We are rarley free, the greater part of the time we live outside ourselves, hardly perceiving anything of ourselves but our own ghost, a colorless shadow which pure duration projects into homogeneous space. Hence [...] we live for the external world rather than for ourselves; we speak rather than think, we 'are acted’ rather than act ourselves. To act freely is to recover possession of oneself, and to get back into pure duration.

Henri Bergson (excerpt from: Time and Free Will: An Essay on the Immediate Data of Consciousness, 1889).

It takes a minute to count a minute
and the time spent counting doesn’t count.

Stefan Themerson (1960)
