What can there be to time if it is only the rustle of the leaves that tells you that a moment has passed? So time is a measure of the external world, like the number of times the sun seems to pass overhead. But what if there is an external and an internal measure of time. An internal clock may keep time, based on internal events. Time might then be sped up or slowed down depending on how fast your internal clock runs.
Time flow can be controlled, if it is a continuous stream of Programmed movements.
The mind can be programmed, the evidence is the difference between languages. Two people saying the same thing but in different languages may not understand each other, that's how different perceptions of information can be. If the mind can be programmed to perceive sounds differently, can it be programmed to perceive time differently? Can it be programmed so basically that it could control our perception of time? Then, how basic could the program get? If the perceptions of the mind are generated internally, reprogramming the mind could change the world as we know it, at least for the individual.
A Future World Scenario
The machine would control our environment by controlling our mind's perception of reality. This mechanism could be a device small enough to be strapped to our wrist, something like a present-day watch but much more. It would send signals to our mind that would indicate the way the world worked. Such instruction could begin in the dream world, which may actually be programming that perceives the world the way we do now. Learning to control your dreams would be learning to control the world.
If a perfect year has a perfect week
then a perfect week can have a perfect day
and a perfect day can have a perfect hour
and a perfect hour can have a perfect minute
and a perfect minute can have a perfect second
then one moment in time can represent a perfect year.
