The ticking of a clock is a powerful sound. Symbolically, it relates to time, a concept that may feel straightforward to most of us - the minute split into seconds, the hour into minutes, the day into hours, and so on - but really it isn't. Take the time to think about it: if present is the most real perception of time, almost all of what we perceive as the present is already past The tickling of a clock also represents a sort of audible version of the Yin and the Yang principle. The beauty of the ticking not only comes from the sound itself, but also from the quality of the silence that happens between the ticks. Silence is a relative concept though, as absolute silence does not exist.
