Is time a tool to read reality with?

Olga Tokarczuk in "Bizarre stories":
"It's not that the word has changed.  
It's us whose brains became so scuffed 
that we don't catch time as we used to."

I like that.  Instead of bitching about the world out there perhaps we should take a closer look at our pathetic and shrinking selves.   Another aspect of the quote that I like is that it leads to time as the element which makes or breaks our well being.  For example the information explosion is really the assault on our sense of time.
