The time is out of joint. (Hamlet)
Mankind memorializes time. We celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. We also commemorate decades, centuries, and millennia. The end of the 19th century is called fin de siecle, and the end of the 20th century is called Y2K. With Y2K, we worried about our computers and expected a messiah. But instead, we got a witches' brew of terrorism, war, corruption, economic depression, and natural disasters. Noetically, poetically, and prophetically, the first two decades of the 21st century have unceremoniously ushered in the pandemonium millennium. Now, more than ever before, time must be realized, not just memorialized.
