Scientists are playing around with Time again. A few of them in Moscow say they’ve reversed Time at the quantum level. Those at MIT say “no.” It only looks as though Time’s been reversed.
These geniuses on both sides of the argument should stop fooling around, in my opinion. Our country is divided enough. Think about the three time zones, for example. Last week, to maintain time zones, people all over America had to fall out of bed to push their clocks forward an hour. Wouldn’t all of us have benefited from that extra hour of sleep, instead?
The energy required to shove clocks forward and backwards is exhausting. And that little jingle about falling forward or falling back meant to help us remember what to do? It doesn’t. Most of us, seniors in particular, are capable of falling either way, so which is it?
I’m not alone in my complaint. Thirty-one states are calling for a revolution and not all of them in the south. They want to put Time in leg irons. Congress isn’t far behind. (Daylight saving time: The sleepy backlash,” The Week, March 22, 2019, pg. 16.)
Sure, there are arguments against it. Taxpayers will pay more, but that’s never bothered Congress in the past. Let legislators show concern for our sanity, at least.
The world already runs too fast on what I call computer time. Upload one set of changes from Microsoft and the next day there’s a patch. The only thing that doesn’t change is my pension.
Somebody in authority needs to get Time under control. Otherwise, I’m moving to Utah. Time runs slower there. Last week the legislature repealed their law again an unmarried person having voluntary sex with another unmarried person. (“Good Week for…” The Week, March 22, 2019, pg. 6.) That’s the pace of change a person can see coming.
