Possession and time might not be mutually exclusive. You might be able to have both. But acquisition and time may be mutually exclusive. And acquisition usually results in possessions; so the more shit you buy the less life you live. But here's a little wrinkle: What if you acquire memories instead of possessions? The formula then round into: Time can be acquired. But with what? What do memories cost? They cost time, of course. So if you spend time to get time, you might be multiplying your time. Time x time = time2. Makes me wonder about the origin of the phrase "time well spent." And a friend at dinner tonight ponders the dissolution of his possessions to fall out into the world, but at what risk? Do you ell the house and stocks and make more of yourself? Or do you keep your investments and make more of them?
