    Default Time is the only currency that matters

    The only real currency is the time we have left on this Earth.

    What matters is who we give this time to, and how we choose to spend it.

    Very well said.

    I would add that technology can contribute greatly to inflation.

    But no one else considers your time valuable unless you're highly skilled or accomplished.

    That's a problem, I think...

    I think everyone's time is equally valuable.

    We're all human, are we not?

    I have a theory that Ni users have an acute perception of time, which may contribute to their usage of "directive" communication. When time is of the essence, expediency and bluntness is essential.

    Personally, I perceive time as mutable and relative to space. Time and money are interdependent factors. You can gain a profit of millions within a weeks time if you are fortunate enough to win the lotto. On the other hand, you can get to the cusp of 6 digits in a years time with a generous profession.

    Time may be relative, but it moves inexorably against us all.

    Yes, make the most of it. All one has is oneself within a given framework of time and space. This encompasses consciousness and being.

    Indeed it can, and will over the next several decades.

    Yeah, I guess so.

    But I'm usually thought of as irrelevant because I'm not very accomplished and don't stand out, to the point that I feel too insignificant to take up anyone else's time.

    It's why I prefer e-mail and such to the phone... the phone says, "I'm important enough to demand your attention NOW," while e-mail says "Pay attention to this if you have time."

    You should give yourself more credit than that.
