People like to say everything looks like binary. Binary is the chicken of math, everything tastes like it.
Hello, I actually studied binary in school, across 4 or 5 classes. All mathematical systems can be broken down into binary no matter what base system they consist of. DeMorgan pretty much proved that all mathematical calculations are reproducible in strict binary, no matter how complex they are. George Boole even attempted logic that incorporated binary and added a third "fuzzy" logic feature. It can be argued as tertiary or binary+RNG. Honestly, even that, by mathematical law, can just be broken down into binary actions, as per DeMorgan.

Regarding TIME. (A benefit you mentioned in the OP).
Humans have lived in excess of 300 years prior to this “discovery”. The result of those times was a continued devolution as exemplified by a loss in body size and lifespan.
This discovery may well prove to be a reprieve of sorts as you mentioned the halcyon benefits of the switch’s manipulation. Humans do seem EaGR for something, the likes of which seems to be continuous sense gratification. Given this predilection do you think people will actually use the borrowed time to devote themselves to goodness and service to the Supreme and/or their spiritual/material brothers? Or while ticking away the moments that make up a dull day, will they find more ways to fritter away the hours in an offhand way?
