least...

hi, how are you?

Exactly what I meant, yeah. I guess there would be a lot of problems before everybody gets used to be the "boss of their own time" and the clashes between people that has one another way of thinking about when or where they want to do stuff. I think it would be rather interesting.

Damn, what an horrible day to start the week with!!! A whole day at the dentist, man I would have been totally exhausted, but I hope they did a good job and I guess they did, it sounds like a real thorough examination, hm, I wonder where there other students standing and watching too, while you were in the dentist-chair?
I hope you wont have to go back there soon, but a good thing that school is existing, it's expensive as hell with dentists here too.
I hope the pain wont be too bad and it wears off very soon and that you have enough painkillers at home!
Heh, thanks, it's allright, a bit stressed of all the things I'm not doing, and I am thinking a good way to not be so stressed would be to actually start to do them. However I am sort of in a tired-state of mode here. It doesn't help that I wake up at 5.30 every morning either, but my brain says I had enough sleep, so I get up, then I spend the afternoon and night like I was in a very tedious fog, so tired that I could stand and sleep in a cornet. It's kinda annoying.
Besides that I'm okay.

that's funny... for the past few months, I've been getting up with the sun and going to work early (get in before 7:30 and leave at 3:30 or earlier)... of course, I'm usually going to bed at 21:00 but seem to be getting maybe an hour's longer sleep that I used to... besides, I'm modivated by the fact that it's nice and quiet when no one is in yet and I can get work done without being bothered for an hour or more...

Yeah, same here, it is nice to be up when not so many are up and running around. It's calmer and it feels like thinking is much easier.

you know, I think there's something to that idea... it's also why it's easier for me to work at night: most people are asleep and their busy-robot chattering brains have shut down and there's not as much numbskull-buzzing noise in the air...

That's one thing that's for sure! Maybe it's like this,that they aren't taken up so much available space which means we others get a lot more of it. :)

certainly... since, ultimately, we are all the same being, it makes sense that we share the bubble of mind around the world, especially in your local neighborhood...

Hehe, exactly...
