This song was inspired by reading Edward T. Halls’ book “The Dance of Life: The Other Dimension of Time”
First published in 1983, this book studies how people are tied together and yet isolated by hidden threads of rhythm and walls of time. Time is treated as a language, organizer, and message system revealing people’s feelings about each other and reflecting differences between cultures.
In this book Hall explores how different cultures approach and integrate the concept of time into their lives. He explores in depth how the cultural differences can impact peoples interactions with each other, as well as how we can be more aware of the cultural differences as it pertains to temporal awareness.
This book explains how people experience time differently and how they treat it differently, in good measure based on culture.
