Time: A Prison or a Blessing?

Time, or the version we subscribe to, is undoubtedly useful but is it necessary? It would be foolish to argue that we should have no system of temporal measurement, but I do not think it is unreasonable to question if the current system is necessary or superior to all others. Of course, society would run into some real problems if we had no way to pose the question: “when?”. However, why must it be so rigid and inflexible? Every ticking and tocking second hangs on our minds like chains.
