 IF I COULD SAVE TIME IN A BOTTLE. I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW BIG IT WOULD HAVE TO BE. THERE ARE SO MANY MOMENTS, THAT MAKE UP TIME. SO MUCH, SO MANY, THAT WE HARDLY UNDERSTAND THE VERY CONCEPT OF TIME.  IT MESMERIZES ME, HAUNTS ME, DELIGHTS ME, FREES ME, AND CAPTIVATES ME ALL AT ONCE!

THIS WILL ONLY TAKE A MINUTE! JUST A SECOND! CAN YOU WAIT ONE MINUTE,  HANG ON FOR JUST A SECOND? GOT A MO? THINK IF YOU WILL, OF ALL THE REFERENCES WE MAKE ABOUT TIME, EVERYDAY. NOT TO MENTION THE SONGS, TITLES, MOVIES, ANALOGIES ABOUT TIME ITSELF. REFERENCES WE SUBCONSCIOUSLY MAKE, CONCERNING THAT ELUSIVE, YET EVER PRESENT, "MEASUREMENT" WE, TRY TO CONFINE AND DEFINE AS TIME!

TO ME IT'S ETERNAL....... AND THAT IN ITSELF...... IS QUANTIFYING SOMETHING WE DON'T YET UNDERSTAND. IT, IN AND OF ITSELF IS A MEASUREMENT THAT WAS CREATED INITIALLY!

"IN THE BEGINNING..........

 quantify:

1.
to determine, indicate, or express the quantity of.
2.
Logic . to make explicit the quantity of (a proposition).
3.
to give quantity to (something regarded as having only quality).
