YouTube Summer Special – Life is a Time Series!

Time is running – it never stands still.

We live in a space-time continuum, a one-dimensional time, a three-dimensional space and a four-dimensional structure. All this is inseparably connected with each other. Time can run sometimes faster, sometimes slower, depending on gravity, but it runs, unstoppable. Our life is determined by it. Often we do not notice it in everyday life, because everything is just as it always is. But then there are moments in life, very special moments, marked by a time stamp, which will have a lasting effect on our lives today or perhaps tomorrow. Then it is present again, the time that runs unstoppably and what great significance striking points on the timeline can have for us.

Time stamps on the timeline, are a logbook of life, for people, machines, stock exchanges, for everything. Nothing can escape this logbook. It is written for everyone, for living beings and things. That is the theme of HAKOM, time series – therefore our mission statement is: "Life is a Time Series!". And it's a fascinating subject that we have enthusiastically made ours, for over 30 years.

Summer, sun, beach, time series in front of, above and within us. Waves on the beach, seemingly chaotic, but they follow a time series. A look at the southern sky, every night it is slightly different, but it also follows a time series. And we ourselves also keep an inner logbook that records our own personal time series: Sleep rhythm, breathing rate or pulse, for example. In our YouTube Summer Special, we take a very special look at time series. Time series that vacationers can observe from a deck chair on the beach, at dinner under a starry sky, or from an airplane.

Be part of HAKOM's Summer Special, it's going to be exciting. In nine clips, we present the world of time series under the summer sky. Every Wednesday at 14:00 CEST we will broadcast a new episode of "Life is a Time Series" in July and August 2023, also available in our playlist.

HAKOM wishes you an eventful summer vacation 2023, "And don't forget, life is a Time Series!"
