If I Could Turn Back Time

If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life, either to experience the wonderful bits again, or to do something over, which part of you life would you return to? Why?

There are so many instances which I could go back to and like to do differently (don’t we all?). Most would revolve around doing it another way (is there even a right way of doing anything?)

A Bend in Time

When you’re giddy with excitement, does time speed up? Slow down? Tell us about the experience of anticipation.

Of course, when something is awaited for, a good chunk if not all of the mine, depending on the anticipation and anticipated, is focused on it, time slows down, In fact at times feels it has stopped. Whereas when the actual moment arrives, it feels it has gone in a flash! When you think about it when it’s over that is.

Bartering Time

If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare? Would you have services to barter? Would you be successful, or would you struggle?

There is a movie called In Time, in which humanity had been genetically engineered to stop aging at 25 and to be born with a digital clock, bearing a year’s worth of time, on their forearm. At the age of 25 the clock begins counting down; when it reaches zero, that person dies. Time has been turned into the universal currency; one can give time for products or services, as well as transfer it to others. A person can no longer die of old age. She/he can only die by “timing out” (running out of time), having one’s clock “cleaned” (murder by someone taking all their time), or through recklessness (e.g. getting shot, overdosing, etc.)

While the film itself is okay, the concept is very brilliant and intriguing. What else could be more precious apart from our (free) life itself? While the age limit itself can cause a fair share of problems apart from the whole deal, and without it there can’t be an established give-take as there must be a limitation to it for it to reach zero, just like having a specific amount of wealth, it can become nearly impossible otherwise. But this could be something really thought provoking.

That Time Travel Thing

So Blogwati Geeeeeeee said there will be blood time travel. So here is time travel.

Apart from the title with too much Ts, my not-so-great humour and the above video with a guy sitting and walking (and floating) across different places playing an instrument whose name I had to Google search, what entered my mind was:

  • I’m also mostly a vagabond to my current capacity. While I consider myself an ‘aspiring traveler’ so far I ended up going to a few places and mostly I too walk on the streets.
  • Without an instrument or fancy gimmicks though. Heck I don’t even know to play a single instrument despite how rock n’ roll or metal head I look. I prefer any and all kind of music as long as I enjoy it. Same goes for other things as well.
  • I have spent all my time don’t know what I’m doing or what I want most of the time. Well, walking takes time too though.

time-travel-clockWell, you must be thinking that the song/video is called as ‘Time Traveler’ but had more to do with space, as most of what I wrote right? Well both are so inter-related as a matter of fact (it’s a science thingy, called space-time continuum, but let’s not go there)

Hey don’t click that wikipedia link (yet), BE HERE.

That being said, in short, I don’t know how time flies nor I spend too much time (or any as a matter of fact) thinking about what happened. Guess I’m so hopeless in the moment right?

My daily mantra.

Well, traveling in time or otherwise, that video reminded me of how the most powerful ‘thingy-s’ in life are so simple. Or maybe I’m the wise guy who always knew it and giving it too much credit which it doesn’t deserve.

With enough of space-time thingy (what a nice word not to use anytime conveniently when you don’t know the particular term associated with something, even when people are so lazy now that they don’t bother to look it up despite being on the internet, let alone in real life) here is something for your entertainment if you didn’t knew already, if you don’t read comics but are an avid reader (then for who knows what misguided reason you don’t read comics) of literature then you should check this comic series called Deadpool: Killustrated, based on the fan favourite character Deadpool who is known for Breaking the Fourth Wall. Here in these stories, this guy is bored and with nothing to do (in a manner of speaking) goes around traveling in time and butchering famous novels in literature. Hell fun (or should I say ouch). 😀
