Reset :: The Doomsday Clock

Only 2.5 Minutes to go

The Illusion of Time will soon disappear ... Tick Tock


Doomsday Clock Ticks Half-Minute Closer to Midnight in Historic Move   Live Science - January 26, 2017
For the first time in its history, the Doomsday Clock, an imaginary timepiece that represents humanity's proximity to annihilation through mechanisms of our own design, has moved 30 seconds closer to calamity, with the minute hand now at 2 and a half minutes to midnight, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists announced this morning (Jan. 26). The minute hand's new position for 2017 was determined by the Bulletin's Science and Security Board in consultation with a team of experts including 15 Nobel laureates. They last reset the clock on Jan. 22, 2015, at 3 minutes to midnight, with midnight representing global calamity.




Tick Tock The Doomsday Clock


Sometimes a metaphor is more than a metaphor, and symbolism is truth.

Doomsday Clock Set at 3 Minutes to Midnight   Live Science - January 22, 2015
The world is "3 minutes" from doomsday. That's the grim outlook from board members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Frustrated with a lack of international action to address climate change and shrink nuclear arsenals, they decided today (Jan. 22) to push the minute hand of their iconic Doomsday Clock to 11:57 p.m. It's the first time the clock hands have moved in three years; since 2012, the clock had been fixed at 5 minutes to symbolic doom, midnight.
