Labyrinths of Time
Backgrounder for yesterday's post: Labyrinths are not puzzles in that they do not have any branches with dead ends. They lead from the outside to the center and back. They can be found in such diverse cultures and locations as Spain, India, Peru, Anasazi, and Egypt . (Labyrinth of The Whispering Grove)
I'm a bit new to the whole Labyrinth thing, but its popularity is not too surprising I suppose given its universality.
Given the labyrinth's strong physical component, and the ability for it to engage one's attention for its course, it can also be seen to be a time piece of sorts. The time it takes to trace one's finger, or other wise physically experience going on the labyrinth's path.
While individuals' paces differ somewhat, there may be an distinct average. At least there may be more of a distinct average than one would find in the more psychic experience of reading / understanding a text, viewing/understanding a graphic, etc...
