The clock of our time is an instrument of mechanical, noble and clear form, which can be bound or suppressed by no ties; it is a customised machine, whose pinions, wheels and springs are a visible extension of our organism; it is a spiritual heart that does not mark out the time, but marks out life itself with its precious beat.
So, what is time? What does it mean to look at the time?
Looking at the time means knowing how much time I have left, how much time I have to do this or that; it is ‘time for’. In this context, man becomes pure potential, as he needs to ‘count on time’ in order to do something. This ‘counting’ does not refer to numbers but to taking the time into account, to being right there, right now – to existing.
Why is there a suggestion of a clock that does not set the time?
Eliminating the numerical aspect of clocks aims at disabling this time-keeping device which keeps control on society, that is not say, defeating the modern man or robot, the individual who does not have time to stop for useless things, the one who is deemed to become a machine with no soul.
