Of course, the intelligent use of time does not, in itself, awaken the timeless, and with it wholeness, peace and understanding. After all, many monks have wasted their lives following rituals and pursuing methods of meditation. For timelessness to come into being in ones being, one has to take the time to learn how to observe and question within oneself, and do the spadework of self-knowing on a daily basis. Hopefully, the childish fascination and fetish with high-tech toys is just a phase of human development. With a new relationship to machines, the development of the human being could be served, rather than diminished by them. There can be a harmonious integration with our machines, which certainly doesnt mean becoming cyborgs or unduly dependent on them. Such integration would allow time for the truly important things, like being in nature, spending time with ones children, family, and friends, inquiring with others, and solitarily exploring the infinite universe within.
