These essays draw upon and integrate the perspectives of general semantics, systems theory, and media ecology, bringing them to bear upon a diversity of topics that include the future of consciousness, identity and meaning, the Ten Commandments, media literacy, The Lord of the Rings, and our relationship to time. Throughout this volume, Strate grapples with the question of what it means to be human, and what the prospects may be for humanitys continued survival. As he concludes in the title essay of this book: As a species, we are binders of time, bound up by our biases of time- we are moved by our consciousness of time, as we tell time, and as we tell ourselves that only time will tell- as we play for time, and as we pray, as we pray for time.
