That isolation clip was strange. Try doing it an actual administration segregation cell. It's much worse without any comforts whatsoever. Very harmful on our psyche. I started feeling symptoms of psychosis within 2 days. A week later i would talk to myself. The first 2 days I would count specific features on a wall. Make up weird mind games. Then i started feeling like i wasn't alone, or that my inner voice wasn't my own... Time was impossible to estimate. Very messed up way to treat people.

Master Piece ❤ What we feel about time is patterns/algorithms, generated by our own mind. And just like the time with Bose-Einstein condensate particles, is something that will always allow us to observe things, but with varying results. No matter how identical is the activity is, we will always observe slight changes. But when we don't observe, everything behaves differently. Observations may vary person to person or situations etc.

People 10, 20, 100 years down the line are gonna look back at this video in a whole different light to what we do right now. "IRpost is a time museum, You know that you are looking into the past, but does the past know its looking into the future?". Hello, "the future"
Vishal Farma
Vishal Farma پیش 3 ساعت
Must feel weird for them, us calling them "the future" when they themselves are in the present. Wish I could have a relationship and make friends with all of you but we are bounded by time :/ I feel like using the word "them" is actually encouraging the loss of relationship through time, it makes "them" feel different to us. Maybe I should use the word "us".

In a lot of prior vsauce videos he just seems to explain concepts others have created and elaborates them, but it seems like hes making new strides and naming concepts himself. Maybe Its not intentional but distinctly says "I call it [blah blah blah] with an official name instead of someone else discovering it. Pretty cool.

"Be bored, miss out, fall behind. Feel time passing. Lose track of time. While experiencing only what your body can alone. You might not have the time of your life, but you'll have more time... of your life. " Now that's a quote that requires you to watch the entire video.
