Considering Meta-TimeApril 6, 2008
I believe Time is elastic. However, some states keep fighting over space and drawing imaginary lines and “national boundaries”. Hey dear states of the earth wake up! Fighting over land is a post-colonial matter, not to say a medieval issue. Some other states fight over identity: Kurds, Amazigh, Aboriginals, Gays, and Women… All want rights and space where to practice these rights. Hey dear communities of the earth wake up! Fighting over recognition is a twentieth century thing. I see no groups seriously fighting over time! Does the US have power over time? NO. So it’s not the twenty-first century first power in any way.
As a graduate student in International Relations, I find nowhere a theory dealing with strategic time management in International Relations, or at least, a Time-Space theory other than the old-fashion geopolitics of Uncle Kissinger.
As a passenger of that speedy wheel, I seriously consider what would be waiting for me once down when the tour would be finished. Are we heading towards the Holy Scriptures’ apocalypse or Kaplan’s disaster or something else? Anyway, it seems to be the end of an era, or an eon as would say some, in the universe.
I’m not a prophet, and not even a proper researcher. I’m just like birds sensing the upheaval when it’s near. Then, I would just like to ask real specialists to stop analyzing the means (oil, nuclear power, military, water…), or the events or even the personalities of the leaders, because “there is no logic to human behavior” as thought me Dr. Kalpakian. Maybe it’s more efficient to start looking at the wider picture, while drawing on physics for instance, and studying Meta-Time. Our real future enemy can’t be defeated with soft or hard power it’s beyond that. It’s up to you to figure out how to beat it. It’s Time.
