How can I do that?

The Bloomsbury Group or Bloomsbury Set was a group of writers, intellectuals, philosophers and artists who held informal discussions in Bloomsbury throughout the 20th century.[1] This English collective of friends and relatives lived, worked or studied near Bloomsbury in London during the first half of the twentieth century. 'Although its members denied being a group in any formal sense, they were united by an abiding belief in the importance of the arts'.[2] Their work deeply influenced literature, aesthetics, criticism, and economics as well as modern attitudes towards feminism, pacifism, and sexuality.[3] Its best known members were Virginia Woolf, John Maynard Keynes, E. M. Forster and Lytton Strachey.

It seems that others can explain to me who I am, better than myself...actually, if I think deeply about it, it seems more the sport of fishing, than of knowing.

yeah, but SOMEONE still has to cook dinner and change the sheets and see to the toilet paper roll.
I call thread fail.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1432077


Thread fail...lmao. Looking through different perceptions is important in understanding how other people view life and the universe.

Go back to your cooking, and don't forget to clean the dishes. I can see how concepts of time are so relevant to changing the sheets and checking the toilet paper roll. Troll...
 Quoting: SickScent

Wait SS! Wait! Let's not be so hasty! This was not a normal "thread fail." It was creative, brief, and funny!

Though we disagree with someone, hopefully we can still appreciate a moment of humor in someone's presentation of material.

So I give a thumbs up to the fail post and to your thread!

You can have both. How hard is it to toss the laundry in, add the detergent, then go to making a pie! Or are you using a washboard and washing them by hand?

Re: Time & Other Concepts
What about the time it takes for your brain to process time it self?

If it's possible to stop time, does time exist for that period of time while time is stopped? "How long did you stop time for?"

If time stops, and you move your body, does it take time within the stopped time to move your body, or does it happen instantly?

Could you even think if time stopped?

insanity..

I think you would be interested in Femtoseconds and the quantum mind. [link to en.wikipedia.org]
 Quoting: SickScent


"For context, a femtosecond is to a second, what a second is to about 31.7 million years."

That's something to reflect on.
 Quoting: Snurbs


Right. IMO, time cannot literally 'stop' while in the physical, but can be slowed down by 'consciousness' enough to appear 'stopped'. An example of this is people experiencing a car crash, and reliving it as if everything took place in slow motion. Basically, consciousness went and started processing outside the normal brain activity and starting pulling directly from the non-material...

 Quoting: SickScent



it wouldn't be a matter of "time" at all then if that's the case

but rather a matter of "perception"

time itself is a fallacy

in effort to justify/qualify "change" or procession/progression

of all that is perceived

you think Schrodinger was baffled by what he observed with regard to the kitty...

imagine what he missed when he wasn't looking

Re: Time & Other Concepts
Time should be considered as a variance in change.

Time as we humans currently think of it, does not exist except for within the human condition. It is a human concept that we have created into a construct in order to live life more efficiently.

Re: Time & Other Concepts
ahh cycles and "TIME"

Light effects on circadian rhythm

Light effects on circadian rhythm
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Numerous organisms maintain inherent individual daily rhythms to biological processes, known as circadian rhythms, that assist the organism in maintaining functional periodicity relative to the 24-hour day/night cycle of the earth. These rhythms are maintained by the individual organisms, but due to variable individuality and environmental pressures, must continually or repeatedly be reset to synch with the natural environmental cycle.[1] In order for this to be accomplished, external factors must play some role in the synchronization, or entrainment, of the internal circadian rhythm with the external environment. Of the various factors that influence this entrainment, light exposure to the eyes is the strongest effecter.[2][3][4]

1 Demonstrated effects
2 Internal regulators
3 Other factors
4 See also
5 References

[edit] Demonstrated effects

All of the mechanisms of light-effected entrainment are not yet fully known, however numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of light entrainment to the day/night cycle. Studies have shown that:

The timing of exposure to light influences entrainment; as seen on the phase response curve for light for a given species.
In diurnal species, exposure to bright light after wakening advances the circadian rhythm, whereas exposure before sleeping delays the rhythm.[4][5]
The length of exposure influences entrainment.
Longer exposures have a greater effect than shorter exposures.[5]
Consistent exposure has a greater effect than intermittent exposure.[2]
In rats, constant exposure eventually disrupts the cycle to the point that functions like memory and stress coping may be impaired.[6]
Intensity and wavelength of light influence entrainment.
Brighter light is more effective than dim light.[5]
Dim light can effect entrainment relative to darkness.[7]
In humans, low intensity short wavelength (blue/violet) light may be equally effective as high intensity white light.[4]

[edit] Internal regulators

Light's effect on the circadian rhythms of all or most animals has been well documented. However, since circadian rhythms are internal functions, the influence of external factors like light and an individual's sensitivity to them can to some degree be regulated by internal mechanisms.

In zebrafish, evidence of a negative regulation of light-dependent gene transcription has been found. In one study, overabundance of the enzyme catalase reduced the transcription of genes that were dependent on light, whereas inhibition of the enzyme resulted in increased transcription.[3]
Another study found that a deficit of the oligopeptide angiotensin in the brain of laboratory rats resulted in delayed adjustment to changes in the day/night pattern.[8]
Similarly, deficits of TrkB tyrosine kinase in mice, a receptor for brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), result in a decrease of the ability to entrain to shifts in the day–night cycle.[9]

Internal conditions may thus sway the effectiveness of entrainment to light. All mechanisms behind the process are not yet fully understood.
[edit] Other factors

Although many researchers consider light to be the strongest cue for entrainment, it is by no means the only factor acting on circadian rhythms. Other factors may enhance or decrease the effectiveness of entrainment. For instance, physical activity like exercise when coupled with light exposure results in a somewhat stronger entrainment response.[2] Other factors such as music and administration of the neurohormone melatonin have shown similar effects.[10][11] Numerous other factors affect entrainment as well. These include feeding schedules, temperature, pharmacology, locomotor stimuli, social interaction, sexual stimuli and stress.[12]

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the "third eye") is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions.[1][2]

I remember studying this aspects in relation to humanistic issues, the teacher would throw us reading material like e.g. circadian rhythm and philosophy, the similarities of stories like cinderella throughout the time and civilizations and the problem of language...it seemed like he was and initiate and it was up to the students to make the connections as that is always the case...
