A Moment of Your Time, Please

I was watching Medium last night. It started out with a reference to time and how fleeting it is. We are all on borrowed time, and each moment we have is at that moment gone forever.

So I thought about LOST. About time. Not about borrowing it, but instead about owning time. What would it mean to own time? What could you do? What would you do? How powerful would that make you...and what would that power do to you?

And if you knew you could...that it was actually possible to own time, what would you do to make that happen? Especially if you have the wealth/resources to make it happen.

There would be no more "There was a time when I would have..."whatever. There would be no more "I wish I had..." whatever.

At least there would be none of that as long as there were no rules.

But what if there were rules? Rules like you can't go back and change things that have already happened. Could you live by those rules?

If your dearest love was in an accident and killed, could you abide by the rules or would you try to change things?

If a child contracted a deadly disease and you could fix them by going back, would you?

You would have broken the rules if you did so you wouldn't own time anymore. Could you lose that power? Could you lose time?

And what if someone put you in a "Kobayashi Maru"...a no win situation where breaking the rules was all you could do. Time would have been literally stolen from you...stolen from you by someone who could manipulate things that much to their advantage. The big picture - someone who could do that now owned the most precious commodity we have.


What would you do to see they did not own it forever? Whether you got it back or not, wouldn't you want them to lose it too? And wouldn't you do anything to see that they lost it?

I was just thinking about this and felt like sharing.

But I think I've taken up enough of your time.
