What time is it…in the Internet

Time is rather relative, however the Internet distorts its perception. The Web is always on no matter hour; it has no days off, holidays; it knows no rest. This artificial ‘reality’, made by humans for humans, represents a philosophy of the non-stop existence rather brightly. It impacts our minds, behaviour & habits. It makes us addicted to the fact that there we’re the rulers of Time, for we can satisfy our various needs any moment we wish.

This artificial attitude to Time, created to please our own ego, will play a bad joke with humanity sooner or later, because it destroys our personal bio rhythms & erases feelings of the natural cycles. Too many of us pay no more attention to the dawn or to the sunset, to Moon’s phases, etc. We are indifferent to rain and snow outside…just because the Internet has its comfort zone that seems to be the best & the most perfect for us. May be it’s another reason why we waste our Time so carelessly. No generation before the web appearing overdid it so much.

We must be careful of our Time. We must take care of it before we have dissolved ourselves in a dreadful inability to answer the question: ‘What time is it in reality?’

  1. Very profound, Maria. I spend way too much time writing which I love but I get your lesson. Oh, look there is a bright orb out there. It radiates heat. I wonder what it is?

    A very thought-provoking post, Maria. We took yesterday off to spend time with the family and we had such a lovely time, just strolling along the beach, soaking up the sun and later, having a meal at the beach restaurant. We relaxed completely and enjoyed each others’ company. We should do this more often.

      Thanks, dear Hester. By the way, the postcard is somewhere between the South Africa & Netherlands. I wonder how much time they need yet! 🙂 We should never leave reality we come from. 🙂

      • HesterLeyNel says:

        Goodness! I think the postcard is traveling on a very slow boat 😄

        It’s really increadible! If things don’t move, next week I will contact the post. They have a real turtle service. 🙂

        I once waited for a book that my sister in law mailed to me from within South Africa. It took 18 days (yes!) from the main post office 60 kilometers away. That will give you an idea of how slow we can go. Hence the reason why we handle everything online or via courier. It will be interesting to see how long this postcard will take to get here.

        True! So, we go on watching them 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Già oggi la percezione è alterata, basta guardare le statistiche su quanti giovanissimi, giovani non hanno più cognizione del tempo che scorre, non escono più dalle stanze per oter stare incollati h24 ad internet.
    Un grande strumento, che aha portato grandi benefici, ma che l’uomo sta usando per annientare se stesso: anima, corpo, mente.
    Ma i tempo si riprenderà il suo tempo, e allora sarà davvero terribile.
    A volte penso che questo strumento sia stato inventato proprio per appiattirci.

    These are very accurate thoughts. And I completely agree with you… Too much Internet and all the devices associated with it… such as YouTube for instance might provoke not only addiction. But a complete sense of being Out of Time, Out of Space… In a sort of alternative reality.
    And with that comes withdrawing, isolation in a sort of atemporal closed space… I wouldn´t say it is “safe”, though… I am wonering if you have ever watched a series called Black Mirror. It is really good, a sort of dystopian world fiction. The series tends to focus on Technology, Internet included…. taking its effect to an extreme point… It is very interesting, and dark… and quite scary too (some episodes are a bit too much, I gotta tell you)…. Sending love across the miles dear Maria 😀

  6. My goodness, Maria, this is a very deep post. I shall be reflecting on these words for quite a while I think. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I have internet downtime, I have to otherwise I’d never get anything learned.

    Wonderful, Maria!
    Despite internet’s role
    in distorting perceptions,
    the time is still
    now 🙂

    I’ve always thought of the Internet as something akin to the human mind–always creating often without conscience. I think we need to meditate on it; in ways, turn it off.

    Thanks for liking my post on turning 50, In a Sentimental Mood.

    Some of us have no life, whatsoever, but online! 😦
