As mentioned in the article posted by "Quest" above, I have experienced this time distillation effect. This occured during martial-arts activities. All of the above mentioned effects were similar. However, I still have not found a satisfactory answer as to whether this is simply a hyper-sensitivity or an actual time distortion. Is it possible that it is in fact a combination of the two? That is, perhaps the two are both real and mutually dependent in order to function? Further, aren't all of our perceptions actually illusions and distorted by our the very limited nature of our senses?

Loam,

I think Quest and Shadow have hit the cord. I think what they have mentioned is pretty accurate.

Great articles guys and great feedback. Quest has done a great job by describing what goes on in the brain. It is quite funny, the operation of the brain, it can do the most complex tasks and some of the simplest of activity perplexes it.

Cheers.

Seriously if possible i would want to learn how to do the whole fear-slow down effect on purpose, if nothing else just for the experience!

Imagine being sat there, focusing really hard, and time seems to slow down infront of your eyes. I wouldnt be surprised if some Tibetan monks or whatnot have actually accomplished this, putting it down to "chi" or something.

(If you've ever seen Star-Trek insurrection- and no im not a trekkie- a race of people managed to master this abililty, to "hold a moment", since theyre about 400 years old they had a lot of time to practice, anyway just a little anecdote....)

True Shadow, i think it would be great, however if there are people out there who know the technique, they may be relucant to disclose the process. As i have mentioned before the consequences could be some which we could not image.

I do support the idea, but I guess as a global community we all may all not be ready for it. The reason for me saying this is inspite of history being the best teacher, we still hold on to our hostile behaviour and tend to do more horrible things than better. This could be because a lot of the good works goes un noticed or unmentioned as it would be intended to be.

I could be wrong in my thinking, but this is what i think.

Oh you made me think, since it's apparently, long story short, a rush of chemicals and hormones, causing the whole body to speed up, including the visual part which causes the illusion of time dilation. Ok not so short...

Aaaaanyway, if someone were able to master this, wouldnt they be able to run around, fight and take out an entire room of people, perhaps dodge bullets? Lol maybe that's taking it to the extreme but still.......

It´s impossible to stop time. The time is actually accelerating instead. See for yourself. This post was posted one hour into the future.

How is your subconcious meant to know when it's 7 o'clock or whenever you programmed it to wake you up, if it can't read the time on the clock without your eyes being opened?


I work permanent night shift and have done so for the past two years, i havent needed to use an alarm clock for the past 12 mths or so. in all that time i havent been late to work once. All i do is look at the time as im going to bed, once im comfortable in bed i just repeat to myself(in my head not out loud) what time i want to wake up for about 30 secs.It hasnt let me down yet.

I had an experience about 10 yrs ago when crossing a main road i caught sight of a van bearing down on me fast as i stepped off the curb.The next 3 secs seemed to take about 30 secs as my body leapt backwards seemingly without any voluntary thought from me.I was shaking so hard from the adrenaline rush for about the next 5 minutes that i couldnt move.

Another thing that i had heard of, and i may be way off here, is that some athletes have what is called fast twitch muscle fibres,or at least more than most of us .dont know if this means that they would have faster reaction times because they have a different time concept built in.
Just my 2 cents
Cheers

God this is why things like UFO's and John Titor are still going strong. Both have been proved conclusively to be fake, yet people still refuse the out and out proof.

The link I provided is what is causing an effect of time dilation, but you still carry on about nonsense!

As an example. Both American and Russian military revealed it was they who were working on UFO's. The Nazi's apparently did so too, more successfully. They even showed us (some of the less successful, so probably lower declassification) actual "flying saucers" they had designed and built. Yet people refuse to accept it.

Alien encounters are caused by sleep paralysis. Fact.

Titor was some teenager. They got his IP. Proved everything on the pics was faked.

Time dilation is an effect of the mind. End of story.

Intresting, i tryed it, it gives me the ilusion that the pendule stays in place for about 2 seconds, I think it's the the trick of the mind, we have a refresh rate imposed by our brain, 2 seconds is the most I can do, it's a sence of time dilatation that only hapens in our brain, the refresh of vision stops, 2 seconds is enough for the brain to ajust it smooth when it comes back , if it hapens by a factor of more time I think we would just see the pendule move faster, so the more it stays in place it go's faster where it supose to be, 2 seconds can not be noticeable so we dont precive it.

I used to do this all the time with my cieling fan. If you look away with the right peripheral vision, the blades will seem to move very slowly(flow together). I don't know exactly what goes on there. It has only been able to be kept in slow motion for a few seconds, then I lose concentration and they move fast again.

Ok nobody believes me, so I am throwing this out there. For the last six years except for this year time stops around me the fires time as we as all the other times it just happens I am alone in the house and I look out the window and I see the neighbor frozen pushing his lawn mower I see out dog and cat frozen in air playing, the effect stopped when I looked at a clock . the next year it happened again and I did not look at a clock. In my house I could move and do things, i was alone I turned on tv, and time started again. I am in no special mode or thought when this happens it is always a surprise to me. The last two times this happened my wife was out to the store I painted a room and cleaned up while outside was frozen. She thought the I had friends help me to surprise her she was gone a half hour . last year I cleaned the garage while she was gone at a friends this was an all day job the garage is connected to the house and was a mess. She was gone an hour and again thought I had friends over to help she said it would take five guys at fill sped to do the job. I started time by going outside. And Idea how I can get a record of this if it happens again?

Holy crap... neat trick!
Is there a way to master this trick so that you can turn it on and off as second nature and also be able to look at the second hand directly?
Is there mean to be the ticking sound when you do it? Cause mine doesn't have it.

There is yet another wierd trick through self hypnosis that could help you wake up at any given time of your choice without an alarm clock simply by programing your subconcious with the length of your sleeping cycle.

Can you tell me what it is? I hate alarm clocks.


hmm no wonder i can wake up like Exactly on time, without an alarm clock. I do this all the time
I was freaking myself out for a while when i learn this ability.

This is how i do it, may not work for other people.
1. Think really hard of the time you want to wake up
2. Focus on that time for a couple of seconds or w/e (Also try to look at the current time now, i had to at first)
3. Try to make it the last thing you think about (i had to do that at first i think, but now i can do it whenever and it usually works.)
4. You wake up at that time.

This is something i found out myself, and not sure if it works for other people...
