I meant to add some more "Time" stuff.
One of the most fascinating time pieces is the 10,000 year clock at The Long Now Project, a multi-disciplinary project designed to help humanity focus on the long-term rather than the short term. The project encompasses music, culture, literature, science and more.
One of the offshoots is The Rosetta Project which aims to document all human languages!
He also features in the "Time" segment on the 1 Giant Leap DVD. An excellent resource.
I was going to start musing about time - about cyclical and linear time, about journey time vs. moment time, about chronos and kairos... but ... maybe next time...
