During the Second World War, I remember the destruction of a family watch, and the loss of another. I was four years old. My parents would ask me to «Go and see what the time is» on the public clock in the nearest square. My “mission” was “to tell the time.” It was very important to me.
For me, the watch is the most heroic object in the fight against obscurantism. With the invention of the watch, no religious leader can ever oppose or appropriate the rule of time.
Watches could get smaller and smaller, who knows? And maybe implanted in the body?
