thanks

Thank you,
I thought along those lines and I also think
that time is not linear.
Thanks for your opinion.

my neurologist and i were once talking about how one could accelerate the passing of time by altering one's perception of consciousness thru certain mental exercises.

neither. from what i can recall, it was training yourself to mentally skip seconds...or...occupy your mind with more activity. it was a rather powerful suggestion;we were talking about doing it at will. i wish i had his email, but he's a very personal guy, so i just did my conversing with him at appointments. he's also a reader of Fortean Times, btw

exactly. just because someone is colorblind doesn't mean that a rainbow will be yellow and grey to the rest of us.

i remember posting something similar to this. it dealt with the difference between sleep and consciousness and how the time perception differs slightly within the two.

it's all based on perception, yes, but it's interesting to wonder, with all our advanced intellects and hightened senses of self, just how far from actual perception we have gotten. we see and comprehend things differently than our ancestors, that much is true. but what about on a metaphysical and aural level. in this kinetic era, is time faster or slower for us? do we see color more clearly? how aware have we become of the arrow of time?

I aggree with what you said. The map is not the territory. But I would add that perception could be rated in 'usefullness' (or something like it) in addition to difference. Certainly, for a person hearing voices coming out of electrical sockets, it would be more usefull for him not to hear them.

If these are the sort of images used in parapsychology i think they would provoke a sense of precognition in me too
or something

Ok I agree that 'usefulness' might not be the best word. 'Ecological' perhaps ?

And those pictures...:eek!!!!:

Sequential response patterns and other possible artifacts were examined as a possible normal causal explanation of the data, but it is concluded that these data only seem explicable as a form of “backaction” or retro-causal effect due to conscious experience. Backaction was discussed in the light of the role of time-symmetry in physics. It was speculated that consciousness plays the role of a highly coherent absorber and is therefore responsible for constructive “backaction” rather than destructive retro-causal effects which are thought to arise from non-coherent absorbers.
I need to re-read the experimental findings when I'm awake: but I really hope the above extract from the conclusion section makes more sense in daylight than the dark ( I may need to call-in my own family-member tame psychologist...though the physicist can sleep-on, for now methinks)

I'm not sure a second reading will add much ... This research was originally posted to the FTMB in New Science. Upon reviewing the published report it became apparent it had more to do with parapsychology than physics.

Was just reading his biography - interesting gentleman! Parapsychology and 'remote viewing' seem prevelent?
