Re: 1190: "Time"

Now that time is over, after a long Absence, I want to post here again....I activily read this thread until after the great fading, when the journey started...since then, the Outside has taken a grasp of me, and I am ashamed that I could not dwell in the one true Thread any longer.

Re: 1190: "Time"

That then itself becomes noise and may actually discourage some people from making signal. Looks to me like, with OTT self-analysis, wh...

Re: 1190: "Time"

So, we only have 11 Newpix left until we reach the 1.000 (or 35 until 1024, which probably is the bigger event) ...which could be the end of their walk/journey/hike and possibly the end of time itself (yes, has been said before, I´m not just guessing here).
