The Breadth of Time Occupied by Conciousness
    #2184616 - 12/17/03 05:12 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

1_______2_______3_______4_______5_______6_______7_______8 seconds

sober: a moment. theoretically 1/infinity seconds but closer to 1/30th sec (alert/awake beta wave frequency)

tired/sleepy: approximately 1/10th of a second (alpha wave frequency, induced by relaxation and/or smoking marijuana)

heavily stoned/sedated: 1 second up to several seconds (in the low delta range) - subjective temporal effects include time dilation, "remembering" things as they happen (a deja vu type sensation), greater musical appreciation - especially melody, "stepping" -or a smooth strobe type effect... maybe "lagging" is a better word for it (minus the negative connotation) - it's the best way I could put it, if you play online games you know what I'm talking about here. it's like moving your hand and then seeing it move a half second later and being surprised by it. it's a smooth lag though, not jerky. an interesting effect.

level 5+ trip: I have experienced a "moment" in excess of several hours in this state. subjective temporal effects include severe time dilation AND contraction, time loss, no sense of the sequence of events, precognition (or at least, the perception of it), regression into childhood, temporary amnesia.

Sort of mapping out the fact that measuring time is a human construct, and Time itself can be subjective, especially in different states of consciousness.
In your example, time is linear (except the level 5+ trip) , but not necessarily absolute in its increments.

I've always thought it odd how someone says "Soon", and that could mean ANY duration of time. I guess it has to do more with semantics, and relative points, but uh... I digress.

yeah I feel like my mind expands to emcompass a greater amount of time than just a single moment when I am on certain substances.

we are still tracking through time in a linear fashion, but the train is longer. :wink:
