Don't Waste Your Time

Last weekend, I watched this movie from Netflix "In Time" wherein time is the new currency to spend, and I have realized what if this is the future in store for the human race? Well, I can't even imagine myself living in such time and age.

Attached is the trailer of the movie from YouTube, just in case you wanted a glimpse of it.

In the movie, human's age stops at 25, and would then start to live with a timer on his/ her left wrist displaying the time to live, in the same way the time you have to spend because in this era time is the new money. People worked and paid daily, time as salary added to the meter attached at the left wrist, and of course minus the tax. However, there is a twist. Time is the currency in every single way to survive in this world. You have to spend time for food and groceries, shelter and bills. Pay a bus ride of time worth 2 hours, 3 minutes of call at the phone booth requires a minute of time, pay a glass of beer in the bar with time, loans would be paid by time plus 3 days of interest. All commodities are worth of time, deducted from your time meter. If you can't make a good use of it and if you can't hide it, you'll die sooner than you know.

The rich being born in silver platter will have more time as inheritance, even gamble while spending time, they have lived a slow and easy life. Meanwhile, the poor are secluded from the rich, because the latter would live each and every day cramming for time. Time for the poor is important, highly valued and sometimes hunted down. Like what was said in the trailer, "the rich can live forever, the poor die young."

Just like any currency, there are also thieves who would rob people of their time. It's like the money we have in this generation, people scam us for money. In the movie, you can't display or disclose how much time you have or else gangsters and the crook would flock to kill you robbing your time.

It's a scary scenario, and who would love living in this era of human existence.

My Thoughts

While watching this movie I have come to a simple hypothesis that this kind of era in the movie would best fit the cashless society that most religious people fear about. In my journey with crypto and sharing the idea about it with the most random people, I have experienced some apprehensive and pessimistic remarks about cryptocurrencies and even mobile/ internet banking for the reason that these are evil practices.

And, it's true. There can be lots of evil everywhere. We should not dismiss the thought that evil can be in the home, in the streets, in school, at work, in the government, and even in the church. I mean, cryptos and the new forms of money transactions involves money and cash, why single it out as cashless? And, evil?

We can use these means to earn and eventually acquire financial freedom and the chance to help others. Our online means of earning are blessings, and just any other sources of income we have in the real world, we must treat everything with diligence, self- control and keep the balance in every aspect of our life.

Anyway, it's a very huge matter to debate. Let's skip that part.

If we start giving, sharing, and paying forward anything - time, goods, and our efforts, for the good purpose of inspiring and uplifting others. Then, we are living cashless.

We can overcome evil by the goodness of our intentions.

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for reading!

I watched the film before and it made me chase my breath, even made me think what if it happens in the real world, lol!

As to crypto and society going cashless, I think it is inevitable, and we cannot get away with scams and evil people who seem to enjoy robbing other people's goods, so we need to be careful too. And yes to helping others along the way :)

Awww. Napanood ko yan, way back 2015 ko yata napanood with my friends. Naiyak ako diyan yung sa bus, tapos magyayakapan na sila pero ubos na yung time. Hindi umabot. And then, yung mga taong mahihirap naaabutan na sa daan ng kamatayan. Just imagine looking of how many minutes you have. Nakakastress yun. Siguro hindi nalang ako matutulog if ever. 🤣

Sounds like an interesting movie to watch. I’ll check if it’s available on my Netflix too. Even in our reality we have a saying that ‘time is money’, so I guess we’re not far from that reality, although having the watch with remaining time displayed seems kinda scary.

True. Must be a lifetime of anxiety for me to have such kind of time meter on my body.. I can't spend any of the time, I guess.

Lately I don't even have time to watch movies. My free time is spent planting in my pots or anything else. It also helps that my TV signal only has movies on repeat week after week. I think leisure is what makes people have time to think about harming others. If they would occupy their minds in doing useful things there wouldn't be so much evil around.

I have not seen this movie, but the premise of it would seem to make for a horrible world and a horrible existence. And I say this as someone who has means, and would therefore (in this scenario) have more time.

As for how this relates to crypto, I suppose depending on one's perspective regarding the opportunities in certain parts of the world it offers (such as in countries where there is no viable stock market, or opportunity to advance economically), crypto seems to offer a better chance for ordinary people to get ahead.

Interesting.

Somehow here in the Philippines, crypto is far from mass adoption, however earning through it is always possible. The only problem is the perception of some people regarding crypto. Thanks for yourcomment.

I have watched this movie already and I can say this is one of the best I have watched so far. And it is really breath taking how everyone is trying not to lose their time on their wrist as they will be dead by then.

In another note, it is truly indeed that all the time we have should be used in the most and best way. Let us not waste any of it. No time can be turned back.

I think I've seen that movie. I think there were bad people who stole time from others, it's interesting your final reflection on time. Time has value. But when we are young we don't see it. When we reach a certain age we see time with its true value.

I loved this movie. I saw her a while ago. I have repeated it on several occasions and I never tire of seeing it. Science fiction and these futuristic themes fascinate me. I recommend it 100%.

I wouldn't at all like to live a life in which we pay with our time. Although today we use part of our time to earn the money with which we pay. The possibility that a thief could steal our time is scary. I will look for the movie to watch it.

And thank you so much for renewing my sponsorship ♡

I will try to watch the movie since the story seems unique but if I will thinking about it in real life. Oh please no. It seems dangerous and the scariest. Your life depends on a time left wrist. It's so unfair to the poor people the most pitiful and whom the worst struggling one. 🥺

I totally agree to the last sentence of this artucle which we can overcome any evil by doing good things to our fellow humans.. Doing good things don't have prize anyway so we are free to execute it no matter what. time and no matter how we will do it.

I wonder how the world will be if we live cashless and just like the movie, instead of money, we will have time to pay for everything. I can't imagine this one lol. But yeah, even without money if we know how to share and give back to others, we can have a happy life.
