Who loves ya, baby?
I dunno whether it has any significance but I've noticed that time appears to slow just before a catastrophic event.
Cheers. Everyone was fine, just a bit shaken up and the door was all mashed in.I used to hear the time dilation thing from martial artists who'd actually made a thing of fighting for real. An interesting experience to have had, no doubt. Hope you - and anyone else involved - are okay.
I'm sure I've heard this in relation to top athletes too, things like the ball looking larger than usual and moving more slowly in tennis. I find when I watch Messi it looks as though he experiences the game differently to everyone else, he's able to take touches that there just doesn't seem to be time for.I used to hear the time dilation thing from martial artists who'd actually made a thing of fighting for real.
I don't think generalisations are necessarily reductive. if people are motivated by some drive or desire (whether it's lizard-brain stuff or something more rarified) it doesn't mean that's the *only* thing motivating them (people are subject to multiple contradictory drives), it doesn't mean everyone is subject to the same drives in the same way, and it doesn't mean people are automatons who are completely determined by their desires.I think that's quite reductive.
self-flagellation, original sin and sacrifice by way of abstinence and fasting are recurring themes throughout history. we've lost that in the secular age.There's possibly a sprinkling of guilt somewhere in all this, a desire for punishment rather than just catastrophe.
