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.)


In one sentence, what is TrueTyme time-keeping all about?

As if they were pharaohs or priests of ancient Egypt, TrueTyme users get to know the sacred time-wise passage of the sun and the moon, relative to and from the point in the sky always directly above them — AND ALSO THE SACRED and SECRET time-wise passage of the sun and moon, relative to and from the point in the undersky of the underworld always below them.

What does the central part of the TrueTyme clock show?

In KinderTyme and in SunTyme modes, the center portion of the TrueTyme clock uses a patented astrology-logical method of display to show the passage of daytime from sunrise to sunset AND of nighttime from sunset to sunrise. (The central portion of the TrueTyme clock in an astro-logical way also shows the passage of MoonTyme, both when the moon is above AND when the moon is below the horizon).

What does the crescent part of the TrueTyme clock show?

In KinderTyme and in SunTyme modes, TrueTyme adds a crescent-shaped method of display to provide more detailed information about the passage of natural “circadian time” so that the passing of day and night can also be seen as an eternal Mobius Strip of Time: an ancient as well as futuristic method of natural time-keeping with night turning into day during dawn; day before, at and after noon; day turning into night during dusk; night before, at and after midnight; night turning into day during dawn; and on an on. More about time as a Mobius Strip is found in our Mobius Gnosis pamphlet. (TrueTyme’s crescent method is also used to show how moon time’s mysterious twists and turns also can be observed as changing over a period of twenty-four hours and fifty minutes in a Mobuus way similar to the underlying nature of sun time).

Why did you arrange the hour numbers on TrueTyme’s outer dial with 1 & 12 and I and XII on the bottom instead of on the top?

This is the most frequent question we are asked, perhaps of some importance rarely by farmers,almost always by urban dwellers. So maybe this question is related to the chronobiology fact that urban dwellers’ biological clocks tend to be out of sync with Nature’s rhythms and cycles. In any case… Conventional clocks and watches only display corporate standard/mechanical time, which is the man-made measure of time introduced when mechanical clocks began to replace sun dials and water clocks. By comparison,TrueTyme adds two kinds of natural time to the time-awareness equation: sun time AND moon time. Both of these are the kinds of natural times that our biological processes need to know about — and which most urban dwellers are not aware not of. See our Science page for more about what can happen when we only think that each new day starts one minute after the middle of the night. After which you are likely to easily appreciate why our dial shows the first hour of the day as the first hour after sunrise and shows the twelfth hour of the day as the last hour of daytime. Same also for first and last real hours of night and nighttime. And also the same for twelfths of the periods of moon time, when the moon is first above and then below the horizon over each cycle of twenty-four hours and fifty minutes.
