I’ve seen memes and heard people say “time is a made up concept” BUT have you ever thought about how weird it would be to live without the concept of time? (Or at least for me) #mindblown
500 years ago time was determined by the morning, afternoon and evening. Time was also divided by the season such as Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
In the last 200 years, time was accurately divided by a sand hourglass where a day was discovered to consist of 24-hours.
Thanks to astronomy, seasons were divided into months and then to days. The cycle of the moon as well as the acceptance of a heliocentric model lead to the Gregorian Calendar.
I’ve had trips on drugs (LSD and DXM) where I uncoupled myself from time or at least the common perception of it. Both times were different. On LSD I was completely out of sync with time. I don’t know how else to describe it, but I found the whole concept utterly ridiculous. On DXM, I experienced time dilation to the point where 1 minute felt like 10000 years. Both were fun and I miss being able to do them
It’s just so hard to imagine living like that for me lol
interesting. time is a matter of perception. think of a f1 pilot at 180mph, time is running slow in his mind. almost all drugs alter perception of time like @crazydiamond444 described. it is perfect to enable us to meet in a specific point of the day night cycle. it is a real measure true for everybody but it runs faster for some, slower for some, and in sync for some.
Now that’s interesting… or even some days seem to fly by while others drag on…
I guess that brings up the idea of not knowing what everyone else experiences… cause what they perceive and experience is totally different from your own
I had time dilation from pot. It wasnt ideal lol cuz i wanted it to end. But a minute felt like forever.
When i ride my mtn bike fast downhill time doesnt exist for me. Thats probably why i like it, just in the zone focused on the task at hand.
It seems to me that time is measured in the relationship between things, like the seasons occurring because of the earth’s orbit of the sun, or years counted by the number of times the earth orbits the sun. But to me, “Time is like an hour glass glued to a table”, and even if we were in a complete void, with no objects for us to measure their relationship with other objects, there would still be units of time, like seconds, minutes, and hours. But that is probably wrong. I just don’t want to believe it.
Did humanity create time? Interesting question.
