I have been thinking a lot about how we perceive time. Time can be looked at in many ways. One example is to just look at the period of time that is your life. With our current understanding this is a rather exclusive way of regarding time. A smaller way of seeing time is in context of a microbial organism’s life. Another way is to think about its effects in a geological scale. That is looking at the changes that occur on a landmass’ life. The last I will mention is cosmological time. That is to say the life times of stars and black holes. Any way that you look at time it is measured in change. Since our changes’ effects last well after death, I think that our perception of time should be taken to the context of geological and cosmological as well as on a quantum particle level. Many people I see get hung up in the seconds or minutes of the day and don’t stop to look at where the actions that use only seconds or less will leave them. We don’t always know where our actions will lead us, but the more we use these larger and smaller time scales the more we will be able to predict the consequences. So perhaps consider with me perceptions of time and how best to utilize them.
