/meen/ is a minor mode to hide clocks replacing them with fish icons.
It is useful to escape [[https://libcom.org/article/tyranny-clock-george-woodcock][the tyranny of the clock]] and live a life not
knowing the precise artificial time.
As Lewis Mumford pointed out, clocks are probably the key invention of
the machine age, and are very hard to escape. They show up in very
many places in Emacs (think the output of /ls -l/, dired buffers, git
commit logs, email, IM, logs, etc.). If you are trying to live a life
free of the precise artificial time produced by the clock, these can
all trip you up. /meen/ helps you by finding clocks in your buffers
and replacing them with cute fish icons.
Toggle meen mode in all buffers using /M-x global-meen-mode/. Or,
toggle meen mode in the current buffer using /M-x meen-mode/.
Clocks will be replaced by Unicode fish icons (🐟). You will need a
font that supports the Unicode fish icon. If you would rather use some
other character, customize the /meen-char/ variable.
* Why is it called /meen/?
Natural time can be told by the movement of the Sun in the morning and
by the stars at night. /meen/ (மீன்) is a Tamil word meaning both /star/
and /fish/. It is thought that this is an ancient homophonic
connection going all the way back to the undeciphered Indus valley
