Lately I’ve been playing with the idea that time is subjective. In the last year or so it occurred to me that if time is only a psychological perception of “something passing,” then it can be manipulated, like most psychological perceptions.
I often get really freaked out because my awareness in the present will be the same level of awareness (give or take) I will have the moment before I die. What separates me from that moment but…time? And if fifty years (optimistically) goes by in the blink of an eye (according to my retrospective perception) am I dying now?
