maybe no pick is needed when time is regarded as deviation from expectation and hence as a measure of entropy.
There is a low-contact micro-culture of Amazon-Indians having no concept of time whatsoever. They cannot make sense of the concept, because they are very close to what we call 'one with nature'. Living since many generations in their tiny territory, there is nothing left that could cause deviation from expectation. Their language, one might say, has anticipated their environment, i.e. the phenomena. What then should time be good for?
When very little happens (very little deviation from expectation) time creeps along. We modern time-addicts can hardly stand such situations.
When much remains to be arranged before close of office, time begins to fly.
When too much remains to be arranged before close of office, things are getting chaotic, meaning that it is no longer obvious in which way to act, because things are becoming less 'thingy'.
Next, a Neanderthal man (don't ask me where to get one) substituting another player in a soccer team would fail to understand what's going on here, for he would merely see people dressed in different colors rushing all over the field, forth and back, sometimes ahead of a single (how stupid!) leather bag, sometimes behind. To him soccer would appear as psychologically alarming behavior.
And finally, let's try to mentally get into the midst of an earthquake of force 9 on the Richter scale: pipes exploding from walls, windows crashing, book shelves rocking across the room spilling their contents; floors and ceilings bending like rubber before breaking into parts; abysses opening up and closing in the streets, swallowing cars, trees and pedestrians; fire everywhere and whole buildings collapsing to the ground; causality and gravity suspended; above, below, left, right, forward, backward, fast and slow having lost any meaning. No phenomena, no things, no existence anymore - only change, pure event, pure deviation from expectation, the explosion of time!
