    Just climbed a nice peak in my homeland - 2729m. Was a tough trek, one of the tougher accessible by your average tourist. Loved every second of it.

    Are weird incomplete thoughts welcome?

    Anyway, I've been thinking about time and money. Can't pretend to know a lot, and I'm probably completely off course with my assessment, but I've concluded that they're nothing but abstract concepts designed to tie humans down into a neat, well defined existence.

    Money is paper, or coins or bits in a computer, ultimately representing gold. And it has no physical relevance, other than being understood primitively by all humans. It's a collective mentality. Think about it, does it make sense that majority of people leave their houses in the morning, their kids for a whole day, and go to work for someone else and to make that person richer? An alien looking down on us would see us as we see ants. I guess what I'm trying to say is that money is an attempt at putting value to things that can't be valued, and it's ended up growing into the ultimate measure of life. Which shouldn't be the case if we're being rational.

    Also, time is our way of rationalizing the world as we perceive it. We tend to think in terms of things having a beginning and an end. A natural progression. But what's time, really? If you had a means of freezing everything in the world in their current positions: your motion, the motion of every single atom etc, frozen. Where's time in that case? What's happening to time? For me, it's basically a means of synchronizing our actions with the movement of celestial bodies, mainly the sun's. Would we have thought about time if it weren't for the periodic occurrence of tides, night and day, seasons etc?

    If you got this far, I tip my hat to you. If you understood what I'm trying to say, you're one step ahead of me.

    Our entire existence is controlled - not just by money

    Fuck yeah!

    Time is no more abstract than width, length or height. If you accept those exist, time exists. At least that's the way I see it.

    Money is paper, or coins or bits in a computer, ultimately representing gold. And it has no physical relevance, other than being understood primitively by all humans. It's a collective mentality.

    Except you go to work to pay for food and other stuff that someone else produced. The goal of the exercise is to make yourself richer - enriching someone else is a byproduct.

    Money is far simpler - it's a tool that makes division of labour easier to implement.

    Also, time is our way of rationalizing the world as we perceive it. We tend to think in terms of things having a beginning and an end. A natural progression. But what's time, really? If you had a means of freezing everything in the world in their current positions: your motion, the motion of every single atom etc, frozen. Where's time in that case? What's happening to time?

    Time would still pass. Nothing would happen, but time would still pass regardless. The way we humans choose to perceive time is somewhat arbitrary, but also highly useful. You hit the nail on the head in mentioning synchronisation.

    If you got this far, I tip my hat to you. If you understood what I'm trying to say, you're one step ahead of me.
    Understanding other people is for pussies.


    Anyway, that's my two cents, hope you find it interesting.
