New Scientist: How your brain creates the 4th dimension.

Here is an interesting article from New Scientist on how we experience time.  But it has wider implications for events some consider mysterious or “impossible”.

This article makes it clear that time and the things that happen in it are constructions of a perception of continuity.

The article discusses studies that consciously alter the subjects sense of time (and by default body and spatial awareness) and links those results to perceptual “diseases” like schizophrenia.

The larger ideas that I find most intriguing: What if you are not wired the same as a majority of the population? What if you process the various data packets or “blocks” more quickly or more thoroughly than “average”. Could it be that you have a more conscious access to information that others lack the mental capacity to process?
