…. Doesn't Set For 69 Days, Wants To Abolish Time.

"Have you ever wished that you had more time in the day? Well, you're not alone. Folks on an island in Norway feel the same way, and that's why they want to abolish time altogether. The reason: so they can have more time.

The bombastic idea is the brainchild of Sommar°y island resident Kjell Ove Hveding, who recently met with a member of the Norwegian parliament to submit a petition that would, essentially, get rid of time. At least on their little island…."

Perhaps he has been out in the sun too long…

Sounds reasonable to me, at least for 69 days, or so.

I read about a research study, probably decades ago, that put isolated people in an environment without clocks or views of outside and let them set their own "times" for eating, sleeping, and so on. As I recall, dangerous, the 24 hour day stretched to 36 hours, with 24 awake and 12 asleep.

I suspect that was before PCs with the clock on them or e-mail with the date and time stamp on each, but it's an interesting tidbit as a sort of baseline. Your workday got longer, but your day off was longer too. :)

It's an interesting thought to follow: Without clues about the time of day, our bodies move to a 36-hour cycle. Maybe we evolved from people who evolved on a planet with a 36-hour rotation.

Has anyone told the Ancient Aliens people about this?

If we don't have time would my work week be longer or shorter? Depending upon the answer I may be in Kjell's corner.
