The reading felt like one was looking inside the mind of Einstein during his famous thought experiments. Like he was playing with the idea of time and how it would be experienced by society in a real world scenario if these various conditions existed. Sometimes sad, sometimes happy, sometimes neither but all were poetic.
All of the days were interesting, but 29th of May is the most telling to my mind. The world in which the faster you go the more competitive edge you have on your neighbor. It has echoes of the world in which we currently live. We all sleep less and work longer hours forsaking our private lives and families to gain an edge on our competition. I particularly like the part when people choose to shutter the world to experience time as it “should” be with their families and loved ones.
Speaking of time here is some interesting stuff on time and quantum entanglement.
