Time Reimagined
Video - Time BBC Documentary with Michio Kaku

“..the nature of time: What is it, how do we experience it, why does it play the tricks it does on us? Luckily, there’s a BBC documentary that explores precisely that: Time is a fascinating four-part series by string theory pioneer and prolific author Michio Kaku exploring our sense of time passing, the biological clocks governing our bodies, the geological clues to the depth of time on a planetary level, and the cosmic origin of time itself.” BBC Crew

Michio Kaku
“As a physicist, I’ve spent most of my life studying time and I know it’s one of the greatest mysteries in all of nature. We all know that time is out there, but we can’t see it, feel it, taste it, touch it, or smell it. So how does it exert such power over our lives? In this program, I’m going to find out.”

Time BBC Documentary Episode 1

“Time makes us uniquely Human” Humans have the ability to think, remember the past, present and anticipate the future. This is not necessarily true for all animals which is why TIME is seemingly a very HUMAN concept

Through a story of living beings

Experiment - David Eagleman Exploration of experience in time. Perception of time seems to change under levels of stress, danger etc.

Observation - Time as instinct Grunion Fish - arrival on Newport Beach, California. Always arrive for a two hour time span at the same day, same time at the same beach to reproduce

Experiment - Living without a watch. In a cave! Geologist, Michele Siffe decide to conduct his research without a watch or clock. With no indication of time, the expirement showed ground breaking results of our internal body clock

Experiment - Understanding the body clock Host, Michiko Kaku has experiments conducted on himself to understand the role of the body clock and how it changes through the day.

Observation - Rare disease- dysfunctional body clock Father and daughter’s body clock is just different. Wake up at 3AM no matter what time they’ve slept. Only a few genes contribute to your body clock, any mutation can cause change.

Discovery + Experiment - The “Stopwatch” Our brains have an internal watch that makes time seem to go faster or slower. Experiment indicates how the neurons get activated.

Experiment - Distorting Time Perception Experiment is conducted to understand how drugs may alter the perception of time. Marijuana and Cocains are fed to two rats, the effects are very interesting!

Observation - Disease, Amnesia Clive Wearing, has the worst case of amnesia ever know. His memory is only 30 seconds and his wife is the only person he recognizes. Everytime he see’s here, he thinks he’s meeting her after a few years. He is confined to living only in the present.

Book A sideways look at time Khyati

it explores time as a political subject, showing how indigenous cultures have diverse ways of considering time (past, present and future) but illustrating how one, single, European time is colonizing all these varieties of time. It is a manifesto for cyclical time and for the times of nature, of carnival, of play: and argues that women’s time is different from men’s

...time has been increasingly divided and subdivided, an obsession which is a feature of modernity, to divide time - that infinite and beautiful thing - into the mere infinitesimal decimal, as scientists today use femto-seconds, a millionth of a billionth of a second. Childbirth is timed mechanically. A child’s ability to learn is measured not by depth of understanding but by speed of progress. Work is usually costed by hours. Quality time only things its so special because dominant time is quantitative, counted and accounted. Everything is timed.

Fuzzy Holes and Intangible Time: Time in a knowledge industry Anji

documents the conflict between the personal time experience of the worker in the software sector -- one that is described as intangible and fuzzy (qualitative) -- and the temporal framework of the enterprise in the modern economy -- characterized as speedy, efficient, predictable and quantifiable. authored by Aileen O’Carroll, National University of Ireland

A production process built on an understanding of the rhythms and the collaborative nature of knowledge production would be one that is more capable of mobilizing the creativity and inventiveness of the human mind.
