What happens to people when they become speeded up and hyper-sensitive to the passing of time? Think, for example, of how the pace of life has increased over the past 100 years. We don't believe anything should take any time at all. Five minutes is too long. We travel now by automobiles or airplanes, covering in hours what once took days. "News" comes instantaneously from around the world - live (and carefully crafted) pictures from both Washington and Baghdad. Our culture has conditioned us to think of speed as improvement, as advancement, as progress, but nothing comes without cost.
