Time flies, no - time LIES! That's what we might think when we try to meet a pressing deadline. Time can be measured scientifically, but in our human experience it flows with endlessly varying speed and weight. Or as Albert Einstein put it: When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.”
Besides the subjective differences in our perception of time, objective differences in time exist such as the physical phenomena of time bending, time dilation or the scientific possibility of parallel worlds. In the end, the way we spend this invaluable time forms our identity. With every decision we make, the potential actions we choose not to take become inaccessible parallel realities. Remembering and looking back become a form of time travel, where regrets might turn into momentum. Which leads to the question, does time actually heal all wounds?
The mendacious or illusory so-called fourth dimension also holds sociological taboos of aging, death, transience and fugacity. And in the end the question arises: Is the passing time a friend or an enemy?
