No matter how precise and calculated the desire to break up time into manageable segments, the ever-increasing speed of one’s perceived temporality will render the task both unmanageable and absurd. Of course the lamplighter “no longer [has] a single second for repose”, unlike the Little Prince-puer aeternus who, by virtue of being perfectly on time, can still dwell all he likes in the present.
