Read ‘the Doors of Perception’ by Aldous Huxley yars ago, but there is a lot of it which really seems relevant to the percetion of time, namely how physicists look at time as a granular entity, i.e. is in bits. could be a connection with virtual reality? Huxley says:
“…could never have perceived that what rose and iris and carnation so intensely signified was nothing more, and nothing less, than what they were – a transience that was yet eternal life, a perpetual perishing that was at the same time pure Being, a bundle of minute, unique particulars in which, by some unspeakable and yet self-evident paradox, was to be seen the divine source of all existence.”
“There are many hallelujahs that exist and the perfect and broken ones have equal value, its a desire to affirm my faith, not in a formal religious way, but with enthusiasm and emotion.”
L. Cohen on Hallelujah
“Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men’s reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of ‘the rat race’ is not yet final.”
