Our Times of the Quickening - 2017

Nadine’s research for her futuristic novel series about discovering the truth or lies, has led her to insights she shares in her articles.

The image I* created for this article was to give readers a visual feeling of stepping into a speeding time capsule. Remember the TV series Stargate? I was given permission by Rainer Kalwitz to use his Stargate element in this image.

What does it mean to experience a paradigm shift?

It has to do with accepting change, evolving & awakening, The signs are all around us. Having a personal computer and connecting through the internet have impacted both personal and business environments. Could that be the catalyst for a Paradigm Shift?

There are many to be found on the internet, but what does really ring true? Are we blinded by the Perceptions we all hold dear, so we resist change?

Times are truly speeding up. So much has happened during the year 2016 and now during the middle of the year 2017, Is anyone questioning if, or what they have manifested during 2016? Since we are all co-creators of the reality we experience, that that can be a very confrontational question. Every week seems to go by in a flash. People who make to-do lists for one day, they might never completed them. Why is that?


Why does it seem as if time is speeding up?

Could it be true that our entire solar system is slowing in its journey around the galaxy? Some believe the Earth's spin is slowing and a magnetic pole reversal is going to happen.
Personally I have no idea or understanding about that, but during the course of my research and reading books by Zecharia Sitchin - who claims to have translated the Sumerian text - that the Anunnaki seemed to have known that they would return to planet Earth in due course. Really?

Many conspiracy authors have written about the Anunnaki - also called the Illuminati - who might be imposing a "New World Order." agenda through our world leaders. What made these writers believe that the human race on a global scale has been programmed for their agenda? Would the two authors I have included in this post have an account for the acceleration of time?

The general idea I was introduced to 20 years ago, of civilizations being created/cloned or manipulated by otherworldly beings stretched my understanding big time. It taught me to embrace any new idea with an open heart/mind. At the time it seemed that we were living in a science fiction novel, and today I still think we do, but from a larger more spiritual perspective.

  • Could a preview of a Paradigm Shift and predicting a Golden Age through story telling bring an awakening of each individual soul?
  • If we can create our reality with our minds can a fictional plot then become a reality?

More and more research is needed

For years I’ve studied writings like Zecharia Sitchin, who believed that what the Sumerians knew was imparted to them by "Anunnaki" space travelers who were responsible for the basis of ancient science and religion. This information was later translated into many languages, including Greek and biblical Hebrew.

What were their reasons behind this "programming?"

According to Sitchin, the Anunnaki called our planet ERIDU, meaning "Home away from Home”. Sitchin's translations of the Sumerian language could be totally out, since it was his personal interpretations of pre-Nubian and Sumerian texts.

Today I hold a very different perception about the Anunnaki and what they have done and still are doing to humanity on Planet Earth.


Life on earth today during the Quickening

Many people live hectic lives, especially if they have a 9 to 5 job, or even two jobs.

  • Some mothers or fathers have to get up early to drop kids to school followed by joining heavy traffic on the way to work.
  • There are students who have several jobs to do before they make it for the first lecture at their university.
  • Many people in South Africa have to get up very early to get on time to work by using public transport.
  • Many children in South Africa have to get up before sunrise and walk for several hours to get to their school.

If you work from home, traveling is not a problem but, spending at least six to eight hours in front of a computer screen, a laptop, or a cell phone, gives one the same feeling of ‘the speeding up of time’.

Susan B. Martinez Ph.D Demonstrates in her book: Time of the Quickening: Prophecies for the Coming Utopian Age that within our past is the hidden key to the future. She uncovers the prophetic numbers of Earth’s cycles; 11, 33, 99, and 363 as set forth in the Egyptian Tables of Destiny. By using Earth science, historical research, religious texts, spiritualism, and patterns within the cycles of war and political milestones, she demonstrates that the past is the hidden key to the future. I will have to study her book more in-debt to write a review on it.

The “Quickening” of the human race

Do the Earth’s magnetic rhythms have something to do with our feeling that time is speeding up? I’m more and more attracted to explore that idea.

Tesla and Schumann both discovered that Earth essentially functions as a massive planetary capacitor, storing and releasing electrical charge at specific intervals. So it seems that if our planet goes through changes in magnetics and frequency, that is why many people are feeling the effects of the changes physically.

It’s as if our physical bodies are trying to attempt to tune in to the changing frequency of our planet. That might be one of the reasons why we are feeling that time is speeding up. The video I have included is well worth watching!

Very powerful video

What are the physical symptoms of these changes?

Our human bodies are composed of several fields, or layers of energies. Articles like the seven layers of consciousness explain this in a different way.

One key factor in this vibration process is the willingness of each individual to achieve balance within our energetic system by using the tools of Choice and Free Will. We all have those tools. It’s activated through our intuitive nature.

If it were not for the variables that can provide resistance to these ideas, such as belief systems, or a total lack of interest in the awakening movement, when instead an individual clings to structures that do not fit into their beliefs of entering into a new paradigm, that individual will likely encounter resistance to cellular frequency with planetary frequency.



The primary tool of adapting to life is life itself. When our bundle of emotions, attitudes, perceptions, fears and beliefs are in chaos then the framework for the challenges of life is distorted. Then we all have to question to ourselves, is that the agenda of the powers that seem to be in control of our planet Earth?

Was the Photon belt theory of long ago true?

In this article I explore what seems to be happening during our times.

Thanks for reading my contemplation's



Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on August 20, 2017:

Hi, Anita thanks for reading this article on the illusions about time. We truly do live during interesting times when what we thought was for real is not always so.

Anita Hasch from Port Elizabeth on August 12, 2017:

Super, well written article Nadine. Time most certainly seems to fly. Change is definitely coming and the internet will see to that. In the past so much was hidden. I have a little book, 'The New World Order,' have not had time to read it though. Must say I don't like the sound of it. I find it amazing how certain knowledge seems to come to you. You think about something that you really want to know, and then the answer comes. You pick up a book or an article and there is your answer. It's like you are connecting to the universe.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on December 28, 2016:

Many thanks for reading this re-edit hub aesta, especially since I have to re-edit it again due to Hubpages not Featured policy.

Mary Norton from Ontario, Canada on December 27, 2016:

Thanks for sharing this in G+. It is thought provoking and though I have read about this a bit, I am aware there is so much more to explore.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on October 05, 2014:

That is a thought. I always think its me that knows nothing about how everything works. I must admit now that my PhotoShop is working a lot faster I'm glad I've done the reformatting. I might have been hacked since I could not get into my Bubblews account for three weeks, but that is now also sorted. Someone at the Google+ group site came to my aid.

Yes there might very well be a movement that would like to censor the lot of us, but I think they will lose the battle. Now I'm off to your article about the Golden Nebula.

somethgblue from Shelbyville, Tennessee on October 05, 2014:

I personally do not feel all the computer issues going one all over the world is a coincidence, as you may know I'm a graphic artist all day and write online, so am well aware of computer issues.

These disruptions serve the purpose of censorship and various other hacking scenarios, they are not accidents. I suspect TPTB are trying to limit the information the awakening public has access too.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on October 05, 2014:

Oh many thanks for letting me know Daniel. My computer has crashed several times and has now gone through a major re-formatting. That is way I have not been on hubpages for a whole month. I'm almost felt homesick! There is also a lot of work to catch up on, so I hope to be on track again from this month onwards.

somethgblue from Shelbyville, Tennessee on October 02, 2014:

Just wrote an article about the Golden Nebula a.k.a. the Photon Belt, that you should check out and see if it coincides with this one.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on July 28, 2014:

Thanks for stopping by and that you liked my graphic art.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on July 27, 2014:

Nadine, your hub puts a different spin on the concept of time that is interesting.

Your art work is beautiful.


Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on July 26, 2014:

Ho Au fait thanks for your comment. What we have been taught about our history on all levels is so misleading and completely untrue, thank goodness we are now waking up! At least some of us are. How we have interpret our human or planet Earth history depends very much on the culture we have brought up in. I'm so glad that hub pages is a platform where we can all air our views or understanding in a creative format for others to comment on. Ha Ha Joan Rivers indeed looks creepy.

C E Clark from North Texas on July 26, 2014:

Initially our bodies were not meant to age, but then Adam and Eve disobeyed God and can you imagine if all humans were to live forever as they are now? Greedy, conniving, willing often times to sell their own mother and all of their children for some selfish reasons?

God ordered Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden before they could eat of the Tree of Life, and thus our bodies are corrupt and become diseased and decay. Disease is the result of sin. That condition is passed on to offspring, unfortunately.

Those who are saved by Jesus Christ will be given new incorruptible bodies that will live forever. Anyone who has read and understood the Bible knows these things. Many Christians have no idea what is in the Bible, so it isn't just nonChristians who may be confused.

Regardless of whether you are a Christian or not, the perception one has of time passing is pretty much the same for everyone, and has always been. Yes, our bodies are susceptible to disease in this world and essentially you are correct in that the aging of our bodies is a disease. For those who believe and have faith, that issue will be resolved one day.

Aging is not universal? Are you speaking of people who die so young they never have a chance to age? Or are you suggesting there are humans on this planet who do not experience aging or death?

I'd love to meet a human who has not aged with time, or died and is at least 200 years old as proof. Please do not suggest Joan Rivers. She may not look her 81 years, but she does look weird. If she is aging differently than the rest of us, I think it is actually due more to the Invasion of the Body Snatchers than it is due even to cosmetic surgery. :)

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on July 19, 2014:

What you wrote all very true, but there is also another way to look at aging. I see aging as a kind of dis-ease. I' do not believe that our physical bodies were meant to age at all. This is a very controversial viewpoint, but I'm not alone in this. Aging is not universal. You have me inspired to prepare an article on the topic of aging.

C E Clark from North Texas on July 19, 2014:

I did say that technology plays a part, but really it's the aging process. This feeling that time is going faster and faster was common long before television, microwaves, and computers. It is how we perceive reality as we get older. As I said, time goes very slow for little children and speeds up as we get older. That isn't new. It has always been that way.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on July 17, 2014:

Thank you for your lovely reply and vote up to my hub on the illusion of time.Yes you are so right that our technology is making our physical reality go a lot faster.

C E Clark from North Texas on July 17, 2014:

As you know, to young children it seems as though Christmas comes only once every 5 years or so. By the time they are in the 3rd grade or there about Christmas seems more like it comes every 2-3 years. By the time children are 12, they sense that Christmas comes once a year, which it does. Researchers say we are most attuned to the actual passage of time when we're between 12-14 years old.

After that time starts speeding up more and more. By the time we're parents ourselves, Christmas often seems to come once every 9 months -- there's not quite enough time to pay off last Christmas before next Christmas is here and more expenditures are needed.

When our children become preteens Christmas seems to come every 6 months. We no sooner finish the holidays around that time of year than here they are again!

People have been complaining about how time seems to speed up as they get older from the dawn of time. My grandparents did, my parents did, and now I do. How we perceive anything is a personal thing related to us, not to the planet or the universe.

To a very young child time crawls, but to someone like me it's going so fast I can't keep up, but I still remember how it passed years ago. Summers off from school used to seem like forever. Even Christmas vacation seemed like a loooong time. Now things are moving faster and faster just like they did for my parents and grandparents as they got older. It really is a common experience that pretty much everyone has if they think about it.

Today's world is very different from the world 50 and 100 years ago. People used to move at a slower pace. There were no microwaves, no telephones, no automobiles, no airplanes, no computers.

Communication from the U.S. to relatives/friends in Europe used to take months. Sometimes took months from New York state to Missouri or California! Now with current technology a person can communicate with thousands of people all over the world all at the same time in seconds. All of those changes affect a person's perception of time.

The greater our technology, the more we are expected to accomplish in the same time frame. Nothing makes time fly like keeping busy. Double your workload and actually get it done and see if it doesn't seem to you like time has just doubled in its speed. Not a conspiracy. Just changes humans have made to their own lives. Everyone's perspective is different, but all seem to feel the passage of time more as they get older.

Voted up.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on April 23, 2014:

Ha I got it! Thanks for your reply

Tim Mitchell from Escondido, CA on April 23, 2014:

Yes Nadine you see the wisdom I surely did not understand when my grandpa shared. Not only did the child live a lifetime, yet also the gentleman lived 1/71 of a lifetime. Much shorter? Thus one may ponder how each year comes to be less and passes by faster, yet time is infinite. I was busy with time as a measurement then. There is contrast with time as a concept of reality and of life.


Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on April 19, 2014:

Hi Nell thank you for your comment. I liked what you wrote, that some people call the pineal gland the time travel gland

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on April 19, 2014:

Ha ha Tim thanks for stopping by ( in your time) Interesting question but please tell me the answer. The child lived its entire life in one year?

Nell Rose from England on April 19, 2014:

I love reading about the Sumerians their whole belief system fascinates me, and yes you could very well be right. I did read something the other day about as we age time goes faster due to the effects of the pineal gland in the brain, which in a nutshell makes us feel as though time is going faster as we get older, take a look on google its fascinating reading, they call it the time travel gland! great hub nadine, and fascinating reading, I love this sort of stuff! lol!

Tim Mitchell from Escondido, CA on April 19, 2014:

I like the theories presented and concepts too. I have written the titles down, yet I ponder the time of reading and reading time. It does seem less today and too oddly things take longer as I age. Why . . . I dun'no. I am reminded of a puzzle my grandpa told me when near a teen. He asked if a man of 70 born on Jan 1 lived a year and a child that day was born lived a year then he would be 71 and the child 1. Who lived longer in that year? I was told the answer and ponder still today :)


Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on April 19, 2014:

I do love your artwork! As to the Photon Belt, I must admit that I have not heard of it. All I know is that time seems endless when a youngster and it seems to speed up the older we get. I think that has remained the same.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on April 19, 2014:

Hi Jackie thank you so much for your comment. I'm sure you will get to grasp my perception of our physical reality, since you came past my profile. Thanks for sharing.

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on April 19, 2014:

I love your art too and like most the theory here is a bit over my head, lol, but I would like to understand it. I will read more later (busy weekend) and see if it sinks in a bit. Up and sharing.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 22, 2014:

Thank Michael and love the word dazzling

Michael J.Nolan from Carbondale, Illinois on March 22, 2014:

A provocative premise. I love the idea of living in a time of quickening and your illustrations are dazzling.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 22, 2014:

Thank you Eiddwen for your kind words

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 22, 2014:

I love the Hollow Earth topic and have a few articles from the past still on my PC, but I must first find out if I have not published it anywhere else.

Eiddwen from Wales on March 20, 2014:

Wow what a brilliant hub Nadine and I now look forward to so many more. Voted up and shared.


somethgblue from Shelbyville, Tennessee on March 19, 2014:

I see that you asked me a question and the answer is I know nothing about the photon belt theories however now that you have asked, I'll put it near the top of my list of intriguing topics to be researched.

Right now I'm in the middle of researching all the ancient giant skeletons unearthed in early America and the Smithsonian's obvious cover up of the information. What purpose does it serve? What is the motivation for this censorship beyond the Darwinian aspect of it. How does it fit in with Hollow Earth and early civilizations theories, those kinds of questions . . . so I might be at it for a while.

Anyway it is good to see your article getting such good interest and thought provoking comments.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 19, 2014:

From a purely mental, or intellectual point of view, that is one explanation. Thanks for the question.

Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on March 18, 2014:

Surely time is just the measurement of (planetary) motion?

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 18, 2014:

Thanks for your comment Teacher! Yes indeed time does not really exist, its the human mind that seems to function in a time zone.

Dianna Mendez on March 17, 2014:

You certainly know how to write with creative content. Time is a mystery. However, I believe it was made for man, beyond our space it doesn't exist.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 11, 2014:

Hi Suzette yes time does flies for me as well. Its well past my bedtime but I must just make to time to reply to all my readers. Thanks for stopping by.

Suzette Walker from Taos, NM on March 11, 2014:

This is a fascinating article. Time flies for me and I have attributed it to growing older. Your insights into time are amazing and I never really stopped to think about it. I will have to read the book you did. Time is something we can never catch and even if I did I wouldn't know exactly what to do with it. LOL Thanks for a thought provoking article.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 10, 2014:

Many thanks for that explanation. I now see and understand where you are coming from. It's never so clear cut with me. I follow a kind of instinct, then look at various different angles where an idea may come from, including what other authors have speculated, and then make my own summery at the time of the writing.

James John Bell from Union, Washington on March 10, 2014:

Nice summary about the photon belt beliefs. You had mentioned the book about the Pleiadeians called "The Bringers of the Dawn" and here in the northern hemisphere the constellation of the Pleiades rises with sunset on Halloween, and at midnight is directly overhead. The Pleiades, in lore from that book and other new age authors, is where the "Photon Belt" emanates.. I was just pointing out the constellation's connection also to the time period of Halloween over here.

"In New Age lore, some believe that Sun and the Earth will pass through a Photon belt from the Pleiades, causing a cataclysm and/or initiating a spiritual transition (referred to variously as a "shift in consciousness," the "Great Shift," the "Shift of the Ages")."

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 10, 2014:

Oh. Well thanks for stopping by my page on the times of the Quickening. Since I'm in the southern hemisphere I'm not sure what your meaning was with your comment.

James John Bell from Union, Washington on March 09, 2014:

Regarding the Pleiades, for those who live in the northern hemisphere the star cluster appears directly overhead (look straight up) at midnight on Halloween. That period of time from late October through early November and the Pleiades ("Seven Sisters" or just "the Seven" or "Sept" or "Subaru") is associated with the world of the dead..

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

Indeed Frank we all are very influenced by our background and environment, and that has shaped our beliefs. The trick for me is to have none and instead have an open mind to everything.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

Thanks Suzanne for your vote. You are right about that Times have changed. Yes indeed the many ways we can now communicate does also play a large role indeed.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

Dora I love writing about my research topics that I use for my novels in this way. It's a great way to keep my mind stimulated when I write fiction. Thanks for stopping by.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

Many thanks for the link and your comment. I'm always am on the lookout for more information on the many topics I investigate. I've just been to your page and will start reading some of your interesting articles.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

So glad you liked my artwork. Ive been investigating all these theories for the last twenty + years and only in the last two years many more people are drawn to this information. I'm glad to write articles about the Sumerians, spreading it onto my hubpages and wikunut sites

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

Thanks Flourish and I'm glad you decided that wasn't any kind of life all that racing to work. I am starting to post all the article images onto my two blogs so people can download them for their own use. at wordpress

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 08, 2014:

Thanks for your comments Daniel. What do you know about the photon belt theories?

Frank Atanacio from Shelton on March 07, 2014:

i like to read those books just to get a better understanding about the concept. It seems like a good theory.. based on our belief systems .. but nevertheless it is a very well put together hubs...

Suzanne Day from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on March 07, 2014:

It is a good theory you have put forth about why we are quickening. I do think we are certainly moving, thinking and acting a lot faster and this does put a lot of stress on the human body. Times have changed. However I just put it down to the fact that there are so many more ways to communicate; that people now compete on a worldwide scale; that insecurity (based on our belief system) makes us feel stressed when we don't get what previous generations get; and that more is being demanded of us that ever before. But it's good to see different angles on this as no one really knows what it is. Voted interesting!

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on March 07, 2014:

Much of this is beyond me, too, but I find the concept of the quickening interesting. It really deserves our attention. Thank you, Nadine for undertaking to instruct us

Marc Hubs from United Kingdom on March 06, 2014:

Yes, the speed of Earth's rotation would have an effect on our perception of time. Also, check out gravitational time dilation: - I have researched and written about Earth's rotation, magnetosphere, anomalous changes, etc.

John Hansen from Australia (Gondwana Land) on March 06, 2014:

Very thought provoking concepts discussed here Nadine.I don't know if it's coincidence, but I have read a number of articles in the last week about human civilizations being influenced by alien visitors and even interbreeding with them. I have been discussing how time seems to be speeding up, with recent years just seeming to fly by. I just put that down to my aging, but maybe it isn't just that. Well written, and the Annunaki are intriguing. I'd like to find out more about them and the Sumerians. Love the art work too.

FlourishAnyway from USA on March 06, 2014:

I definitely know what you're referring to with hectic schedules. Years ago, I took a job partly because it was 12 miles from my house and I could easily commute. Then the work situation changed at the company and it required me to travel an hour through bumper to bumper traffic (on good days when construction or weather didn't interfere). Then I got a better job with the same company traveling overnight across the nation on short notice. One summer I spent 6 weeks with virtually no home time except weekends. I missed a lot of time while my elementary school-aged child was growing up and eventually decided that wasn't any kind of life, no matter the money and perks.

You have a creative way of looking at situations, unique terminology, and those collage are amazing.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

Thank you so much for your thoughts and comments Daniel. We are both on the same wavelength and Its always great to read share your articles. We do live in exciting times. I simply must find time to read more of your articles.

somethgblue from Shelbyville, Tennessee on March 06, 2014:

Since we know our thoughts are energy projected into the Universe, then it stands to reason that if enough people produce the same or similar thoughts we can create a new paradigm.

From my perspective, I think it all revolves around revealing the truth of the past so we won't be deceived by those mistakes we have made and can formulate a paradigm based on unconditional love, acceptance and peace.

The Annunaki were removed from this planet for a purpose, because they abused and manipulated the natives on it and changed the course of our evolution. They too have been quarantined as we have and until we can settle our own affairs we have no business engaging them.

Without a doubt time is speeding up, you can notice it everyday, if you pay attention. We can't possibly notice the Earth slowing down in its orbit just as we can't feel the increase in the Earth Wobble but we can notice the changes it produces to our planet.

In the very near future it will be obvious and that is where you and I play an important role in providing answers to those that might panic!

Keep writing and I'll keep reading, thanks again.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

Hi Ruby thank you for your compliments on the images. I like to express my concepts through imagery, since I mostly think in Pictures, not words.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

I love your comment and am glad it was though provoking for you. Its for me just as difficult to understand how 'time' has an effect on our biorhythms. I like speculating.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

Our concepts of around Time is not often questioned, because we are so programmed by our clocks. Native people who live by following the rhythms of the natural world are more at peace with their world and with themselves. Thanks for your comment Cecilie.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

Glad you liked it DDE. I do sometimes wonder if my contemplations get me anywhere.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

What a great comment. Thank you Harish. After posting this article we had a major power cut in Cape Town and a great part of South Africa. A lot of business came to a halt, including us! What a great experience! Instead of working we chatted with people in our street and did some gardening, and that on the workday! How is that for a coincident.

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

Ha Ha so I I wondered what you would say. Its way past my bedtime when I read your comment. 2 in the morning! Crazy, I never seem to have enough time!

Nadine May (author) from Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on March 06, 2014:

Thanks Ann glad you liked my art. I do a lot of graphic art for our publishing house like all the book covers. I do have an art background but from long ago. Today I work mainly with Photoshop.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on March 06, 2014:

I must say that i feel time is zooming by. Your hub makes me ponder, " What if? " There is much to decipher here. I do not understand much of what you write about, but i do believe that the earth is changing and we could be moving at a heightened speed. I find your hubs most interesting Nadine. your artwork is beautiful and mysterious....

Jo Alexis-Hagues from Lincolnshire, U.K on March 06, 2014:

Interesting and thought-provoking article. My husband and I are always commenting on how swiftly time flies, I simply put this down to getting older and busier, however, after reading this I'm thinking, yeh...but what if we are indeed moving at an accelerated rate of speed which is affecting our state of consciousness. Anything that get me thinking is good, although most of it goes way over my head I enjoy the read. :)

Cecile Portilla from West Orange, New Jersey on March 06, 2014:

This is a different perspective on life. Makes you want to ask if other things that we thought were not achievable are really within reach. If I am interpreting this correctly, this suggests that we can adapt to anything or any state including physical and emotional discomfort . Very interesting!

The hectic live of many individuals can be difficult to cope with at times and this hub is so meaningful with lots to work out in ones mind.

Nadine, this hub is very thought provoking and at the same time puts up a question before all of us - why this mad rush after things that we have no count of moments in our minds ? In all fairness, can we declare a day spent with such madness a happy and worthwhile day ? It seems that our life is running like a film before an alien audience and we are not feeling our lives at all. It looks like mere acting and nothing of substance and really a pitiable existence ! This life is not just for working, waking, sleeping day and day out. It is also about experiencing, feeling, enjoying and relishing every bit of it. We prepare a meal and then taste it and relish it. It happens sometimes that the meal is not to our taste and we somehow swallow it or even discard it. Should we not evaluate our days in the same manner ? After having gone through a hectic day and going to bed, we should ask ourselves whether the day was pleasing, satisfying, meaningful and happy. And that no regret is in our mind that we could have spent the day more fruitfully and in a more satisfying manner. This way, we would be able to catch the moments in their flight and life would not then be a fleeting experience only for us. Life would then be more meaningful to us and maybe with our passion to savor life, we'll some day find something of substance. This hub is so fantastic and provides so much food for thought that I love to read it again and again to savor it wholly. Thanks and voted up. :-)

Nadine, you are one deep-thinker and I'm afraid it is much too early in the morning for me to tackle this subject. LOL I will say this....people don't seem to be able to slow their lives down. Everyone is in a hurry and they are missing the most important things in life because of it. Thanks for your thoughts, which I will not be considering for the rest of the day thanks to you. :)

An interesting concept, Nadine. I don't fully understand all of it but it's made me think. Your artwork is outstanding; were you artschool trained or did this just evolve from your creative spirit?

Fascinating! Ann
