Post The Clock of the Long Now
Never mind the Doomsday Clock, that's old hat. Check out the 10,000 Year Clock or, "The Clock of the Long Now", a moniker coined by Brian Eno, musician, composer, producer, and one of the founding members of the Long Now Foundation who, along with other members, is "trying to stretch out what people consider as now"...

The idea, the clocks' inventors say, is to "embod(y) deep time': "ideally it w(ill) do for thinking about time what the photographs of Earth from space have done for thinking about the environment..." Originally conceived by computer scientist Danny Hills, "the idea to build a monument scale, multi-millenial, all-mechanical clock as an icon to long term thinking...." is morphing even as we speak.

What a great concept, surely something to feel good about as we move into another year. To my mind the very creation of this fantastical clock has the capacity to heal 'matter' -- catch the wave...
