What does am and pm stand for

Time is everything right. Without time it is almost impossible to live with. We look at time as something so real so that no one can live without it. Living with time is essentially the basic thing of human beings.

Does Animal obey time. For them, they wake up in the morning when the sun rise, some doesn't. So i guess this time dependency is somewhat genetically wired to them. So Humans will also has this genetically wired programs that makes us cry, laugh, angry and obey time.

However we have invented this chronological time to universalise time in Earth. As you know if sun rises in India, that means sun settles in US. It was impossible to understand this time difference and manage commerce. 

Therefore, we have invented time to easily manage these things. However time has grown and became part of our lives. Time is more like an organ now. It has taken our mental space so much so, our even basic activities are planned around time.

We wake up at 6 am by putting an alarm. We used time to set our lives which should be otherwise. Now time decides what we do and what we dont do. It is really funny when we say we do not have time. I mean what does that even mean. No time. Time is not something that will just disappear or reduce. Time is just a concept like honesty. You can be honest or you cant. Honesty might be different for different people.

Time is also like that. Not chronological time true. But the psychological time. We know that if we watch a movie, time passes like anything, But if we are studying a boring book, it feels like time is not passing at all. This time is what i was talking about. Anyways lets come back to what am and pm stands for from what time is.

What does am and pm stand for

Some say it's “after midnight” or “past midday,” but that isn't exactly true... In fact, like many words and phrases in the English language, a.m. is short for a Latin phrase, “ante meridiem” (or “before midday”), while p.m. is short for “post meridiem” (or “after midday”).

AM = Ante meridiem: Before noon 

PM = Post meridiem: After noon

When we talk about time in day or night, we use pm or am. Many has no idea what exactly does this mean. That is exactly we have listed what does am and pm stands for and how to use this in normal conversations.

You can say, "I will reach there by 1 pm". This means you will reach the destination on afternoon. The afternoon part is evident when you say pm after time.
