I do not understand the title mean? Please explain specifically, can you!

Zlatan Olić on September 22, 2010

thanks for the question pozlp2010...

on the the pic above there is a part of one out of 50 basement halls of the Roman Emperor Diocletian's Palace in Split, Croatia. it was built around the year 300 AD. this is a part of his throne hall which was standing just above. both halls were in the same dimensions.

as you know, all basements are mostly dark, without daylight, or sunlight... so was this one. but whole Palace (nucleus of nowadays Split) was constructed upon the movements of the Sun above the Palace. the Sun means Time and Light. the first human device for measuring the flow of time was the Sun. and the first human sense of measuring the flow of light was the Sun. the Sun was the first human guideline for the measurement of human geographic area, and living space....

lost time (elapsed time) is the time not used in a good way... can you find it? restore it? I think anybody could. we all live in every moment of the thin border between past and future, looking back and glanced ahead... it is important to look, to notice and to see, like a person on the photo. or the photographer himself?

by the way, point from which was built the whole stone and marble Palace, is called Navel of the Sun (Umbiculus Soli)... it tells us very much about the significance of the place where performed the first act in the beginning of construction - related to the motion of the Sun, Roman theology and Cosmogony, religious ceremonials and Diocletian himself - the son of Jupiter and the Supreme Pontiff.
