Tut posting 3 Mediation: Time


What I have to say about the readings this week is interesting.

We are now living in a world that time can be notice by  media: like TV, radio programme.

But the rise of internet may even make that not true, because we can download and watch the programme anytime. With portable devices, we can enjoy movie, podcast anywhere, anytime.

Time, the 24 hours, is related to sun location.

People get up and work when dawn, sleep at sun set, such as farmers.

As instantaneous telecommunication take place in almost everyone media ritual, we live in a world may base on other time zone. Like investment banker in Australia need to pay attention to UK stock market, which have a 12 hours delay. Or for leisure, watch football match in UK.

Time is first measure by the attitude of sun, now is measured by ‘the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom’.

The most popular way to measure time is by a watch.

All in all, the environment, like the falling of leaves showing seasonal changes, as a natural time indicator.
