Good OP, thanks for the link it must be 15-20 years since I have read Angelus Silesius, nearly forgot all about him, thanks indeed.
I think on the meditation bit, that to be in a true place of timelessness, where you see the "gap" between the projections is quite difficult
to achieve. Usually if you do it is a "private" or "personal" affair.
In addition it also is beyond our three dimensions, and so therefore language can not describe or measure this experience. One of the main
constructs of language and meaning "past" and "pre" tense are not frames of reference so it is never an accurate description if attempted.
So maybe that’s the lack of response reason, or maybe they have replied but it has not started yet lol.
I really posted here to recommend a read you would love,
"Winston Churchill's Afternoon Nap" but you probably have it?
Here the Washington correspondent for the London Times presents what is surely among the most detailed and provocative analyses of the profoundly
subjective biological nature of the human time-sense. He explores the latest findings about "biological clocks” the factor that made Churchill nap
after lunch and goes on to cover a range of ideas about "time" from ancient cultures to current prophets of AI and "human consciousness" like
Marvin Minsky, Endel Tulving and their peers, along with philosophers from Plato and Augustine to Sartre and the existentialists. Campbell's insights
into music and speech are perceptive as they relate to the human sense, and it should be noted that he has added a new coinage, lifetime, to
Amazing read, deep as above but good.
Also have you read "Blink" a very popular book recently exploring the fact that people who are very successful tend to make decisions
immediately without thinking, not so academic, and mainly looking at "Thin Slicing" behaviour in responses but good as well.
I have found time is most interesting during an "accident" or emergency, and paradoxically the opposite "joy" or "love/Peak" experiences.
I know when I have been in Car accident's that my perception of time was altered drastically and immediately, its almost like "ninja" mode :-)
or Yoda like, and it does appear and feel that all consciousness is focused on immediate input only. With the limited experience I have of this level
of practice, it is the closest event or "awareness" to deep meditation timelessness. However you have the love feeling and relaxed consciousness not
"tight", whilst also being totally in the "now" accident like, but with no fear or accident!
Most I feel have experienced time "slowing" down when in great danger.
Then we have the mundane "love" experience, first date and all that, holidays, great times well time seems to speed up, in all of this of course I
mean our perception, not time itself!
When you fall in love and a day goes by in minutes.
Of interest too is the recent phenomenon of mass "time speeding up" meme that is around at the moment, the whole 2012 thing and Calendar, and also
the predictions by lots of traditional native people’s prophecies of this change in time now.
This subject reminds me of Keats and his wonderful poem "to see a world/universe in a grain of sand". Personally I think that this fractal nature
to reality, the fact that everything is made of one "stuff" as such at a very deep quantum level, non locality etc, so,
Therefore indeed you are correct Time probably is of our own making, or more correctly which bits of time we focus on are what we experience, but are
not the true nature of it.
