    Default medirlo, cifrarlo, dominarlo, etc.

    Desde que la razón humana creó el tiempo y tuvo conciencia del entorno en que habitaba y se desarrollaba su peripecia, se afanó en representarlo, medirlo, cifrarlo y por medio de su métrica, entenderlo, servirse de él y finalmente dominarlo


    My attempt:

    Ever since the human reason created the time and was aware of the surroundings in which he lived and his eventful journey was developed, he strave in representing it, measuring it, basing it and by means of his metrics, understanding it, using it and finally dominating it

    Hmmm. Este no es fácil. (“Strave” no es una palabra. El imperfecto es “strove”). Intentaba a traducir la idea. En inglés, usualmente oraciones no son tan largas. (Y quien puede entender tiempo? Dominarlo? Ojalá!)

    The human mind “created” time. It then became aware of the development of events as a part of the environment in which it lived. Ever since, mankind has striven to represent time, measure it, estimate it, and by means of the measurements, understand it, use it, and finally dominate it.
