To Live Without Dead Time

What does it mean to you?

To Live Without Dead Time
Charles Peterson

This article is available in:

To live without dead time means to embody a great refusal, to find pleasure in struggle, to transform every moment of existence into a repudiation of the consumerist nightmare and an affirmation of revolutionary possibility. A semester, a year, a decade without Big Macs, Frappucinos and World of Warcraft but overflowing with midnight adventures of blackspotted billboards, guerrilla gardening and spectacular synchronized global memewar actions. Imagine if a huge number of us start living in this way, turning daily life itself into a form of resistance that re-enchants the city and reawakens the promise of a people’s insurrection. The way forward is through this kind of radical play.

Here's how I live without dead time. here's what it means for me.

0. Always be learning. Reading books. Talking with people.
1. No TV. No radio. No magazines. No newspapers.
2. Writing and publishing books. I wrote and published one on fundraising last year and I'm writing one and publishing one this year.
3. Writing on 750words. This online journaling keeps me sane. (and it's free)
4. Making Android apps to help people who work for charity.
5. Writing e-newsletters to help people who work for nonprofits.
6. Speaking, teaching workshops and creating webinars to help people who want to change the world.
7. Making art and teaching art and learning about art.
8. Writing poetry and publishing it too.
9. Fundraising for a small nonprofit client.
10. Blogging on two blogs to help people change the world. Asking people to look at the dominant paradigm and how they fit into it.
11. Participating in chats on Twitter to help people change the world.
12. Talking with my family and friends each week and staying connected to their lives.
13. Cooking our own food and choosing to opt out of all internet ads.
