In addition to clock and event time, there are other possible ways to view the passage of time. Dictated by religion, Saunders, Slyke and Vogel 8 (2004) discuss how Hinduism and Buddhism emphasize the meaninglessness of the passage of time as well as the cyclical nature of time. This diminishes the importance of punctuality and clock time. These authors also proposed the concept of harmonic time, which is characterized by highly valuing the time of oneself and others. This allows individuals to use time as a better way to increase harmony between people, society and nature. Clearly, more research is needed to further investigate these temporal views.
