So recently I saw this question in YA https://answers.yahoo.com... and it really got me sad and thinking. So can you slow down how you perceive time? Or reset your brain?
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Some really good drugs, maybe?

Watch a pot of water boil or watch the grass grow, maybe that will help.

Do people with photographic memory perceive time like normal people? Or is it slower?

It has become a cliche over the past few years.

And this practice has become a sort of Flavor of the Month among the self-help crowd.

Go to that section in any library or bookstore and you will se title upon title mentioning it.

But it is by no means new. The Taoists and the Zen Buddhists have been extolling the virtues of engaging in this practice for years.

What am I talking about?

LOL.

Mindfullness.

Living in the Moment.

Not becrying the past or worrying about the future.

Living in the moment. In the zone. Becoming fully engaged and attentive to the activity at hand. (This is a great thing for sex, BTW).

Mindfullness.

That is the best way for your perception of time to slow down. Alas, it is the ONLY way.

Marijuana will do it. When listening to music you will hear each and every instrument separately because your perception of time has slowed to a crawl. (For the record, I haven't partaken for many, many years. There may be other alternatives now).

if you want "to control TIME",

ALL that is required is a greater understanding of the ILLUSION that TIME is mostly constructed of.

I play with TIME all the TIME as I have a great understanding of the ILLUSION as well as the ILLUSION MACHINE made up from superstitious based beliefs, opinions, concepts and such.

I can make TIME seem to fly or go slow at will as it's ALL in the mind in the first place...

so whats in your mind and WHO or WHAT is in "control"?

are you the driver or just along for a free ride?

If you are a passenger you can always ask the driver to go faster or slower depending on whether you wish to enjoy the scenery or not.
