Slow Down Time with Stress

at 11:11 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Human Hacks, What Were They Thinking

 

Eliot Phillips from Hack a Day posted an interesting article about some tests that were done to determine if time slows down during high adrenalin situations. It looks like it does! A person was dropped from a tower and attempted to read a flashing display during the fall. Prior to falling the test subject could not read the display but was able to read the first digit perfectly during two fall attempts. The second digit was not read correctly however a similar looking digit was seen both times. I wonder how this corresponds with a work day zipping by or dragging depending on what you were doing?

    GOOD TESTS BUT TIME DOES NOT SLOWING DOWN OR SPEEDING UP
    CORRECT IS BRAIN SPEEDING UP OR SLOWING DOWN
    WHEN BRAIN WORKS TWICE FEST THEN NORMAL TIME SEAMS SLOWING DOWN BY TWICE THIS DOES NOT NEED ANY PROVE OR TESTS THIS IS ABVIOES

    So they’re saying when you use Cocaine, you can read the digits as fast as when you are under high adrenaline. Sweet! Then I gotta stack some more up to prepare for my midterm study cramming next semester.

    I remember when I jump out of the plane (before opening my parachute). I was seing my trainer (still in the plane) I was looking his eyes more little, more little… It tooks many seconds… In my head only because my fall down speed was more than 200km/h…
    Very difficult to clearly estimate time in stress situation…

    This is what happened to me when I had my car accident. My brain sped up, time seems to slow. High way speeds, car pulling in front of me to turn around in the median I hit her side door and we both rolled and ended up in the median. From the point before I hit her to the time I landed upside down. I could remember everything that was happening at that time. Like in the mist of a roll over I knew I was rolling. so these were my thoughts at it happened.

    I’m about to hit her. bam ooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmggggggggggggggggggggggggggosh Iiiiii’mmmmmmmmmmmmm rrrrrrrrrrrrooooooooooooooooooooooollllllllllllllllliiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnnnnngggggg.

    so in normal time this would be I’m about to hit her. bam omg, i’m rolling.

    true story.

    This explains why mice on marijuana drive only 40, although 60 is allowed and vice versa for cocaine.
    Brain Overclocking with stress works: Time is running faster at work if you are under stress.
    ie: No Stress Boss! I can work longer for you with my (slower) time, if you dont stress me! … or give me some marijuana and stress me…

    I have observed something similar while on long road trips. I found that if I concentrated on the road ahead I would begin to perceive that objects – light posts, trees other vehicles etc were slowing down, sometimes considerably. If I then suddenly broke my concentration the sceen before me would suddenly speed back up.

    I have also been successful at altering my perception of a spinning ceiling fan to such an extent that even when set to its highest speed I was still able to clearly see the individual blades. I have sometimes wondered if with the proper training one might not be able to perceive them as completely motionless.

    Here is a thought to ponder. When artificial intelligence reaches a level that allows us to communicate with machines the way we now communicate with one another, how will they perceive us.? An artificial brain might run at millions of times the speed of our human brains. Their perception of time would most certainly be vastly different than ours. Lets just hope that they don’t get bored with us.
