6:15 am
tillery, as she is the past, to descend against a massive russian also expected in easton ukraine as if. and now a documentary about time is up next week, and i always get the latest news on our website, d, w dot com. i've told me on latin. well that's it for me. so genius, i just got it. it's a thought they were great. ah
6:16 am
ah, ah, now and then my childhood comes back to me and with it a certain moment, a sensation or a smell. they say time carries everything away. but it also brings beginning i was, i am, i will be without nothing. i begin. please hold the line on the line with the incredible. i felt back in the background is gone. conway is time it i mention or an illusion. all we have is that one word for a puzzle that changes everything as it passes. it can pass fast or slowly and
6:17 am
experiencing time quickly or slowly can be the exact opposite in retrospect. so what is time? you can see my mom and i'm off. we can go to a place twice. it has 3 coordinates, proverbially speaking, meeting length, width like we can go there twice, or 10 times a mother, but we can't go to a single point in time. it simply is, and then it's gone is the 1st one. with control, it was on me we, when we wake up, we give ourselves an alarm, and that's how we perceive it along that so relationship to the world, one of aggression and our long they have to go. the bus is leaving, the plane is coming. come, come east in the 1st and last year. if i constantly imagine what has been and what will be punished, i don't even realize what's happening now. that's now living when i'm only in my head, and maybe i'll wake up later and think i missed life. ah,
6:18 am
life and tell him amount to a collection of ephemeral moments. time cannot be held on to. it always flows away. it's both fleeting and the race. we have no organ for experiencing time. it we always fear how it is for gang unheard people when it's if there's a past and a future,
6:19 am
then there's something in between. we could call that present. sorry. the big question is then, how long does it actually last or you could say it has no duration at all. this is, it's just a slice. does this? there is something like this objective present. it, which in fact was described in the best book. there is about time and temporality, namely, book 11 of saint augustine's work of 397 c e. u. confessions and confess eunice. just as active in it. he says there's actually only the present. the subjective present squeaking describe it as a moment. lasting about 2 to 3 seconds. don't you feel fibrous tie? couldn't noah known for missile one? now. this moment of the present is an experience generated by our brain. because all the information perceived by our senses is continuously collected in the brain, evaluated bundled intersections,
6:20 am
and thought. that's how the subjective present is created. every 2 to 3 seconds. the moon is frozen, dreaming. the golden star is a gleaming so brightly in the sky. lord, it is tired, so great was summer's flow vehicles mitigate had been better. i'm with yellow pears hangs full of wild roses, the land in the lake and the letter like that. i chose a temple in which living you sometimes give a voice to confused what john, by the marina. once, when i was born in the navy, i memorized go to his faust. and when you do that you realize something fist again, ye come ye hovering foams i find ye as early to my clouded sight he shone like that's the beginning of the dedication. and at last or 3 seconds, what shall i compare the to a semester, though out malevolent, ma, temperate,
6:21 am
but shakespeare sunday, it's united. so in all languages, you notice this temporal segmentation of about 3 seconds, one decided video. be good on how a tree reflecting the normal mechanism of the brain and a snowman mission. this must as mentioned, get hence why an experiment jeep you ice on this rotating kim, me after a few seconds. the directional change, regardless of whether we wanted to or not, with the brain as trying a new interpretation from a human junkie from an hits elaina. if you shake someone's hand, if you hold it for more than 3 seconds or an emotional reaction sets in, would i be unpleasant?
6:22 am
oh, very pleasant. i shall too cool to see if a handshake is too short. that's also strange. the views, intentional movement has a rhythm, wanted for a few scratches, self done. this is respected, acknowledges iran yos, i believe, has felt looked at it in many different cultures, would ruin. it happens everywhere you. but i think a temporal dynamic that grounds us in nature. it in indiana to $19.00. 0, we feel time even more when nothing is happening. our attention is drawn to like get hold. time dragged by and we hear the ambient noise of our existence. but any restless person has the pallet to picture the future and the past. that means that any waiting room can become the scene of the greatest adventure this i'm sick,
6:23 am
it was booklet. the one thing that really distinguishes humans from other creatures is the ability to wait. that is to take a pause between wanting to do something and doing it that pause that ability to wait is actually what makes us human insights are mentioned o. time is invisible. we only experience it indirectly as change. first this, this been not been something else. without the idea of succession, there would be nothing we could call time. not even a thought. we also can't conceive of a stillness before time. we are always on the way somewhere moving from one moment to the next in one direction. meanwhile, our hearts beat. ah!
6:24 am
when the 2nd one had sneaked in fear for the doctor, this is an i'm, i could say my heart beats in 44 time one irons till 3 fear for a libby song. dish touched on with breathing and my sense of time that's a different time experience. than saying it, beats are in 34 time biotech. 123123. it's a completely different feeling for the body. and that's what music plays with. or it might just be $1.00 and $1.00. and once, once i'm ah, music is time materialized. it plays with evoke to memory, with expectation, and with presence in beethoven, 7th symphony. what seems to be an ancient melody suddenly makes its way out of the echo chamber of the past into the present moment of listening.
6:25 am
decided that after the 2nd movement is composed in such a way that a slightly bullion tempo is always there, always flowing fleece. and then with the last cord it, again, the door closes, the glimpse is over and suddenly you're back to reality in a completely different tempo. and out of that comes the 3rd movement later, incorporates that really strong sense of relationship to time. and then comes the 3rd movement to come to this does a meant the forwarding was in the moment before music starts just before is always
6:26 am
silent. music always comes out of silence. that's why the moment when a work begins is always the most exciting, dim discussion. it's like a vacuum from which the work or the next arc of suspense has to emerge admission in open esteem. the energy has to be tremendous. i don't know if it can be measured as what it must be possible. sh cookers out of a tiny particle of silence, sheila, we get an explosion of a sound and is a clung musson. the start was magical. we only know that it's here the world. it found a way to begin alice, you can also send me val. expiring suggests that the universe is expanding and you
6:27 am
don't need a physics degree to work out that if that's the case, it must have been smaller yesterday and even smaller the day before that contacted you can gradually sync backwards making the universe smola and smallest aleck line the question becomes, what's the very smallest beyond which you can't go? i can also, you can decide that time began with the smallest causally possible time there is, i just move all you calculate it using quantum mechanics and the general theory of relativity time again after 5 by 10 to the negative. 44 seconds latino minus fume 50. it could ah, the way we think demands that everything has a cause. we can't think otherwise. we can't imagine a beginning without something that came before. physics is about measuring the big everything that surrounds us. but not everything can be met. your physical of your
6:28 am
husband, if we physicists hate time, it just doesn't fit into our equations. i zoom in experiments, you can always waste that time to 0, but we can put the bowl back at the top it all the time can go forward and backward in equations and i thought we keep getting older about to look what it's as though there are different forms of time that's obvious for freedom to farm from side. give me a clock, cuts everything into sections and give the will time based on 24 times. fine. but this is a human construct in the past noon occurred in each city at a different time. depending on the position of the sun mm. time measurement is relative. according to einstein's theory, if you live through space at the speed of light, your wrist watch would slow to the point that no time would pass at all. mm.
6:29 am
it's not possible to actually experience this in the absolute sight. absolute time is what i called cosmic time. it's a time arrow that's always in motion. if we were on another plant, we could determine how all the universe is. it would take a while because we'd have to build telescopes and so on. but we'd determined that the universe is the same point 82000000000 years old. why? because there's cosmic background radiation in every cubic centimeter of universe. there are 400 background photons from and if you measure them, you know how old and big the universe is. ransoms would be goose's. dean lou, lou, lou, lou,
6:30 am
lou lou time runs on always in one direction. um, will it ever be possible to stop time to escape its invisible force to wake up in a better universe? i'll go back to a moment in time. lou, chris on the side or decide what was going back in time. maybe that it would mean that everything in the universe endeavor thing would have to be returned to the state. it was one sanmar, all the particles that leads to a problem of entropy. people, lamar did, it would require more energy to bring the universe back into that state than the universe provides. so i'd have to get energy from outside the universe and in order to bring the universe to this day to be valid. and that's it. there's no time travel backwards time. nothing come sorry. good credit side with what's love the
6:31 am
stood malott. ah. and yet we can travel in time. after all, remembering means returning to a present in the past. ah, the little girl at christmas. the inexpressible feeling of anticipation. the scratchy feeling of an uncomfortable dress to remember is to visualize, to invoke smells, taste, and feelings. only the intense moments remain in us. those of pain or particular julie. our ego is the narrative of these intense moments. our life is the storehouse of
6:32 am
time. ah, it puts you, mr. design in madison. i project myself into my past and that creates identity. i'm myself because i go back in time into my past into my episodic memory. might it be that would what i find there is myself, which allows me to define myself as a doppelganger. you let me say about my daughter, the tragic thing about alzheimer's and dementia is not so much the memory loss kunkle. it's that the sufferer can't find themself any more dishes shuttles, etc. so by dish misconduct me of income. if my memories are extinguished, i no longer have any reference to myself, obviously may, but so identity is created through time travel into the past. i tie, isn't it? by the ireland for young about what sort galban munchman heaved o him leave. it sometimes helps even in the middle of life, because is to husband think what if i look back on my life now destiny,
6:33 am
which is visions what i like to have made the most and how would i like to have lived it? how can i live my life so that in the end i can feel positive are mostly positive about it? he damaged but i think that was something where everyone has to work on themselves a bit for his life. you are obsessed with performance success and having a lot of money. that's certainly very important in life at 050, but in the end would remain important though. probably be something else the chinese was unlike. did i love the people around me? just you mentioned gaily, have i been a person of integrity and cannot look at myself? can hinge peter shown ah, to be a good person at sea aspiration. and yet we push, we hunk the horn. we worry about being late. we exert pressure. we rush,
6:34 am
we live at that tempo, all the while complaining that we don't have time for what's really important. ah, there is a discrepancy between the relentless, globally accepted time and our own in a sense of time. who in my life decides how long things should take me time is out of joint. it's accelerated and scarce. we have to do too much in too little time. benjamin franklin think it aside. benjamin franklin tells us to remember the time is money is not always. it's guess because money is notoriously scaffold, otherwise it would lose its function is money is uncle said about these days. we've extended that co building, as we might say, to our children or ourselves. time is education is as a whole cultural capitalist peer border calls l. m. site, those are don't just sit around and educate yourself loving, but they learn
6:35 am
a language will read, a newspaper oper copied. you can also cite and time is health, but to me physical capital, the source and you could go jogging or meditating below. all resources that we lead in or competitive system to conduct for a little time can be social, capital, hon. from other you could meet with friends or call somebody or be active on social media. i describe it as a relationship with the world and a li, a reality that's always asking where we can invest energy and resources in order to get the highest possible return. i talked to her, i don't have time or not enough time to be does that phrase sound familiar? the comfort i liked or more of it, more of it. i like go more bit more it unlocked or morbid. move it. yeah. like each reading. like, oh, you have fun with
6:36 am
it, philosophy blaise pascal, read all of humanities problems, stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone with a lauren, mia ding. it a logical consequence is that we try to fit more into the day with guns for is often long when time is short and we have to do a lot i voice and as i know, we tried to speed things are additional are the we, we do that in 3 way consultant lawana far, we actually do things faster, caught the microwave, instead of the star activity or fast food instead of slow food shenanigan. cooking becomes something special for the weekend snag. and if a lot of new technologies promise an increase in the 2 big, we take a power now on it because no longer than 20 minutes in order. or we spend quality time with children in this office. so i, we're not spending that much time with them, but we're also getting a qualitative increase out of ish, other shanella 100 for additional i other way is that we try to avoid breaks and downtime. and so for might, when we wait for a bus,
6:37 am
when you start texting to use the time fung ism is please note idle time bloss conley alone. and the 3rd thing is multitasking, asking eager to initialise if you give them the loiter, you presume, and other humor will pazzar widen or what lights are. there are always people who try to work here in europe and communicate with people on other continental dnc vases or talk me. they just don't sleep as if normally from of and at some point they implode because they hadn't slept for days. went on or else they can only keep themselves awake with pharmaceuticals and gibbs that, that shows us, that we're living being the result of evolution. i'm sure we have a certain space of perception to form from is that our science takes us into the very beginning spaces and the very smallest ones and done it. and it also tells us that in cosmological terms, is that to have been connected from the very beginning of it as other sock minutes to be shut. none of that tells me how to act, how to treat others,
6:38 am
how to treat the living nature around me. i think that part of our crisis will be they environmental energy, resource crises, and so on. here is that we're just throwing all these concepts at the time at each other. for him. these are guns inside the cliff zone of we haven't acknowledged how important it is to be mindful that as it says in the bible back there is a time for everything. everything has it's time enough to understand alice had sounded side and so as i and that site he otherwise have you been at, were exploiting nature over exploiting it to be poisoning it at a rate that's just too high for nature to cope with the along that type of effect, global warming and the greenhouse effect, or an acceleration in the atmosphere. monument cost, where the fossil fuel placed acceleration alma isn't going, is that so much bye? it's d synchronization. what is the orbit? we've become too fast to needed on the machine to code for album. and there are
6:39 am
also limits on the speed at which went and processed things politically unless he was mismatched. i think it's a massive misunderstanding to think that democracy is just a population saying yes or no. and what's this step 1st, it's really a process of understanding my arguing leave deliberating and analyzing is it's time consuming. did they cancel from that time is no longer available in the face of things like super fast financial market. it's allow capital to circulate to the speed of life. but i'm your super fast media that once or no one's opinion within 2 minutes of an event. we can see t synchronization in our relationship to nature because to politic or so and even to ourselves, if i heard was only was oversteps what we call the problem of earn ours. but on as interesting, not just in terms of those who get sick. this is not also those who are healthy. copper, who constantly talk or think about it. nish with careful they don't get burnt out. it's of puzzle was normally put on ultimately it's an out of control relationship at a time. each also unmanifest was se synchronization and fights for mrs. awkward. this
6:40 am
employee is not soon. sig lyle, shy keys, m, our bodies, collins, b accelerated. well wish lonnie pause im time has gone off the rails in an unprecedented way in early 2020 the world hit the stop button and our global high per time fell apart. the fear of not getting enough done was suddenly replaced by the fear of a virus. for a strange moment, the instruments were used to time our lives were left to their own devices.
6:41 am
the unsettling standstill was like a warning. is the way we live fundamentally wrong. oh how can we just be without being productive or always worrying about to morrow? that's the great wish of our time. and the answer that comes from all corners of life is mindfulness. the here and now can be learned, for example,
6:42 am
through zen meditation. doing as a shin, a person suffering from this time sickness learns to sit to be silent to b as it, yes, the minute been, ah, sources are off the 1st time i went on a session was to get some peace and i came down to my 3 children weren't sleeping and i was very tense. i just done after keesa within 5 minutes of sitting down on the cushion. everything that i had swept under the rug over the years came out. does come to serve you monday went. it was so scary that was so horrifying. the said i just cried for 3 days. i was afraid to sit there again to see to see the things i hadn't actually dealt with in my life and what i had just pushed away. and
6:43 am
then i came home and said, i'm never going there again, he's me reading with saying the way is the goal. but before that comes getting back that journey takes you from lake lou cern up mount rekey. they shielded from the world. you can learn to be at the mercy of your own thoughts, fears and feelings. there are absolutely no distractions. aunt dunwoody for my mon, anybody to decide the doc? no, i'm and then my husband persuaded me to do another session with him on done hobby. and i thought i'll focus myself and make such an effort that nothing like what i 1st experienced will ever surface again, could see. and through that focusing,
6:44 am
as i transcended everything and had a deep experi of unity that is yelling. i learned that we are all connected with each other. we're all one, nothing is permanent fish, nothing has a substance extensive that experience in the takes you out of time. aside to have, i was time ways you down to change what was and would, is to come get so strongly processed in the mind. if i was to step out of time means to experience total freedom and out and to learn to leave that everything that is is true to a foreign i'll it was shipped something in us asks how things were for us either recently or long ago. and it asks how they will be in the future. we always think we can change
6:45 am
that. we made that way. what we can change as whether or not we allow ourselves to be diverted from such thoughts. sinister anguish. and i invite his highest concern is actually very simple afternoon. it means coming to the moment and stop complaining him and tag it because our mind is a running commentary and mostly negatively. this suits me. this doesn't again, i want this. i don't want that. that's really good i, it's a matter of trying to calm the thoughts and not just to calm them on, but to have them fly like clouds in the sky without giving them substances some scheme. so we see that the brain works, but we stay with the breath. if we're setting it, bly bother, or if we're walking with his debit since or might be, or if we're working with a work with or if we're eating with the eating haitian,
6:46 am
i'm and that causes us to come out of time. let's via oust aside that our, at our school, me. oh, for a restless person being completely focused on one thing is more difficult than anything in the now. no futures can be formed and nothing can be optimized in the now you already there no matter how or where that is. because these things do always matter to us. we constantly miss being in the now in the loyalty seats and unstable said they're like this. how so beautifully and unc than the bell comes and they have to get up on dice and there is a longing to keep sitting. it's, it's, if i day it's been, they think i want to keep sitting. i'm in the flow, so it's going so well. now, whereas before it was going terribly and now the bell is going to sound and i'll have to get out. but that's exactly the point that we don't remain stuck in our
6:47 am
perceptions like what we do, what comes next. and standing up on is the same as being in the flow yet that him flow to say the here and now as already over. oh, not too loud, too loud. these 4 bars go from 0 to a 1000. ah yes, music is indiana, a losing for music is actually
6:48 am
a release from pastor future. what each of us does every day as constantly think about what has happened and happen earlier. what will happen? what do i need to plan for? who manages to really always be in the present. but when you make music long, and i think also when you consciously listen to music and not just when it's in the background, then you are in the present here in this world of the now all the time she got i, it's an incredible flow because for the duration of the music today, it's such a relief not to be able to think about the future or the past, the gram. oh, moments can pass quickly or slowly. 2 2 above all. 2 time is the subjective sense of duration. 2 2 2 go back to beethoven when time fault is. 2 so does melody. 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
6:49 am
2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 ah, does it even at least transition passage light and the theme passage are probably similar in length? white as one of them is constantly feel like waiting and the other like arriving that relationship of tension. it's i as like time that's on made hannibal. that's also what's still magical about connecting as a conductor. you have to give shape to these transitions. and to reckon these energies and anti bentley time, so that the listener, 1st thrown back and forth between all these dress points him and tag of often food your philosophy, theodore adonis says that every artwork has the duration yet is itself
6:50 am
a moment. do in a work of art. it's possible to experience time just as subjectively as in life. mm. sometimes it moves quickly. sometimes slowly. there are moments when we fall out of our own, present, and sink into another time. art allows people to play with time. but in real life, it's time that caused the shots in mind. it is real of us. on 60 months, i finally decided to survive. if my faces would be that time interests us because we know we have to die. your vision. does that mean even design? we know this won't be forever, but we don't exactly have to hurry because you won't get everything done anyway. i will. but the meaning of our actions and our words is tied precisely to the fact
6:51 am
that we can't go back in time and that it won't last forever. dozens of the baby's lungs just a moment ago you were playing with you shadow. everything was amazement and now and without consequence, then suddenly and lifetime is behind you. like a roll of film. time moves towards the end, faster and faster. at some point it will stop. but how exactly does dying? what is his wife? he opening? yeah. quick showed as leaves, it's often a look back at life. void of eyes under mach may be regret, size may be gratitude, thought may be also a lot of anger and despair about how things have turned out the question of time. and life times height is very different is on to for most people,
6:52 am
time becomes extremely precious. when it becomes limited, suddenly you become very aware of the here and in our, and the preciousness of life. and the remaining time of arrival inside service, many very ill people say that they live much more in the here. and now that they suddenly become aware of things, they never noticed before. the sound of rain or the birds singing in the morning and the frugal, more seeing the sun coming up in appreciating those things that get completely lost in our hectic lives. as the poet who co wrote, longing as having no home any time may be in the middle of linear ticking time. there is something like eternity. after all, something that has nothing to do with duration, longing,
6:53 am
as having no home in time. ailleen no truly shambria and of course we all have dreams and hopes for the future. i do 2 unknowns, but it's important to do the things that are important to me. now. i not always put everything off until the future or after the so often i've seen people become seriously ill, 2 or 3 months after they retire when she wrote some say i wanted to start living now. and i think a what happened in the last 65 years would be taught so sad when life is then suddenly cut short or limited will be cleansed. i think the trick is really wants to do what's important to you. of course, together with other people to the to really live now in which to do things now quickly. which doesn't mean you can't also have dreams for the future if it's not
6:54 am
harbor. ah, there is a time for everything. but what does a certain length of time look like? artist misha visally can show us. for 5 years, he's been photographing construction work in berlin's noir. not in our gallery, modern art museum. he uses full cameras and long exposures to capture the pull of time. millions of tiny present moments in a single image. he can make visible the duration of a protest. years at an airport with the champions league. fine fiddlers, did he come daddy? a lot of people can't get past the impressionistic aspect of my work question. as i
6:55 am
say, ok, impressionism. and oh wow. yes, india, that's true. did i say it? but it actually goes much further into ideas of real time and the present at the 1st one is a lot trace is does the present leave behind it off on? yeah. and how does it get reconstructed by the time that's just occurred to those authors? it's quite philosophical, but tell on and call the image is permanently constructed and deconstructed through the duration of exposure. and we see only the front and i'm not, i don't think this is what time does it move? flow is in a verse. if you look long enough, it separates the permanent from the ephemeral. the reality bridge in venice all berlin's puts them of plants over its 10 year metamorphosis.
6:56 am
hey i. c no wonder for dorothy his annoyed math in the over $100.00 photos that i'm now taking of you. there are 100 different people if, as ones into all, because at every moment you have a different facial expression. mimic and as i talk refer on, i would still have to decide which moment to give you. i didn't make it. a photography is made up of light in space and time all inside of put together the way the photographer imagines intervene for the tanf is somehow only relative. i had him in the end. pictures testify tor impermanence. how temporary we are here on this planet. the temple? yeah. we really just the guest is of something greater. yes. if our muscular so am
6:57 am
i ah, i am, i was, i will have been but in between, i have all the, tell him in the world as long as i can forget myself and forget time. if i can let it turn as he will put an arm around me. and that's true. even though this film has just made us 43 minutes older with
