It is Space and Time that make things move

“Time is the primary socializing tool and the clock is the key machine of industrial capitalism. The imperialism of space and material is everywhere evident, but the imperialism of time is a shadowy beast. What is of direct concern is how time is perceived, controlled, exploited, manipulated, institutionalized, and internalized. If we do not understand time, we become its victims.

One thing remains apparent: time politics are power politics. Every sundial, water mill, calendar, week cycle, social policy, and temporal monument has served a particular interest and ideology. The hallmark of these, of course, has always been technological power and chauvinist control. In the service of precision, the atomic second is now defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 particle oscillations within a cesium 133 atom.”
Buried Inside, Chronoclast (Introduction), 2005

“That [people] can be characterized as wound up, run down, rusty, or going like clockwork is essentially a product of seventeenth century thought. It implies not only that their work may be accurately measured, but also that their motions can be studied. Given proper incentives, they will follow predetermined and appropriately mechanical patterns”
–Samuel L. Macy, “The Dynamics of Progress: Time, Method, and Measure” (1989)

Every seventh time the Sun rises and sets most of the world’s population hits the “replay” button on their life and continue repeating the same conditioned pattern/schedule like an endless loop for every small facet of modern society and its entire existence. Whole lives become reduced to repetitive patterns, suffocating and incarcerating the soul with a plethora of surrogate activities.

Without any help from humankind, The Moon goes around the Earth.  Of course it is humans who measure the course of travel and it has a cycle of thirteen times in one year. 13 x 28 = 364 +1 day equals 365 days, one solar year. 

The Sun and Earth’s interaction gives us a yearly cycle, the Moon’s lunation pattern give us monthly cycle, the constant rising and falling of Sun and Moon gives us a daily cycle, and the Moon’s affect on tides gives us a natural quarter day cycle as the tides come in and out. All other delineations of time, however, are arbitrary and man made.

If space affects our senses, time affects our mind. Therefore the effects of a crooked time on the mind may be far more subtle, yet far worse than the effects of a crooked space on the senses. We could all develop a crooked mind without even knowing it.

Wouldn’t a crooked mind see the world in a crooked way and create problems for itself without knowing it? Not only that, but we would then think all of our problems come from some place outside of ourselves. We would always be looking for the problems out there some place.”
–Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (2003)

In more modern times, those who worship the Moon/Lunar cycles are called lunatics, monsters and nutjobs. Those who measure time by the Sun/solar calendars find solace. The etymology again points towards our “illumined” masters and their Sun worship.

To associate the nature of time with the evolution of consciousness seems to be a much more evolved outlook. The Maya learned about the 25,920 year precession cycle of the equinoxes in which the Earth rotates slightly for 2,160 years past each constellation of the zodiac.

As a result of that advanced discovery, all the Aztec/Mayan books and documents were burned in 1562. Interestingly enough, ten years later in 1572, there was a new pope. He named himself Gregory XIII and declared that his first act as pope would be to correct the Julian calendar.

In, 1582. and after hijacking the Aztec/Mayan Cosmology, Pope Gregory XIII had achieved his aim. When you went to bed on the evening of October 5, 1582,  you woke up it was October 16 and not October 6. Pope Gregory XIII had made up for this ten days and the Julian calendar was now known as the Gregorian.”  —Edited excerpt from Jose Arguelles, “Stopping Time” (2003)

Now, we further manipulate the natural human chrono-biological cycle with something called  ‘Daylight Savings Time.‘ As previously stated, this rather nefarious form of psycho-social conditioning provides evidence and proof, if nothing else, that “Time is the primary socializing tool and the clock is the key machine of industrial capitalism. The imperialism of space and material is everywhere evident, but the imperialism of time is a shadowy beast. What is of direct concern is how time is perceived, controlled, exploited, manipulated, institutionalized, and internalized. If we do not understand time, we become its victims. […]”
