Time passes, but not in your mind

I believe that the greatest wonder in the world is mind. And it is the super-fast traveller in the universe. It can travel back and forth in time. Mind tries to pull or push you away from present. It makes you wander in the past and future.

It is not time bounded. There is no start or end for the mind journey. No one can tie it down. Therefore there is no time in mind.

Oh.. mind is winning over time.. It is really great while thinking more on it.

We always tell like ‘time will go on’. But often we forget about the exception, i.e. our own mind. Our thoughts wander here and there like a free horse, sometimes slowly, sometime swiftly.

When we think about the whole universe, it is rolling over time from past to future.. (or is it from future to past..?. I donno.)

There is no return path for the life in universe.  It cannot go back to past (or can it go back?, I donno). Time passes whether we measure it or not..

But time does not exist in mind. It is freed from time. Have you wondered about this mystery of mind..?

Brain makes decision seconds before you are aware of it

Yesterday I was chatting with my friend over phone. After sometime, we said bye and were about to disconnect the call. While I was just disconnecting the call, I heard her voice from the other side asking me something more. But without sensing it fully, the call had been disconnected by my hands..

My hands could not be prevented from disconnecting the call, while I was hearing her voice.

Is it like hands acting ahead of brain..? Senses to hands are also given by brain.. If so why such timing issue?

This is not a single incident. I felt it many a times, in many occasions (not merely in phone calls)

The call was not actually disconnected, that’s why I heard her voice partially. But all of a sudden hands acted to cut the call. May be the instructions were given to hands ahead of time and hands were simply acting accordingly.

reflexIt is told that brain takes decision 7 seconds before our conscious mind becomes aware of them.

May be the decision to cut the call was taken by brain 7 seconds ahead of time. And hands acted accordingly. In the meantime brain changed its decision recognizing that the other person is talking.But the call was already disconnected by the time conscious mind became aware of the brain’s changed decision.

But even then, why it could not take any reflex actions or changed actions according to new circumstances..?

Time Dilation

Seconds are too significant while compared to distance.

Does it sound a little bit weird? Comparing time and distance on a same scale? That too with dominance of time over distance..

I’ am alright; nothing has gone wrong with me when I said it.

But I happened to be in my own space station where my seconds are lagging behind your time.

Yes, experiencing a time dilation with relativity theory in my space station..;)

Is ‘Now’ an illusion ?

Start living your life in the present. Forget the regrets about the past and anxieties about the future. Simply enjoy what’s happening now.time

These statements are something which we often hear.But my question is

“Does ‘present’ exist really?”

Say, you are reading this now.. In fact you are not.. Since light rays take a finite time to bounce from the letters to your eye. Since the difference is infinitesimally small, one cannot recognize it.  So when you read a word, you are reading it as it looked sometime in the past. Or each letter you read is in the past.

So how a present moment can be there..?

Or is it based on the perception..?

Somewhere I read like the “shortest time a human can perceive is nearly 0.1 second of visual experience”.

So can the 0.1 second time-frame define the present?

I was having this past, present, future confusion since my childhood. While I am thinking, it’s just NOW. But oh, no. after a moment it has become past. ..What’s all this.. Makes me utterly confused.

😦

I donno. Am I overthinking?

Or is it like “Present is boundary between past and future with no real existence of it’s own”

I think I need to investigate more on time, more on Einstein’s relativity of space and time.

Woman – Kitchen lovers..?

Thought to give an extra emphasis on this……

If you are the cook at home, make it fast.

Just find out the unseen extra time.
Use your time more productively.
Make new wonders in the world!!

————————————————————————————————————-

Do you think that woman are kitchen lovers..? Normally it is assumed that kitchen is the woman’s place. It’s just a job which anyone can do irrespective of the gender. If a woman does it, it is a favor or a service which she does for her family. I don’t hate cooking, neither do I like to spend more than an hour in kitchen at a go.

Blindly, it is assumed to be the responsibility of a woman to feed her family. In a sense it’s okay as it is a female opportunity to please her hungry dear ones. Hmm!! it is good. I really feel loved when my family enjoys my cooking (at least when they pretend so 😉 ). And I won’t allow any maid to have that opportunity. 🙂

Now coming to the other side,
My dear girl friends, please listen…

Never spend your whole day in kitchen.

Have your own plan . For me it is one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening for cooking. (And definitely might have to spend more time during special events, which I don’t mind) So just list out your activities which you do in a normal day and check how much time you spend for each activity.

Now ask yourself
1. Do you spend at least an hour in a day with your family?
2. Do you spend at least an hour in a day for yourself (yoga, prayers, meditation, body care etc) ?
3. Do you have at least an hour in a day to make yourself relaxed (playing with your kid, gardening, reading etc) ?

The list goes on. You can add your own checkpoints. And don’t you feel pretty bad if the answers are ‘No’ .

If you spend your whole time for cooking, cleaning, washing, office etc, how can you come out of the monotonous life ?

This is a fast growing world and there are many techniques to make your work easier, only thing is we need to think about it. Find it out and enjoy the varieties of the world.

Routine activities are least concerned by your family ( And of course, the most concerned, if not done.. $$##@@). But if you want changes, if you want challenges, come out of the routine world and make your day varying.

So if you are the cook, make it fast.

Just find out the unseen extra time.
Use your time more productively.
Make new wonders in the world!!
