Does time exist outside your head? (Part 2)

Time is all in our heads, but that doesn’t mean it’s not real! Or does it? This episode is all about the #psychology of time. At the end of this you’ll know a bit about why time slows down when we fall, or how we create time in our own heads, how the clocks in our brain keep track of time, and how we THINK about time — which may be the driver of time after all!
0:00 Perception of time
3:03 Metronome Experiment
7:55 Brain Clocks
10:57 Time flies when you’re having fun!
12:38 Cultural Perceptions of Time
Time is a construct that we humans invented to try and explain the changes and movements of the universe that are happening around us. Time is our way of trying to bring order to cosmic chaos. So, you could say that this series is me, trying to bring a little order to my understanding of time! Where did time come from? What is time? Where does time exist? What is the base unit of time? Why do we even need time? Why does time seem to slow down when something crazy happens or when you’re bored? How did time come to be? What about relativity and quantum mechanics? What the HECK is this thing we call TIME?! You’ll have the answers. Let’s kick into it.

What we get wrong about time
“Time” is the most frequently used noun in the English language. We all know what it feels like as time passes. Our present becomes the past as soon as it’s happened; today soon turns into yesterday. If you live in a temperate climate, each year you see the seasons come and go. And as we reach adulthood and beyond, we become increasingly aware of the years flashing by.

#Perception of Sequence and Duration
To perceive is to become aware of stimulation. Awareness of sequence or duration may, at first glance, seem inconsistent with the definition of perceiving. In a mathematical sense, certainly, the present is only a point along the continuum of becoming, an instant when future is transformed into past.

13 Milliseconds is all it takes to see
Imagine seeing a dozen pictures flash by in a fraction of a second. You might think it would be impossible to identify any images you see for such a short time. However, a team of neuroscientists from MIT has found that the human brain can process entire images that the eye sees for as little as 13 milliseconds — the first evidence of such rapid processing speed.

Your brain has 2 clocks
Did you make it to work on time this morning? Go ahead and thank the traffic gods, but also take a moment to thank your brain. The brain’s impressively accurate internal clock allows us to detect the passage of time, a skill essential for many critical daily functions. Without the ability to track elapsed time, our morning shower could continue indefinitely. Without that nagging feeling to remind us we’ve been driving too long, we might easily miss our exit.
