Fragmental Timing

My mind lies shattered on the floor
Fabergé egg I think in pain
There was a mechanism in glass
Alas the escapement escapes
And time cannot be watched again

So, is the mind a mechanism or the artifact of a mechanism? And if so, is time an artifact of mechanisms used to measure the passage of events?

The main problem with time is that it must be quantised, and yet seems continuous. But if it is quantised, then how can one event lead to another?

And yet, here we are. What a strange world!

That's quite true. I think on some level they must be the same sort of stuff.
