And let’s countdown together! 1… 1… 1… Go! It’s currently 11th of November 2011, 11:11am UTC or if we have to present it funkier 11-11-11 11:11:11. So what does this mean to you? And what does this mean to me? Does it mean anything at all? Yes and no.
It’s just another tick-tock of the clock, or total of 24 tick-tock’s around the globe: 1 for each timezone. You might be lucky and hear two of those tick-tock’s if you are traveling to the West faster than the Earth’s rotation speed (only possible with Concorde commercial flights which don’t exist anymore) , or traveling to the East through the International Date Line. But as far as I know there is no 11-11-11 11:11:11 Tick-Tock-er Award, you can’t get rich and famous. Unless maybe you manage to hear it three times, then you might get a Nobel Prize for it. And yes, that’s not valid for people in orbit and pilots in fighter aircrafts, that’s cheating. Unquestionably it’s fun to think about it, but other than that this phenomenon has not actual purpose.
You probably see it coming right? I hope you see it already, if not bear with me.
Someone told me a while ago, there is no right or wrong, good or bad, purposeful or purposeless, it all depends on the angle you are looking at it. Let’s do a rotation transformation together … say… with angle of rotation 111 degrees, direction clockwise. Do you see it now? How do you feel? It’s good, it has purpose, it makes me smile. Smile along.
So what is it? What do we have in front of us? A beginning.
A beginning of an unwinding path that leads to the new purpose - put a tock to procrastination and a tick to imagination. 1 Universe, 1 Earth, 1 you and 1 me all fighting 1 evil. We are all 1, and in this 1 we are many. 1 + 1 = 1.
1 tiny step onto this path by 1 of you out there might cause 1 big difference. 11-11-11 11:11:11 is gone in the blink of an eye, but imagination will last forever.
