Time is an Adversary, Awareness is Torture

The descent of Man into the Vale of Death , 1813 — William Blake (1757–1827)

Claim Your Time

The industrial revolution did not postpone the inevitable but made the process feel relatively longer.

Constant existence in purgatory.

Being denied heaven being denied hell. Knowing you will end up eventually. Entropy. We are random acts of motions being carried away in evergoing destruction of everything.

In the room, the women come and go/Talking of Michelangelo

Grimmest of all is there is no revenge. You can’t find comfort in knowing that even after you perish, it is going to disappear, killed, destroyed by someone no. Time does not give you that. “There will be time” he wrote.

I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,/And in short, I was afraid.

What if we could find a middle ground in between. That slight second between executing an action and standing still, would that “paralysis” be our way out of this roller coaster?

Weep all you want, pray all you want, sacrifice, heed his words all you want, you were nothing and going to perish into nothing. Your actions, thoughts, flesh, memories, relationships are going to be erased.
