Try to imagine a life without timekeeping.
You probably can't can you? You know what year it is, the week of the month, or even the hour of the day.There is a clock on your wall, on your television, or even the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calender, a time for dinner, a time to watch a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is being ignored. Squirrels are not late, dogs don't check their watch, deer to not fret over passing birthdays, and birds to not fly constrained to a time schedule.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creatures endures.
A fear of time running out.
