How do we perceive the passage of time?
There's no quantum leap from childhood to adulthood. We experience millisecond after millisecond...even right...
How we visually imagine the continual flow of those seconds can invoke a wide range of emotion. Busy people think time moves too fast. Some people feel time speeding up or slowing down by life stage. And a ticking clock often symbolizes deadlines, due dates, or new beginnings.
Can we truly define the nature of time? Einstein said, "People like us who believe in physics know that the distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubborn persistent illusion."
Only one thing is certain: how we feel about it, how we interpret it, and how we spend it varies by person and by culture.
Are you ready to explore the illusion?
If yes, then fire up some candles, turn off the lights, get comfortable. Listen to this radio segment called the "Time Kaleidoscope."
