The variables of time can make Daylight Saving Time really confusing:
- Do clocks move ahead an hour or back an hour?
- When we talk about the beginning and end of DST, and the beginning and end of each day, things get murky. During or after DST, do we get more light at the beginning of the day or the end of the day?
Hard for many of us to remember or to try to figure out.
Wife Regina and I reconciled the first item some years ago with the little slogan, “Spring forward, fall back.” Move the clocks an hour forward in the spring and back in the fall (autumn).
But the second item has always confused us when we try to figure out if we’re going to get more daylight in the morning or in the evening during DST months.
Fortunately, I found a good LiveScience article over the weekend that mentions in passing, brighter evenings during Daylight Saving Time. (Read all about DST… )
So during Daylight Saving we get an extra hour of daylight in the evening.
Then I thought of how our spirit friends have to deal with the passage of time on Earth. Adjusting to our timeline has to be at least 10 times harder for them than DST is for us.
That was mentioned to us in various ITC contacts:
- Albert Fischbach explains the difficulties he had navigating time after arriving on the other side. (Read more… )
- Spirit friend Swejen Salter describes how it’s easy to get caught up in the spirit world timelessness, and she has to shake herself back to her ITC responsibilities in order to realign to the timeline of her friends on Earth. (Read more… )
- In another contact Swejen talks about how, from the perspective of her colleagues at the third level, a time-based existence could not be possible, and many people after leaving the Earth don’t believe it really existed. They’ve forgotten the nature of their Earth experience and don’t believe they were really a part of it. (Read more… )
- During a telephone chat, Swejen reminds Maggy that “there are no space and time separations” on the other side. When she has to meet with spirit world communities of Nordic people or giants or dwarves, she has to sort of teleport to their dimensions, rather than travel through space at a certain time. (Read more… )
I wonder if the spirits have come up with slogans to help them adjust to our timeline… the way we’ve come up with “Spring ahead, fall back”… and “Brighter evenings during DST.”
Maybe that’ll be one of my tasks after I cross over: To come up with slogans or concepts that help the good folks in the spirit worlds try to stay better aligned to the folks back home on Earth, time-wise, during ITC collaboration. But having had to contend with the small problem of Daylight Saving Time here on Earth, I sort of hope not. 🙂
Oh yes, Daylight Saving Time kicks in this Sunday, November 5 (2017).
Oops, correction made to the above article the morning (11/3) after I posted it: Regina reminded me last night that DST ends this Sunday (it doesn’t “kick in”), so it’s going to be brighter mornings starting next week. Hm, maybe it’s just me who’s baffled by DST.
