this is an interesting topic for me. I have for some time been obsessed with the perception of time. Gravity, because of mass, bending time and space,
on earth, our solar system, and our galaxy.
Time perception to me has been proven to be completely alterable. I have experimented with it and have had much success. I find that while my
perception of time is made more acute, and time slows, my ability to filter information and process it and respond does not immediately alter to the
I find that over a long period of time, when I can adjust to the change, I respond as quickly as I want to a world moving as slowly as I want. I have
achieved lightening fast speeds. My testing environment is work, I wait for several orders to back up, not too much....lol....and then I let it fly.
I have been able to actually double my speed while slowing my perception of time to half. I can say that much is practice, as it is that I am good at
what I do, but still.....I am every day able to maintain a higher degree of time alteration, to the point that I think I cannot do it much more
because I run the risk of going mad.
I must at night, release my focused perception and let time flow normally. I get a sort of "high", by the excess energy I have allotted my body,
(muscles, brain activity, ect)
When everything is "normal" again, I get very tired, but I am able to put off sleep for at least 20 hours over my natural cycle when necessary. That I
have been able to do by working crazy hours and then staying very mentally active until my next work shift. This way I am able to run at least 2 days
without sleep, though, it can get tiresome. With no activity I can only go 20 extra hours beyond my normal "up time "without getting too tired. I only
need 6 hours sleep usually.
I don't know if it is all linked, but when I am tired, I try and maintain time, not too fast and not too slow. I think that is my trick to staying
awake. It is all about perception. If you think time is going to fast you will try and use energy you don't have and will crash, if you make it too
slow, you will purge excess energy you do have making you stall.
When you are too tired, just speed things up like revving a bike. When you are too juiced, slow things down, like being put in and trying to move in
water. That is to maintain over long periods. Time perception for me is key.
If you are well rested, fed, and relaxed, you can speed things up by doing the same thing. Imagine your moving in water and then suddenly imagine you
are moving through air. The jump in consumable energy will make you like a ninja rocket. When you are at your fastest,( time is moving slowest for
you) ease off the gas, and let things relax a bit, and just "rev the bike again", and glide along. This way you will keep maximum velocity physically,
but mentally you will be several steps ahead with less strain with focus.
I don't know if this all makes sense, but I love this topic and recommend people to explore it in depth, as it yields many secrets to our mind, and
opens the limitless possibilities we are often denied.
