Writing Prompt: Time Piece

Writing Prompt: Time Piece
View the trailer for Time Piece, which is introduced on Brain Pickings as follows:
"The nature and mystery of time is a subject of long-running scientific fascination, but what about its subjective, abstract nature? In 1964, exactly a decade after creating his original Muppets for Sesame Street predecessor Sam + Friends, Jim Henson wrote, produced, directed, and starred in a short experimental film titled Time Piece, exploring in a visceral way the effect time-keeping has on all of us. It premiered on May 6, 1965 at the Museum of Modern Art and was nominated for an Academy Award in 1966."
After viewing the excerpt from the film, write your reaction.  What do you think the creator, Jim Henson, is saying about time?  How do you think of time?
