This series purports to reveal a process called “hacking time”, i.e. reprogramming one’s relationship with time through the strategic manipulation of behavior from within the informational systems that reflect the flow of time, somehow intervening in the underlying causal flow of events within these systems, thereby enabling one to rise above the accepted flow. Positing a behavioral system capable of this is not as daunting a task as one would assume, given our flirtations with prime numbers and the chemical elements along the way bringing us to this point…

In his 1972 book Ulysses on the Liffey, critic and Joyce ...
