“Time crumbles things; everything grows old under the power of Time and is forgotten through the lapse of Time.” ― Aristotle.


It is often said that Time is our greatest enemy. Many people encounter difficulties when undertaking activities and attempting to complete tasks within the confines of Time. Maybe this is due to its rigid nature, but most people struggle to find time to experience happiness, prosperity, fulfillment and form/maintain meaningful relationships with others during their daily lives. Whether it's 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, 10 years per decade, 10 decades per century, or 10 centuries per millennium, our fixation with calculating time finitely within its infinite framework is problematic.

“Time heals things; everything develops under the power of Time and is treasured through the lapse of Time.” ― Unknown.


Time is our greatest saviour. Time not only allows us to form and recall pleasant memories, it also aids us by making bad memories harder to remember. The longer we know somebody, the stronger our emotions towards them will be. The longer we possess a material item, the more sentimental the value of the item will be. Time generally heals physical injuries and mental wounds over a set duration.


Which perspective do you associate with more strongly?

My views on Time:

  • Time is one of the most powerful conceptions to exist.
  • Humans need to adapt to Time, not vice versa.
  • Unhappiness with Time stems from our inability to adjust to its constraints.
  • We often blame Time whenever the opportunity arises, but rarely praise it.
  • The Gregorian calender struggles to aid humans in utilising their time effectively.

Time is the flame which consumes our lives.

Time flies like an arrow.
Fruit flies like bananas.

Time is just a word that means the current configuration is changing and moving.
The present appearance always looks different.

How can the configuration be "current" when it is continuously changing, though?

Time as a side-effect. You live and time just seems to have happened. Is spirit out of time? If something is eternal, is it affected by time then?
