I'm not sure what you're asking...
'Zone' time is set up to go along with our naturally conception of time. No matter who you are, or where you're from, you, instinctively,
experience time in terms of day to night, night to day transitions. As 'zones' are divided to give us a reasonable time division based on where we
are in relation to the sun, they are designed to conform to a natural concept of time.
But, of course, an event that occurs in the US occurs at the same absolute time that it occured in France (or for Frenchpersons watching the event on
TV). The 'event' itself occured at a specific point in time... which is not based on our solar concept of time...
So, Nans, I'm not sure what you're asking? Are you asking if humans, at the psychological level, perceive time at a different rate than it can be
recorded, or that people in different mental states perceive time at different rates? There have been some studies that argue that some
non-westerners look at time differently than 'we' do, and so structure their lives differently (they may see time as cyclical rather than linear).
So, are you asking about our general feelings on time, or something else... ? Again, I think you're asking something important, but some part of it
is flying above my head,
