Time, In Theory And Practice

According to experts* I know in the fields of theology and temporal metaphysics, Time was originally invented so that everything wouldn't happen at once.

To my own admittedly limited observation and expertise in either of those fields, I'd have to say that Time 1.0 doesn't work. Just this Saturday alone I have enough potential tasks to occupy at least 2 people the whole day. Of course it's possible that some of this is due to a late Spring or possibly the coming of the dreaded Election Year, but the best theory so far is that Elon Musk is right, we're living in a computer simulation and said simulation has a predictable collection of bugs in it. Time is thus not Time 1.0 (released) but actually Time Beta .6 or something. Still in development ya know?

*They say they are, and use long, complicated words to back themselves up. How am I to argue? The climate change people are childlike by comparison.

Addendum: Then again it might just be the time of the season.

Speaking of bugs, a long time ago I had a co-worker who said that the number of bugs in an operating system always stayed the same; they just moved around a lot.
