Time; relative points of one's thoughts of patterns, consciousness, and physical relation used to the person's psychological view on the measure of time. As an example, as one gets older, depending on the person and their circumstances, one may experience time to go faster, slower, or stay the same rate as it appears to be moving at. To put it simply, the perception of time is the numerically-measured
relative point of view of one's past, present, and future senses.

A common puzzler is such: If a tree falls, does it make a sound? The first thing we have to look at is whom and what are at the event, the second; what kind of sound. Could the sound be at such a frequence that few, if any, beings can hear it? can it be picked up by scientists studying the movement of the continential plates to try to predict earthquakes? The origional question is purely rhetorical and theoretical, any way it is looked at.

Our mind picks up and stores information according to things such as importance, consciousness, sound, visual, touch, and the relative time it was or is and the time of the present. The average general auditory reaction time is 21% of the information in .13 seconds, although the distribution can differ. Although, as said before, any reaction time may seem long considering the circumstances, when the average visual reaction time is 25% in .17 seconds, I think that sounds even more accurate.

A cognitive map may display to eye focus and range. As an example; let's say the sun is setting and you look out of your window. Depending on where and what you are focusing on in addition to the sunset, and whare and why so, you may see the sunset at your relative view directly, indirectly, or not at all.

Moving in circular or likewise patterns of motions may confuse the brain [specifically the cognitive map], simply because one's eyes and ears can not focus on all the interreactions around you, therefor it is like a system overload for your mind. There are two kinds of cognitive maps. One is active, meaning it is always available for brain processes as long as the brain is active. The other is inactive, so it is more of a subconscious source. The active map has to deal with everything from recognizing landmarks to people.

Basic rhythm, motion, actions, and reactions shape the exposition of us to the earth, or terrain we reside on. The perimeters stem from personallity to consciousness; one's ability to detect, compensate, and process the task[s] at hand, including the level at which you can do so.

The deepest, most basic view of our mind could include sleep; our recharging time. When in the process of sleeping the brain sends out various "waves', in which we are thinking, into the related rhythm of less complex or powerful waves, which has the chariacteristic of the indominable hemisphere of the brain, and lastly into an even more related state of unconsciousness. These waves are described as alpha, beta, and theta, not to be confused with the ones used in nuclear mechanics, although with the same ideals.
