Los Angeles (and, well, everywhere else,) tomorrow you have a chance to witness a moment in time that has never happened before in most of our lifetimes, and will never probably not happen again (in our natural lives.) Intrigued?
At exactly five minutes and six seconds past 4:00am Wednesday morning, the time and date will be 04:05:06 07/08/09.
Not going to be up at four o’clock in the morning to witness this amazing alignment of clock and calendar? Fear not, as the far more interesting (to me,) yet perhaps not quite as symmetrical, convergence will happen later in the day.
At exactly 34 minutes and 56 seconds past noon, not quite 12:35pm, the time and date will be 12:34:56 07/08/09.
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9! The world may be scheduled to end with the Mayan calendar in 2012, but this has got to somehow be significant, too. No?
Maybe it’s just the old softy in me, but this makes me think that this is a single event that we, all of us, all over the world, will experience at the same time.We may not all experience it the same way; hell, most probably won’t even take notice. But if we can all do this together, think of what else we can collaborate on.
Leave me a comment to tell me how you will spend that second. How will you memorialize this unique moment in human history our lifetimes? Will you take note, so as to one day tell your grandchildren (“You know, I remember where I was at 12:34:56 07/08/09…?”) How often does anyone know ahead of time that they are about to experience a moment in their lifetime, in history, that is totally unique and will never be repeated (as long as they live?) Do something special! And tell me about it; I’m curious like that.
