Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Procrastination Vacation

The blog(ger) is going on a little Unplugged Staycation for two weeks. In the meantime, have a look at Maria Popova's great chronal posts on her blog, Brain Pickings; her summary of several posts came in a review from 15 July 2013, Why Time Slows Down When We're Afraid, Speeds Up as We Age, and Gets Warped on Vacation. She comments on a recent book by Claudia Hammond, Time Warped: Unlocking the Mysteries of Time Perception (click on the links in the quotation below to see Popova's other posts on time):
Time Warped, a fine addition to these essential reads on time, goes on to explore such philosophically intriguing and practically useful questions as how our internal clocks dictate our lives, what the optimal pace of productivity might be, and why inhabiting life with presence is the only real way to master time. Pair it with this remarkable visual history of humanity’s depictions of time.
See you on 20th August!
