Philosophy Wire: Time passing slower and the perception of One.

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-05-23]:

Scientists uncovered a new angle on mental distance. Feeling closer leads to poor judgement of space: Why does the second hour of a journey seem shorter than the first? Research suggests that the answer lies in how we're physically oriented in space. Research has demonstrated that a person's orientation -- the direction they are headed -- changed how they thought of an object or event. "Feeling close to or distant from something impacts our behavior and judgment," says the lead author. "We feel more socially connected, more emotionally engaged, and more attuned to the present when something is perceived as close." [1]

We are close to our self.
We perceive time as passing slower.
We are close to another person.
We perceive time as passing slower.
We are distant to the universe as a whole.

But yet again time passes even slower at that scale.

We are close to the universe.
We perceive time passing slower...
Everything is IN us.
Time does not exist.

Be illogical.
