The unperfect story
Try to imagine life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the phone that you use. You have a schedule, a calender, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not stress over passing birthday. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures: A fear of time running out.
