      I once accidentally sat for 30 min instead of my usual 15 min because my timer wasn’t working properly. After a while of feeling weird and uncomfortable, I finally gave in and looked at my phone. Then I realized why my butt hurt.

        The "Butt Clock" is very traditional in Zen! Monkey Mind vs. Monkey Butt ...

          Interestingly, monkey butts are highly evolved for sitting, much more so than human butts. Google “ischial callosities.” But I digress [emoji85]

                I've watched recently that when I'm in a hurry I want to stay more sitting and not care about the time. But when I have plenty of time I think more about the time of sitting. Maybe the former is an attitude of escape? The latter has a more measurement attitude.
