Time

What time do i have to go to work/school? That means i must wake up at this time. Get ready by this time. I am able to eat lunch around this time. The movie starts at this time. And i must go to bed by this time so i can be able to count time again the next day.

It is the only thing that prevents us from doing what we wanna do. We have only a minimal time to live, and most of that is used working, schooling, sleeping, eating, ect. Animals (besides from a ‘biological clock’) dont worry about time. They live their lives without worrying about what time to go to sleep, eat, or whatever. They just do it whenever they feel like it. Can human civilization function like this? Are we able to just live our lives independently from each other or do we need “order, rule, regulation” (tool- silival third eye) to live efficiently? Would we have to regress our whole society? Ive been thinking about some Utopian ideas working with freedom and i figured out we are slave to time more than anything else in the world.

Im actually proposing a question of discussion if you’d be willing to leave a answer in the form of a comment:

Is it possible to live lives without the existence of time? Would we have to get rid of ‘work’ and ‘school’ in this scenario for it to work out?

Perfection

Ive been thinking about ‘perfection’. Im not talking about physical perfection, although this rant will apply in just the same way. Im a really self-aware person- I analyze all of my actions, thoughts, and beliefs. I try myself to become the best person i can be. I strive to become a person that I would want to be around. I have many flaws and try to fix as much as i can, but i would not call myself a perfectionist. But i noticed some problems in this activity. When you try to fix yourself, you may end up breaking yourself in other ways. A complete perfectionist would end up psychoanalyzing themself to the point where they will look for problems to make sure nobody finds them. They may even create them ( a mental version of Body Dismorphic Disorder). It will also lead to a low self esteem. Not only because of the “Where is my problem attitude” but also because not all problems can be fixed. Some of our flaws make us exceptionally different. A flaw for one may be a gem for another. ie: A needy person (flaw) may seem absolutely wonderful for someone who has never had much attention. Remember “Perfection only exists as an idea” Socrates on circles (fun fact: thats where A Perfect Circle the band name, came from). Nature is not even perfect. Heres the moral: Fix your flaws if you notice them and CAN, otherwise, accept them.

”There’s a dark jungle next to the village. People who go into it never return. The villagers fear the jungle. Then one day a man with a torch goes in, the villagers scream at him to not, but he does anyway. He returns the next night, crawling back, bleeding to death, claw marks on his back. With his last breath he says ‘Within the Jungle lives a Tiger, who is twelve feet long, obsidian claws, and has fire in its eyes…but it is just a Tiger and it bleeds.’ After that he dies. The villagers no longer fear the jungle after that day. Oh, it’s still scary and they take precautions from the huge Tiger…but it’s just a Tiger. No longer is it Unknown or Shadows, perhaps one day someone will go and kill the Tiger…but there is no need for pointless fear.”
