I can't imagine.
I'm permanently present
where consciousness has
no tolerance for dreaming.
Imagine a pendulum, if you
can, that is. The arc has three
dimensions, past present and
Both the Tick and the Tock are
differentiated by their distinct
sound difference, the latter being
past, of course.
But note that the present is not
referenced and that is because
one needs no reminding of what
is essentially always now.
Well, I say that as one who does not
regret the past nor do I want to control
Why would I even want to when I am
perfectly content to live in the hypnosis
of an oscillation suspended from a fulcrum
where the opposing forces of past/future
are maintained by a state of perpendicular
equilibrium and that can only ever be
achieved by not being a slave to time,
routine, repetition or expectation.
I do not wear a watch, I don't own a cell-
phone nor a micro wave, so I am not a
Pavlov type person, "now needs no alarm".
That is why time bombs are always set to
explode in the future, whereas a letter bomb
could be delayed and arrive late or in the
past, virtually, so, now is the safest place to be.
If you find yourself at the wrong stop, then
you were absentminded and passed present.
Be careful, there may be a package there,
ticking ticking not tocking, don't open it.
It is not a gift.
