Time slaves and a warning from the gorilla

Lately, I've been coming across a lot of stories about "peaches" by Michael Ende.

Many of you may already be familiar with the title "Time Slaves".

To quote from wikipedia without spoiling the peach


In a city reminiscent of Rome, time is stolen from the people by gray men who call themselves the Time Savings Bank, and all the leeway disappears from everyone's mind.

But the story of Momo, a girl with the mysterious power to listen to her friends, even if they are poor, and give them back their confidence, and then go on an adventure

In the meantime, I came across an interesting book that also mentions peaches, so I'll quote part of it here.

A warning from the gorilla: "Human society, there is something wrong here

The idea is that time is a cost and can be translated into money.

However, as a result of saving time through the distribution of goods and the sophistication of information technology, we have made our own time, which we have gained, equally subject to efficiency improvements.

Think about how to spend efficiently in order to maximize the satisfaction of one's desires.

Watch movies, watch sports, go shopping, and eat lavishly. Think about how much you can do what you want to do with the money you earn.

But it's the same mindset as the time I saved, so it will never be fulfilled.

Not only that, the more time you have on your hands, the more lonely you become and the more time you have on your hands.

That's because humans are not made to spend time alone in the first place.


He lived a life based on reciprocity, giving his time to his friends and receiving time from them as well.

Happiness is felt with companions, and trust is strengthened not by money or words, but by time lived together.

The world is now filled with a lot of hostility and the number of lonely people is increasing.

It's created by the economic concept of time.

Isn't it necessary to turn it into a social time and restore the time of connecting life?

Like the gorilla, I believe that hostility can be dissolved by the time we are together.

One of the most important issues I see in running Mogic is "the sense of fulfillment that people feel today".

If there's something in the company today that makes you forget about time, then I think it's a pass.
