Time is not an illusion. It’s an object with physical size.

Not a backdrop, an illusion or an emergent phenomenon, time has a physical size that can be measured in laboratories.

Finally got this stopwatch timer working! I just had to change a few lines of code in one of their examples and I got the proper digits to stop counting at "6". Now I just gotta write a blinky thing for it. Excited for this sculpture, pretty soon I gotta start bending- tight stuff with fancy glass

This is going to sound out there.

Sometimes I try to do nothing during my time off. Not meditate. Not relax. Just sit there and be as excruciatingly bored as possible.

Good time goes by so fast.

#Bored #time?

That lasts. It doesn't leave me feeling cheated that I am back at work again. That I have a limit. That I am not biologically immortal.

The only time my life doesn't feel like it's slipping away is when I am so bored.

I can't decide if I am enlightened or just broken.

Seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, decades, and even a century. As aging humans, we can experience this, imagine this, and to a certain extent, understand this. But how can we understand 1,000 years or one million years? What about 13.8 billion years of cosmic evolution?

I'm working on what will be an installation sometime in the future. It started as one small piece then expanded. I don't know when it will be ready to be the installation. I realise now it is, among other things, about time unrolling. Maybe that's why it at seems to change all the time. I have no idea where it will be installed shown. It is likely to be with two other friends who are Artists/Writers/Creators

The cheapest high-value gift you can give yourself, in 3 easy steps:

1. Look at your calendar for next week.
2. Carve out 30 minutes for yourself. Call it whatever you want.
3. Come up with 3 ways you will ensure that time is protected.

(And then do whatever you want with that time. It's safe, it's yours.)

We should destroy this time in the morning permanently and add 2 more hours before midnight.

Time is a concept we can alter. We know this because daylight savings time exists. In that sense we are gods. We awaken and the mortal world trembles.

Streetartwall. On an old brown exterior wall is sprayed / painted the side portrait of a woman. The woman brown medium-length hair that seems to blow in the wind. Her eyes are closed. Her face is drawn through with lines, as if she had been broken and glued again. The hair blows lightly in her face. Only fragments of her blue blouse are visible. Flowers created by the omission of painting, that is, the brown plaster underneath, partially cover the figure and make the mural look fragile.

Google has updated its street view of my city. The previous street view image of our home showed me leaning out the door talking to my mom. It was a glimpse back in time to look at our old address and see us there, many years younger. She was still working. My son was still alive. It was a very different stage in our lives.
Now it’s been updated with new imagery. Our old selves are gone. Our new home is still and quiet. My son’s vehicle is not here. Time has moved on without him.

I've come to the realization that having #fun is something that we "lose" as a child, not because we want to stop, but because we see everyone around us "not" having fun so we feel we must somehow fit in by also being bereft of fun.

Instead, I would say - as someone who's reached my 50's and still plays video games, reads sci-fi and fantasy, and writes novels and creates games, that having fun is probably one of the most precious and valuable uses of our time.

I have fallen victim to this corrupt way of thinking myself - that I have to be a 'grown up' and be 'serious' all the time.

Screw that.

If Covid has taught us anything, it is that #time is short. The purpose in life is not to see how many dollars you can get, or how high up in some business rank that will be worthless in the future, it's having fun experiences with friends and family. Building good memories, and trying to make your nearby world a bit better. #life #goals

Imagining aliens with a faster subjective experience of time looking at us and thinking we're some sort of slow geological process of a strange hydrocarbon filled planet.

Perhaps this is a solution to the Fermi paradox: we're just part of a rare group of living things that experiences time either too slow or too fast.

In his treatise On The Shortness of Life, Seneca sketches out an insightful perspective on temporality and human existence. For some, the past can remain a wonderful resource!

Good morning. 🍂🍂🍂

Weeks pass incredibly fast lately. Maybe it's true what they say about time, it flies when you're having fun.

I spend my mornings doing exactly what I'm doing right now. The rest of the day, I do whatever else I want to do or need to do. Yesterday, we bought two rose bushes and plan to pant them today, hurray. Picked up a couple more metal shepherd's hook so that I can deploy more hummingbird feeders. These will go inside the backyard near the east fence.

I just took a break to feed the dogs, I let them outside while I prepare their breakfast. Ben is funny, usually when I let them outside, he stops at the door and waits. I have to reach down and touch him before he goes out ... unless there are squirrels.

These are branches of Chinese tallow with red and yellow fall leaves.  The background is dark with random spots of blue, green, orange and pink light.  

The Chinese tallow is quite pretty, but it is an invasive species here in the United States.  I think that is true of Australia and India as well. It grows wild in the forest near my home.

@feditips I so wish it wasn't this way. It seems such a waste of everyone's valuable time. And I don't even bother searching Mastodon anymore, I know better to waste my time that way as well.

The history of Earth as the length of a human’s outstretched arm - representing 4.5 billion years of time.

At this scale, humans emerged so recently that we could be filed off from a microscopic slice at the very tip of a fingernail.

DEEP TIME: If the timeline of Earth were mapped onto the human arm, it would begin around the shoulder where the earth formed about 4.5 billion
years ago. Animals originated within the palm, but the myriad forms alive today exploded onto the scene around the first knuckle, in the Cambrian period.
Blocks along the fingers represent the periods that followed, such as the Jurassic (dinosaurs) and the Cenozoic. Humans evolved at a microscopic
slice at the tip of a fingernail. Infographic by Katie Scott from original article in Nautilus.

I'm going to keep referring to myself as 2006 #TIME Person of the Year on all of my accounts & there is not a thing you can do to stop me because it is technically accurate.

#Running friends, I have been racing for over 30 years. I graduated from the stop watch on a casio to a smart watch in 2011. Despite the tech, I have always just wrote my workouts in sharpie on the back of my hand. #OldSchool

Only this week have I had the opportunity to sit down and program in run workouts.

Oh my goodness, why didn't I do this ages ago!? #Time

The intervals will kick my ass but at least no more mid run math!

We need to reconsider the rules of judging incitement in the era of viral media.

Wikipedia says: "The two legal prongs that constitute incitement of imminent lawless action are as follows: Advocacy of force or criminal activity does not receive First Amendment protections if (1) the advocacy is directed to inciting or producing imminent lawless action, and (2) is likely to incite or produce such action."

However, time is twisty on the internet. It splits into pieces experienced differently by different viewers. It loops back and is re-experienced in a way that is intensifying. It holds still while others show up to see it later.

The standard cannot reasonably be whether action imminently follows the saying, but rather the viewing or the re-viewing, or else the action is both more potent as it becomes more invisible to law, most viewings being ultimately not in the moment but later.

Detractors will point to other acts of positive effect that likewise operate in this way. But such what-about-ism does not undo the truth of what I've said. There are two prongs of the incitement charge. The "imminent" standard is more complex in the modern world. But likely to yield bad action still matters.

Democrats and ESPECIALLY Democrat leaders do not stand up with bats or guns while making allegedly metaphorical or joking hints that violence is good or to be rewarded or forgiven. Democrats do not organize field trips of their fellows to comfort those who have taken up arms against democratic process, nor do they hint of medals or pardons.

But GOP leaders do. GOP egging on off violence lingers and gets replayed and distilled in ways they must be held accountable for.

We must not be made timid by claims that aggressive prosecution is unprecedented. It is the threat that is unprecedented. As with Climate Change, we must be clear that proportional responses to unprecedented challenges are not radical but simply necessary. Inaction in the face of unprecedented threat is radical.

In this case, social media presents new threats to democratic society by making incitement more potent. We must not let this increased potency, through its complex delivery mechanisms, become a defense against the crime itself. It is not radical but common sense to see the effect it is having. If we do not prosecute ever-more-routine incitements by GOP leaders, it will be their roadmap to dismantling democracy and civilized society.

What's a useful way to get a inter-process time source?

My goal is to get the time when a packet was received in one process, and then once it was sent over to a second process I want to be able to know how long ago it was originally received.

Using the wallclock for that seems not very useful because that can be adjusted.

Is it, for example, guaranteed that the monotonic time returned from POSIX clock_gettime() is comparable in different processes?

I need a solution (or one per platform) that works on at least Linux/Android, *BSD, Windows, macOS.

Thanks for any pointers!
