Captain Heemskerck walked out of his cabin to the deck and watched the gold city he had been searching for all his life. He was prone to suffer from an undiagnosed perception-disorder relating to colors.
A neurologist may have opined that some of his perceptive-neurons located in the brain between his ears were communicating with neurons located in the color perception cortex.
The captain did not know or care. However, the familiar discomfort – pain and dryness in eyes, a constant ringing in his ears, a burning sensation in throat disturbed his reverie. He saw different hues of gold on the port city and swirls of light whirled around it. The colors were telling him to be careful as this place could be extremely dangerous.
The captain was also a student of philosophy and the experience reminded of the axiom – the time stops when we stop. We are not in time. We are the time.
