The word time is one of the most used words in our vocabulary. We are bound by time. The clock rules our existence and demarcates our days. From birth to death, we enter a world dominated by time and constrained by its merciless progress. Pre-schools, schools, buses, trains, business, offices, meetings, schedules, events, marriages and even funerals, to name but a few, are bound by time. Being late is considered a cardinal blunder and even a sin. We are like hamsters on a treadmill, unable to get off. It is interesting then to imagine for a moment what a world without slavery to time might be like. What would it have been like when night and day were man’s boundaries; when his stomach determined the moment to eat and when the seasons formed the rhythm of his existence? The god who divided the day into its hours and forced mankind to adhere to the patterns of time was a powerful god indeed.
