Time is elusive, you just can’t stop it, especially during computer work we only realize how much of it has passed when we stop to check our watches.
Computer work is a time-consuming thing keeping us in an alpha dream-like state oblivious how much of it has passed when we check our watches, time pieces, or the bottom of our video display or screen after spending so much of it.
Since most non-physical work today is done on computers it has become a given, a fact of life, for us that we accept as normal.
We only break from our spell when something absolutely urgent forces us to leave it because our dependence on our computers is so strong.
Proof of this is abundant heck, you only have to leave your home in the morning and see people wandering the streets like zombies looking down on their “smart phones” to see how strong this spell is on our “advanced” society.
My picture depicts an “obsolete” wristwatch resting on top of a computer keyboard both enveloped by the dark background, imagine it is 2:20 AM at night.
