What hour is this? Read more on the Real Time sheet

Time is a queer specimen

Sometimes it feels like a gigantic ocean you can infinitely draw from.
Sometimes it feels like a scanty source, close to drying out.
The landmarks of time are described in detail:
a moment like lightning, a short while, an eventful day, a steady season, a rich life.

These periods are designed by our consciousness.
Our inner streams float with their own rhythms - with their own time.
We are aware that the hour passing by in a glimpse may be experienced as an eternity by somebody else.
And our huge daydream may only have lasted a few seconds.
Nevertheless, time seems to be controlled by a cosmic clock outside ourself, telling us the 'real time'.
