Time vs. Humanity: A Battle We Can Win

"Who owns your time owns your mind. Change your time and you change your mind. Change your mind and you change the world." -Jose Arguelles

Do you ever wonder how so many humans came to be so disconnected from ourselves, each other, and the world around us?

One of the few things nearly the entire world has in common is our use of the Gregorian calendar. The Gregorian calendar system defines the way we consciously experience and relate to time, and it is utterly disconnected and discombobulated. Sadly, as a result, so are we.

Have you ever looked at the mathematical gymnastics that are required to make the gregorian calendar work? Have a look:

“Although the month length pattern is irregular, it can be calculated with the arithmetic expression L = 30 + {

[ M + floor(M/8) ] MOD 2 } for all but February, where L is the month length in days and M is the month number 1 to 12. For February (M = 2), subtract 1 from the result during leap years, or subtract 2 from the result during common years. Gregorian years are identified by consecutive year numbers.[9] The cycles repeat completely every 146,097 days, which equals 400 years, and which also happens to be 20,871 seven-day weeks.[10][11] Of these 400 years, 303 are regular years of 365 days and 97 are leap years of 366 days. A calendar mean year is 365+97/400 days = 365.2425 days = 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes and 12 seconds. The same result is obtained by summing the fractional parts implied by the rule: 365 + 1⁄4 − 1⁄100 + 1⁄400 = 365 + 0.25 − 0.01 + 0.0025 = 365.2425” –

Seriously. Whether or not you even managed to read that whole thing, take a minute to FEEL that in your body. Some of the words commonly used to describe this feeling are: tense, stressed, stupid, disconnected, disengaged, bored, don’t care, checked out, angry, confused…

Now, consider that you are in perpetual engagement with this energy – every single moment of every single day you are alive on this planet.

The Gregorian calendar system is a system that asynchronously regulates and controls every moment of our lives, while disconnecting us from every meaningful natural rhythm and cycle. It confuses our internal biological systems, and locks us into the mind-set that time is always running out. It maximizes our productivity while minimizing our empowerment, and positions us to believe that our days-weeks-months-years are constantly ending, so that we feel at perpetual risk of missing something important – even if we can’t define what it is…
