Some pictures leading towards the creation of time beast.
Our concept of time being flexible and relative, no shape and something that connects us. In contrast its like we all have our own sphere or ball in which we exist, like our consciousness (our own schedule.)

It is time for time to time time!

Despite time being a universal necessity for things and life to exist and exhaust I find it particularly relevant to my personal existence as I am almost always late. Not quite all the time but often enough for lateness to be my associate. 
As a necessary adjustment to my lifestyle and survival I am currently trying to tune this so that I can be in the right place at the right time, rather than neither or none of these. The adjustments I have made to date are currently working (my maladjustment appears to be resolving its self through habits, decisions and the exploitation of a notebook.) The improvements I am experiencing are astounding as I am much more productive and realistic these days although I still consider myself someone with negligible personal concept of time. 

EXAMPLE: Its as if I think I can do x (imagine any number) amount of tasks that I think or estimate will take T amount of time to complete. However they actually take T+2 amount of time to complete, but I only have a total of T+3 total time in which to do these things (remember there are x "or several" of these T+2 tasks that I have to do.) The out come of these situations are NEVER successful as I always  allow myself to get distracted or am convinced I can do all the tasks when it is infact impossible. 

By jove I know
 my life would be simplified significantly if my management of this time thing was even more effective/efficient/ practical/ realistic. In my defense, I have made considerable progress (in the last 2 years especially -Ive been working on it for many years!) 

Long has it been since the days of booking flights in the wrong direction and getting on the wrong trains to the wrong countries (ooops) and I look fondly back on the memories I have of the times when I rejected justification and structure. The days of my carelessness and frivolous ignorance of this measuring device we name 'time' are waning.... So long youth! (Well perhaps not youth, not yet, but some how so-long.)

Time is very special though. It provides a means of measuring events of the past present and future relative to our human scale. That means it is a dimension, just like up and down, backwards or forwards. Time its self is not actually consistent, just like how the world is not flat. This is a small video about time dilation that explains quite clearly how time is not a rigid as we think it is. This formula has been deduced to determine time dilation
Our ticking seconds, clocks and units are just tools. Time is relative and has a significant connection with perspective. 

Time is flexible but time is made rigid by our need to organize the events that take place in our lives. It is fast and it is slow as well as formless. It exists where ever something (alive or inanimate) is there to witness/occupy space around them. 

Memory is of significant importance in our perception of time. Its kind of as if we are all in our own small time spheres, hence relativity and the general theory of

Example: If I start running from A (gate) to B (post box) I am going faster compared to someone who is just strolling and so I will get to the post box before them. 
  You could interpret that as I am spending more energy, time is slowing down. 

Anyway, memory is our archive and time scale. (these pictures are from stephen hawking brief history of space and time book, more ideas about time.)

I have isolated what I think we need to survive to be time and matter. Time really is why everything exists and why changes take place, matter is simply what changes. If you want to interpretate matter as energy, go right ahead as they could actually be the same thing as they are interchangeable and can be observed as the same. 

Im looking at lots of different things right now to help me come up with some thought as Ill have to work on a freeze-frame of something in motion.  Here are some pictures I find useful. 
This link shows Ferrofluid, its motion is quite life-like. This robotic chair, is quite interesting too. Would have been good to do this for the chair project.

Sir Vival (Author Project: GENESIS)

All our needs boil down to the possibility of entropy exchange on all scales possibly imaginable or real, in all possible moments of the past future and present. Truly survival is down to probability. In all its beauty, horror and exceptional outstanding surprising and heart breaking coincidental magnificence that is present between us all and with in each of us, Life is all about possible events and out comes becoming true on our time scale and the fact that we experience them.

This is the survival function or reliability function.

Which I find relevant and interesting as it is based on mortality. Which is something humans have been unwilling to accept for a long time, but really despite it's sadness and its tragic manipulation/exploitation by people in situations of strife, confusion and war, our mortality is the one natural necessity to ensure variety. Life is determined by varying between repetitions, differentiating and flexibility with in the boundaries of what is for the best. To avoid sclerosis, inflexibility and the inability to adapt when faced with uncontrollable natural forces, excessive repetition is a no-go. Needless to say, boud-less differentiation threatens the internal sense of necessity. Hence, Balance is another vital asset to our survival. It is insured by the mortality of living things and their ability to reproduce and adapt. Adaptation is guaranteed by our responses (both physical and emotional) to our changing environment that fuel growth and development.

Investigating molecular functions or processes in any living thing will probably get us closer to defining the essentials of survival. Survival is about sustaining your existence, or maintaining life/consciousness. To survive, what is necessary (in no particular order) are these:

nutrition (including excretion)/chemicals of life,
cellular organization,
growth and development,
response to surroundings/ sensing,
energy use (human/cellular 'eatage' of energy),

Life is a property that any living thing will have to posses if it is to be categorized as ALIVE. And what an exceptional and unique property it is. Reproduction eventually (after generations etc) allows evolution to physically effect any organism which has been influenced by its environment and its changes in order to improve its ability to live and keep living. Luckily for us one way in which we respond to our environment or surroundings is through the art/science/music/culture/society and relationships we share. These all enhance our existence when they are nurtured. We are fortunate that we can enjoy these things. That its self also helps us live.
Its ironic though as some human responses take us a step backwards which to me indicates that the type of consciousness possessed by the human paradoxically inhibits our ability to survive. Hmmmf? Nonetheless, Im sure we are all grateful to have it.

In the physical, macro-scale existence we have in our communities one of the many key human accomplishments that has made so much progression (funnily again AND destruction) for our species is discovery and ability to influence the direction of energy, eg understanding the fundamentals of thermodynamics. Art and Science are vital and similar in their dependency to each other. For example technological break through from the discovery of cooking clay to computer programing have developed and invented new creative abilities while imaginative thought and our ability to visualize have forced innovations and breakthroughs in Science that help us survive and improve our short lives. *

On that note, lets leave what we have already established and visit this link. (About surviving in an isolated incident) Im sure it will be helpful. Lets thank Andy for that.

Its sometimes un-obvious that our planet is a not entirely regular sphere of molten rock. But thats what it is.
