Without Sense

Clocks are extremely important for physics. Physics has not even been possible before the development of reliable reproducible time-measuring devices. From the beginning, the particular notion of time coming along with them has crucial impact on physical theory — and thus on the conception of physical reality.

A reality that is basically intransigent, cold, soulless, ultimately senseless. Things take their course — and besides there is nothing. Yes, the things themselves are irrelevant, and all the more those being alive, thinking, feeling. The hands of the clocks step monotonously forward (even if there are no hands and no clocks).
