In the Year 2025 if Im still alive..
When I took this photo to me it represented the moving of time, for everything exists in time, the wind, the rain, the Sun, the darkness. I called it Restless Wind, but now Ive decided to rename it--Restless Winds of Time--
I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up...do any of us? I know what I want to DO but how to attain that freedom has me perplexed. I always thought there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow...lol --NO Im only kidding,-- I know how hard work pays off...but it also robs you of those hours that make up a lifespan...in the end Memories of our TIME is actually all we have--nano-seconds, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months ---look at all the ways we measure time!
What if we didnt? What if I told you to forget what day it is, what hour and the date of your birth, and to stop thinking of time as having a beginning and an ending...could you do it?
Probably not. We are so programmed to think in increments of time that it would take many sessions with a hypnotherapist to erase that from our psyche.
If you had an infant and you lived in the back country away from civilization and you had no calendar or time piece at hand and said nothing of keeping, killing, or making time...that child would still develop a sense of time....with the rising of the Sun, and the waning and waxing of the Moon, time would show itself and become a part of that child's cycle with the Earth.
From as far back as we can find artifact and writings, humans have been very preoccupied with keeping time and chronicling events of their lifespan. (Just look at the Blogs we keep to chronicle events of our own lives=time) Huge pyramids were built so as no one should forget Pharaohs who were viewed as Gods or declared themselves to be Gods...huge temples to bear witness to one individuals time=life spent here on planet Earth...
The ancient Mayans, the Aztecs, the Incas all kept track of time in ways we dont understand but we do know it works perfectly, even today. In fact they were probably better time keepers than we are. Comparing a digital clock of our time to the Water Clocks of the ancient Egyptians and their Obelisks, and Sundials ---well there is no comparison...time keepers of that era will work even today, but would our time keeping machines be working in 2000 years? Did you know that 1.78 people die every second...I used this life span calculator to calculate my death year -- 2025..so that means I have roughly at this moment 504,575,759 seconds left to figure out what I want to take with me in the year 2025...will there be a temple to remind the ones yet to come that I was here?
Only stone can stand the test of time, thats why the Ancients kept their legacies and ideas on stone...a DVD can not withstand the test of time, neither will a book, a painting, a carving of wood, but put it in Stone and it will stand up to time.
I am watching a DVD series I picked up at my library called Secrets or Archeology...and its been fascinating to me since one of my hobbies is Ancient Civilizations and Culture and Im learning what to look for in the future
by looking at the past. I just used up 1,000 of those seconds writing this blog...
Maybe I want to be Indiana Jones, when the clock strikes 000,000,001--.
