What is a long time? What is a short time? What is too much time? What is not enough time? The answers to these questions are largely dictated by their context. In terms of human biology, 100 years is a long time. After all, most of us do not live 100 years – though the number of centenarians is growing. In societal terms, 100 years, depending on your point of view, might be a lot of time. Certainly, we have seen massive technological change and consequent impact on society over the course of a century. We have grown in many senses, yet our philosophical underpinnings may not have changed as much as we think. So, in this sense, some folks might not think 100 years is a lot of time or 1000 years for that matter.

Let’s indulge ourselves in a quick thought exercise: Imagine you take a daily walk, for exercise. You walk for 45 minutes, along a busy thoroughfare. Additionally, let’s assume this walk is taken midday, when there is plenty of sun. Based on the facts as stated above, does it make sense to wear a wide brimmed hat? I would think so; we are told to protect ourselves from the sun. Does it make sense to wear sunglasses? I think most of us would agree that makes sense too. Proper sunglasses make it easier to see when it is sunny and help protect our eyes (if they block out UVA and UVB rays.)
