“Marking Time: Consciousness, Cosmos, and Calendars

“Explore Science in Second Life!”

A public presentation and consultation of members for a joint educational journey.
Facilitated by Phil Youngblood / SL: Vic Michalak

 

Abstract

Time is an inescapable reality in our personal and social lives.
We mark it, celebrate it, take it, stretch it, slow it, waste it, and curse it.
Our mind and bodies count on its regularity, but the reality is it is not regular.

We are almost constantly aware of it, but conceive of it differently if awake or asleep. 

Happy New Year? Leap Year? New Decade? Yes or No?

Religious calendars, secular calendars, fixed and movable holidays.
The perfection of the cosmos and imperfection of the sun, moon, planet, and stars.

Let us take time together to explore the physical reality and the abstract concept of time.
