What will TT's true time be for you?

Is TrueTyme eye-catching, ice-breaking mind-body "math-art"? Or is it a FitBit-enhancing "timewhole", one especially created for the natural-high minded? Either way, TrueTyme's localized sun & moon time (and mood) tracking -- and especially under worst case conditions, is full of colorful feature-rich surprises.

While TrueTyme can be useful to folks recovering in Intensive Care Units, or even in solitary confinement in prisons, our typical user is someone who works in a windowless job environment. Or just all day indoors. So if you do, you may want to know that working without a window nearby is now known to be a factor in all kinds of circadian rhythm problems. Things like infertility, obesity, depression. If so, try working near a window, one where you get to see the sun's journey in the sky during the day as best you can, the way farm workers do. But if you can't -- and most of us cannot, you can always consider trying out something like one of these...

1) You can seek to keep track of where you are in the day by using Time.is. It is described as the world's most accurate web-based digital clock. Of course, sooner or later you still might suffer, but at least you will always be exactly on time.


2) You can use a very lovely wall clock called The Present, which does NOT show you where you are in the day NOR the night, NOR even where you are in the week NOR the month. But it does show you where you are in the year. So you still might not avoid one or more circadian rhythm-related problems, but at least you can show your colleagues a unique calendar elegantly described and marketed as a clock, one that is much endorsed by MOMA.


3) You can try TrueTyme for a while.

TT's potential benefits beyond enhanced feelings of well-being are not yet scientifically proven, but those are intriguing possibilities. One day if there is enough of a push from sufferers of circadian rhythm related ills, perhaps chronobiology scientists will do true time research. For now though, some TT users here and there are giving us details of their own color-coded MoodTyme mood journaling & analysis results and/or other other feedback. E.g., here is what avant garde artist and TrueTyme power-user, Alison Pilorz, told us about her own experiences using several of TrueTyme's features...

You can jump into a purchase of TrueTyme Full Features Forever here. But to better orient yourself so you can get more from its true time displays of sun and moon time, and other features like circadian and circalunar meditation, plus MoodTyme tracking and analysis of your moods, etc., we suggest you first take advantage of our free one week trial -- at the end of which you get to freely keep 1st level features.

Furthermore, if you prefer to know more details about TT before living with true time for a week, here from the Better Tymes Project, developer of TrueTyme, is a TTymely FAQ about our "moving forwards by moving back in time" smart clock app for Android phones, tablets and smartwatches. (And, hopefully one day soon, also for Apple and WEAR platforms -- as soon as we can find the right volunteers.)

Clock And Calendar FAQ

What makes TrueTyme so unique and special?

A “timepiece” just tells you conventional time. OTOH,¬†TrueTyme is a Natural Cycles Synchronizer “timewhole” so unique that it has a patent.

TrueTyme has so seven clock modes and many features. How should first-time users get started?

TrueTyme consists of several different ways of getting more in touch with Nature’s cycles and also your own, including KinderTyme, SunTyme With MoonTyme, and MoonTyme With SunTyme. For first-time users, the best way to get started is KinderTyme, which uses a sun in the morning (and rest of the day) sun-like symbol and a moon-phase one at night to display the passage of day and night. For most users, its sun in the day and moon at night displays are sufficient to tell you what you want to know about the passage of day and night. So there is a good chance that KinderTyme might be the TrueTyme clock mode you will want to use.

On the other hand, advanced user’s can also use various other TrueTyme clock modes to see in greater detail both the passage of each day’s solar cycle from sunrise through sunset and night cycle from nightfall to day break. advanced users may also want to see the passage of the lunar cycle when the moon is above and then below the horizon, sometimes in the day and sometimes at night.

If KinderTyme is sufficient to tell users about the passage of day and night, why do users move up TrueTyme’s ladder of clock modes to SunTyme With MoonTyme or MoonTyme With SunTyme, etc.?

The moon takes twenty-four hours and fifty minutes to circle the earth, not twenty-four hours. Which is why the moon is sometimes seen above the horizon at night, sometimes seen above the horizon in the day, sometimes below the horizon in the day and sometimes below the horizon at night. That makes keeping track of the moon more and more difficult as the month goes from New Moon to Full Moon to New Moon again. And yet knowing your moon time as well as your sun time can be very important. And especially if you are a woman because chronobiology studies show that a woman’s menstrual cycle affects her circadian rhythm — and circadian rhythm affects her menstrual cycle.

Is it true that often looking at TrueTyme can help users feel more spiritual?

One day a month, the new moon is in the sky all day. A half a month later, the full moon is in the sky all night. And during the rest of each month, the moon is partly in the sky in the day and partly in the sky at night — with the rest of the time each day the being moon below the horizon. That is very confusing to most people who live in urban life-styles. But no longer confusing to TrueTyme users. And even when the moon is above the horizon in bright sunlight.

Many users add that seeing the “dancing” of the sun and moon in real-time gives them a lift, and that seeing that “harmony of the spheres” dance of sun and moon in MediTyme fast-time mode, especially with TrueTyme’s music on, gives them a sense of spiritual as well as earthly well-being.

Who are likely to become TrueTyme users?

First, everyone isolated from awareness of the passage of sun time, e.g., those working in a windowless cubicle, or working a late shift. Because they are at greater risk of depression, obesity and worse. But things can be even worse for women. Many studies show a woman with a disrupted body clock has a greater chance of becoming infertile, as well as having other female-related problems.

Are you claiming that TrueTyme has medical benefits?

No. On the other hand, feedback indicates that seeing TrueTyme’s carefully designed displays of where a user is in the passage of sun time and moon time natural cycles can give her or him feelings of momentary¬† happiness and longer moments of well-being. Because TrueTyme syncs us to Nature’s circadian rhythm and lunar cycles.

Speaking of “carefully designed”, why is the TrueTyme dial arranged the way it is?

To maximize a user’s mind-body connection with the flows and ebbs of sun and moon, TrueTyme uses a strikingly different outer dial arrangement of the numerals I through XII. It is a daily and nightly reminder of what all of the rest of life on Earth knows — including little children: From a sun time natural cycle point of view, natural time consists of the first, second, third… up through twelfth twelfth daytime “seasonal hours”from sunrise to sunset, and then the twelve twelfths of nightly passage of the sun from sunset to sunrise. TrueTyme’s outer dial is also used to calibrate the two cycles passage of moon time, first above and then below the horizon. Plus, by tapping its Calendar icon, TrueTyme’s dial is now also used to show the passage of time through the seasons of the year, beginning and ending on the day of the spring equinox.

    Here is another goodie, this one from Christopher Dicky about the giant sun dial church in Rome that Michelangelo designed… http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2005/07/24/turning-to-god-s-time.html . We think Mike would have loved our TrueTyme two kinds of natural time clock and more. What do YOU think?

    We just found this too little known Daily Beast article from March 3, 1996… http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/1996/03/10/timing-is-everything.html .
