Space is defined by time because without time there is no distance. Time is defined by space because without distance, time has no meaning. Time and motion are measured by elapsed travel time between objects. Without time, distance has no meaning. These are the rules of the game.
The heart beats many times in a minute, its valves expanding and contracting with each pumping beat, traveling a small distance in, a small distance out. More easily felt, the breath travels a small distance into the body and then, expelled from the body, a small distance to exit through the mouth or nostrils. So we are given our time clock at birth and live with it all our lives, keeping time even as time keeps us inside the game.
We are conscious on some level of every passing moment, though it is an effort to focus on each single moment. Moments are infinite, so are beyond the understanding of temporal beings like us. In existence – space/time – everything has a beginning and an end. Moments, however, can only be measured by what we populate them with: a breath, a phrase, a motion, a color. A number of moments may constitute an experience, but how many? Who can tell us how many seconds or fractions thereof in a moment?
Thank you for spending this moment with me. Because you were here, I will count it as one of my favorites.
