never succeeding in reaching it. We had to do someting. Well, I sacrified
I just had this incongruous idea when, during holidays, I
rowed on the
Bourget lake. The surrounding quietness.
The flat surface, without ripples, of the
liquid element. Done! My lips partly opened then I heard like isomebody
else murmured it at my ears : ÒTime, stop moving and you, conducive
hours, stop running.Ó Okay, I had understood the message was forme,
personally. I didn't hang on, I had to get down
to work, now, with no delay.
empirical practical experience of mine, time may be stopped. On another
hand, it may be either only slowed down,
or, at the contrary, accelerated... Maybe,
it simply would continue, jogging along, as it does
since the mists of time.
You always run a risk when you decide to do something
out of the main road.
We all felt once this dilemma, managing our own life. That point could
not be contradicted even by the President in
office himself. To stop the time (rather to suspend it...) implicates
a moral responsability nobody can discard. Consequences may be various,
and unexpectable too.
Indeed, I'm not a professional Òtime stopperÓ accepted
by the Guild Chamber but only a casual tester.
But I am a good will man, who has understood the emergency for the good
of the human being, in circumstances as they are at the time of modernity,
of stopping the time. Then we shall proceed at a date we have programmed,
the first day of Spring, from 12 to 12, between 20th et 21st of March 1998.
This very exceptional event will give rise in Paris streets and elsewhere
on the planet to so exceptional demonstrations.We
are fed up with rushing like cattle, always
hurry, without knowing where we are going to. Before frankly entering into
the third millenary, we must stop and think
together about the world we want for tomorrow,
for us and our children.
Waiting for the D-day when the mie will stop, on the first day of Spring
(because this is the kind of day when Mother
Nature holds her breath before giving free rein to creation and life
power of her), we, in this chronicle, are going to
review all we have to think to, expecting such an event, which, to
the best of my knowledge, has never occuredd yet in the story of human
We are goning to try to anticipate all
that may happens in a way not to besurprised. That is:
spite of involving all means the Horsec procedures have planned with
regard to national disasters, orderd by each prefect in each district.
- If the time starts stuttering, koffing and hiccuping,
as a baby.
- If the time, disobeying our orders and the computed sophisticated
device we shall make use of with our
sponsors, continues as usually to pass in accordance with its usual
rythms, with not a one second decay.
- If it stops, precisely, only one second,
how to get back this second and
to reintroduce it in our own life in a positive way, and, if possible,
without noticing and protesting of anybody.
- In due course, in this regular chronicle, we'll tell you precautions
take in case of this time suspension, the safety rules to respect,
