Time travel speed. In a sense, all of us are time travelers, and the destination is the future. In our present reality, it’s doubtful that we’ll reach it. Our thoughts are the future. Our actions are the past.
Strange existence if you pause to think about it. Would we be able to travel in time? I don’t know. That will remain a mystery for a while. What I do know, is that we can change the speed of time travel. Our perception of time is the key. You’ve probably noticed that when you feel happy time flies, but when you suffer negative emotions it stands still. It’s such a simple concept, yet there’s something mysterious in it.
I’ve noticed that with the appearance of social media we feel like we don’t have time at all because all the moments of boredom we fill up with watching content on social media. It gives us artificial happiness, which makes the time fly. But is that a good bargain though? I don’t think so.
We might be happy temporarily, but at some point, our feelings crush. That leads to some other time speeding activities like binge-watching, unhealthy eating, or something even worse. My point is to raise awareness about this artificial boost of time travel speed. Yes, it’s pleasant to use artificial substances to speed up our time.
But beware that your time machine, which is your body may suddenly break and leave you with no time at all.
