"the clock has the effect of disassociating time from human events and thus nourishes the belief in an independent world of mathematically measurable sequences. Moment to moment, it turns out, is not God's conception, or nature's. It is man conversing with himself about and through a piece of machinery he created. .... [with the invention of the clock], eternity ceased to serve as a measure and focus of human events. ..... [In a world of clocks and time keepers], we have learned an irreverence toward the sun and the seasons, for in a world made up of seconds and minutes, the authority of nature is superseded. "
[Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death]
