The fractality of existence would suggest, or at least hint at
same being fact on macrocosmic level.

The faster Everything becomes self-conscious, the faster
Everything becomes self-conscious.

"Space" must keep accelerating into exformation...the 5th
dimension(?), where the 0 and the 1 both are both at once.

What I notice, is if I take a job where I have to commute a fair distance, for the first little while it seems to take forever to get there...as I become accustomed to the time/distance consciously, it then 'seems' to not take as long as it did initially.

As for time speeding up for old folks, well that depends on the situation...while I'm at work time seems to slow down incredibly, for some unknown reason.

Time seems to fly by while we're doing what we really want to do,but when we're doing what we dont really want to do,like work,time seems to slow down,everytime...

So, with that in mind, perhaps we really do control the speed of time. wtf2.gif

That's a fact.

As for commuting, yes it's true, but I think that hasn't anything to do with time, but first time we travel a road we need to be 100% alert and pay attention, especially if we're driving cars. As we get to know the route we relax and the brain is working on other things while we drive, thus making it seem like time passes by more quickly.

So, if we are in a relaxed state and our minds are consciously engaged time will travel more slowy. If we are in a stressed hyperactive state, highly focussed and moving quicker time will speed up; such as in the case of playing sports. Is that it?

I think this man made thing called time is pretty much static, but our perception is incredibly flexible.

Time seems to fly by while we're doing what we really want to do,but when we're doing what we dont really want to do,like work,time seems to slow down,everytime and maybe while at work we have to play "beat the clock" all the time and so we are always checking on the time and when we are doing what we want to do,we hardly ever look at the time?


So, with that in mind, perhaps we really do control the speed of time. wtf2.gif

If we were controlling the speed of time,then we would want time to pass by more slowly while we are doing things we want to do and more quickly while doing what we dont want to do,but the exact opposite is how time seems to pass by,every single time and maybe its because while we are at work,doing what we really dont want to be doing, we have to play "beat the clock" all the time and so we are always trying to be aware of what time it is,constantly checking on the time,always looking at the clock, but when we are doing whatever we really want to be doing,we hardly ever notice the time,because we're not looking at a clock,or a watch,or a digital display on our cell phones every five minutes? which may explain that aspect of the strange passage of time,one from several others i listed in my opening post...

Hmmmm? well i cant think of a more relaxed state than when we are asleep,when six hours seems to fly by in one second...

Many major scientific discoveries have been made by relaxed minds. Einstein had his revelation on relativity in a dream, Newton was chilling under an apple tree while Archimedes was having a bath. Time as such is imo not as interesting as the capability and perception of the human mind.

Scientists discover how to make time pass faster (or slower)

A new understanding of how the brain processes time could one day allow scientists to tweak an individual's sense of timing.

New research suggests timekeeping in the brain is decentralised, with different neural circuits having their own timing mechanisms for specific activities.

Not only does it raise the possibility of artificially manipulating time perceptions, but the finding could also explain why our sense of time changes in different conditions - such as when we are having fun or are under stress.
