We are constantly pressed by time . When we are young , we have time but we don't know how to use it . As we grow up , we realize that time passes by and yet we are stuck in a cycle of laziness , if that makes any sense . When we are at the age of 16-17 we start having part-time jobs because we want to travel , to buy something , to get a tattoo or anything , and we realize that these things cost a lot of money . Once we start working , we never stop . But that's not the point . The point is that even if we had all the time in the world , we would still look for more .
But what if time was limited and we just wouldn't measure it ? It's hard , even for me , to imagine a life without timekeeping . I'm so used to see what time is it every 5 minutes that I can't even imagine otherwise . It would also be confusing because we are used to go to school or work and if we wouldn't measure time , there would be chaos . I think you can't have both . Either you live a normal life , either you stop living like the others and be on your own .
Getting back to the idea of having unlimited time , well , that means that we would be immortal . People are fascinated by immortality since forever . A man said in "In time" that everyone has to die . That's the way it has to be . He said that even if you are immortal and you live for 200 years , you might not change your look , but your mind grows old . You can look like a 20 year old boy , but your mind can't process things . Immortality is not natural .
It's a challenge , to imagine a life without timekeeping . What do you think ? You think we could live without measuring time ?
