Earthrium vol.19 "Earth Time"

If we promise to "do lunch at noon on Sunday" or "have a meeting at 17:00 on the tenth," everyone can assemble at the correct time. There are 365 days in a year, 24 hours in a day, 60 seconds in a minute. This is the concept of time that we take for granted as underpinning human existence. But it is only humans who know of this concept: other animals, and plants, are totally oblivious to it. In the Edo period the Japanese lived to a different sort of time to now. The concept of time is not immutable, and in this edition of Earthrium, we discuss time in some of its many manifestations.
