The most precious resource in this world is, contrary to popular opinion, not money. No, in fact it is time. Down to every last jiffy. Of course some have argued that time is merely just a human conception created to measure our own decay, but the reality of the matter is that with our limited perceptive abilities there will always exist what we understand as past, present, and future. Which of the three are more instrumental to us has long been the subject of scientific, religious, and philosophical debate. A Buddhist might tell us to live only in the present, while a Christian sees his past as a source of regret and focuses intensely on the afterlife. Isaac Newton understood that time is a fundamental structure of the universe-- the fourth dimension-- in which events occur in sequence. Immanuel Kant, on the other had, held that time is just an intellectual structure rather than a container. Whatever any of us happen to believe, I think most of us can agree that it should not be squandered. A buck can always be made in a minute, but a minute can never be bought with a buck.
