At least since the introduction of modern management systems of time with the clock, a fierce and even bloody war is going on between two or more conceptions of time. The two sides are currently disputing over daylight saving time laws and the triumph of each party marks the beginning of a new political era.
The news of this important battlefield requires a complex laboratory for a comprehensive examination. Provisionally, as with any war, I am interested in the historical roots and forms of the war. It seems that the proponents of daytime saving time law, i.e., those who want to change time during the warm seasons, are progressive activists, while the other are more conservative and tradition-worshipers who are against the clock itself and feel more at home with the solar (Mithraist?) system of management of time.
Last year in spite of the ruling time, we managed to change our personal clocks to live and work in another time scheme. It was a very beautiful experiment and now we are gathering again to devise another, radically different time scheme.
Apparently, there is no end to the clash between the two States of time and any one of them can win in impulsive intervals.
