    Invented time is irrelevant to most everything.

    Yet, time as a natural and evolving entity is whimsically enigmatic.
    The lesser connected will always suffer their fate.

    The dumbing down continues.

    ^ "natural time " vs. "artificial time"

    from: Natural time, artificial time | Living World

    Indeed. I remember hearing stories about how at the western extremity of China the Sun would be directly overhead at three in the afternoon. The terminator marches on regardless of things like manmade national borders and standard time zones. Says Nishimura, I had in mind the question, What would time be like without the influence of time in industrialized societies? So Earth Clock was born out of a recognition of the contrast between artificial time and natural time.

    In the morning, the birds all begin to sing in unison as the terminator passes. On the opposite side of the globe, the sunset side, dogs start barking and crows return to their nests. Although in the cities, which increasingly operate around the clock, we live according to artificially designated time with little regard for whether it is day or night, the world at large is overwhelmingly governed by natural time. The terminator turns relentlessly like a music box. Frogs start to croak and birds start to sing. I find this kind of thing fascinating, and Id always wanted to express this somehow in my work.

    Same as in Germany, dictated by EU ruler Merkel.

    After Brexit, you may of course change clocks on a different day, and forward them a day and a sixteenth, just to be different.

    I heard that after Brexit everyone will be free to choose themselves when they change their clocks.
