  • Barely *one minute* into this video and my brain popped a memory into my conscious mind reminding me of this *one time* In a class play *when* I *was* in elementary school. In this play about *time* and the *history* of watchmaking and clock creating, there *was* a line in the play that *looking back on it* *was* extremely philosophical and crazy to think about *now* : " *the concept of time itself is an artificial, non-existent thing created by humans simply for convenience...* " Like seriously why *was* THAT line *said* by the talking boar character?!
