The watches of Niveau élevé revolutionize the division of time with the invention of the cypher glass and represent the division of time, the valuation, the Self above the plane of the hands, thus symbolically reversing our attitude to time.
Every glance at our watch reminds us that the time is our time. We are no longer slaves to our external circumstances, projects, compulsions and obligations. We are the instance that observes and enjoys the happenings in peace and quiet. At the foreground of our time is the unmoving, the self; in the background is the moved, the change, the external. We decide for ourselves the value we ascribe to the happening, not the happening.
From Lucidity we reach Introsistence, move on to Determination, through to Realization, finally reaching Connaissance. The goal of the path of the five watches would then be the state of the “Niveau élevé”, the “raised consciousness”, which in the full insight of the Self is above time.
