The Horizons of Time - Part One

Time and space are inseparable. One cannot exist without the other. Time brings duration to space, and space gives presence to time. My interest in time stems from how cultures influence our perception of time, and how this interpretation of our duration in space, affects our longevity.

Our brain projects cultural time estimates to upcoming space. If the space offers low eventfulness, our experienced time is elongated, whereas high eventfulness, compresses time. In other words, if we are bored, culturally perceived time passes slowly, and if spaces captures our interest, time flies. And here's the mystery. In retrospect, after an experienced event, boring time is remembered as passing faster than interesting time.

How is this possible? Stay tuned and I will explain in The Horizons of Time - Part Two.
