Description - Making Time by Steve Taylor

Why does time seem to drag when we are bored or in pain, or to go slowly when we are in unfamiliar environments? Why does it slow down dramatically in accidents and emergency situations, when sportspeople are in the zone, or in higher states of consciousness? Making Time explains why we have these different perceptions of time. It puts forward five basic laws of psychological time and uncovers the factors which cause them. It uses evidence from modern physics and unusual states of consciousness to suggest that our normal sense of time is an illusion, created by our minds. On a practical level, this book also shows us what we can do to control our sense of time passing, to make it pass slowly or quickly in different situations. It suggests that it is possible for us to live through more time in our lives, and so effectively increase the amount of time which we are alive for. Finally using insights from Buddhism to show how we can live fully in the present moment, Steve Taylor's brilliant book will astound all who read it.
