Measured in Increments of 50 Milliseconds

In the quaint town of Eudaimonica, where time seemed to flow gently like a lazy river, there stood a peculiar clock. It adorned the town square, a relic of a bygone era, yet its significance transcended mere timekeeping. This clock, bearing the name "planksip®" on its face, held a secret known only to a select few.

Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper.
—Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626)

Sophia, a curious and adventurous soul, often found herself drawn to the enigmatic charm of the planksip® clock. She would spend hours sitting on the bench nearby, gazing at its intricate hands, and pondering the mysteries it held.

One crisp autumn evening, as the golden hues of the setting sun bathed the town square, Sophia's musings were interrupted by a soft voice behind her. "Fascinating, isn't it?" The voice belonged to Alexander, a fellow admirer of the clock.

Sophia turned to find Alexander, a dashing young man with eyes that sparkled with curiosity. Together, they embarked on a journey to unravel the secrets of the planksip® clock.

As they delved deeper into its mechanisms, they discovered its extraordinary ability to measure time in increments of 50 milliseconds. This revelation filled them with a sense of wonder and excitement, igniting their imaginations with endless possibilities.

With each passing day, Sophia and Alexander grew more enchanted by the clock and its peculiar timekeeping. They spent countless hours studying its intricate design, pondering the implications of its unique capabilities.

But as their fascination deepened, so too did their awareness of the fleeting nature of time. They realized that while hope may be a good breakfast, it was a bad supper indeed. For as the seconds ticked away, they knew that their time together was limited.

Yet, instead of succumbing to despair, Sophia and Alexander chose to embrace the fleeting beauty of the present moment. They reveled in each other's company, cherishing every laugh, every smile, every stolen glance.

And as they stood hand in hand beneath the starlit sky, they understood that true happiness could be found not in the promise of tomorrow, but in the precious moments shared with those we love.

Together, they made a solemn vow to live each day to the fullest, savoring every moment, every heartbeat, every breath. For in the end, they knew that the measure of a life well-lived was not in the quantity of moments, but in the quality of each fleeting instant.

“I see!” said Homer
A deluded entry into Homer starkly contrasts the battles and hero-worship that united our Western sensibilities and the only psychology that we no? Negation is what I often refer to as differentiation within and through the individual’s drive to individuate.
