Punctuality is a belief as wrong and narcissistic as geo-centrism was the pre-Copernican.
With insistent often feel that the world revolves around us and really this is so: rotate around us.
Since we can only take seriously what we observe, interpret and perceive on our own, we are in the geographical center of our lives everything we see around us.It could not be otherwise!
It happened to the old days when they believed that the universe revolves around the Earth.
If we observe, interpret and perceive by our own means, as a human species, we are in the universal center of our existence: everything we see around us.It could not be otherwise mere!, BUT ... as Copernicus and his followers, our ancients were wrong because we turn around the Sun and, in turn, the solar system is not the center of the universe.
All this I was thinking as I waited for my office brought a citizen accused of murder, to make him a psychological evaluation.
The date had been set for the ten minute brought police officers to arrest one hour and eleven minutes after the agreement.
Of course they did not comment on the lateness but acted as if they had arrived exactly on time 10:00.
The question I ask is: Why seemed to me that the officers were tardy in bringing the investigated one hour and eleven minutes after the agreement?
It could not be otherwise! My brain narcissistic pre-Copernican thought he saw, from my fernando-centrism, which the police work as my time. However, this is not so: hundreds of people come and go to the influx of multiple gravitational forces.
Conclusion: Punctuality is a myth.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): La puntualidad es un mito.
