for any breaking news or part of the story, you can also use the after sent us photos, videos of what's happening. this is dw news. our next by sir, thanks for watching. ah. i just got a sister thought they were great. mm hm. mm
11:16 am
mm. mm hm. ah, now and then my childhood comes back to me and with a certain moment a sensation or a smell. busy they say time carries everything away. but it also brings beginning i was, i am. i will be with them. nothing like because please help the line out the line with incredible. i felt back in the foreground is gone. conway is time it i mention an
11:17 am
illusion. all we have is that one word for a puzzle that changes everything as it passes. it can pass fast or slowly and experiencing time quickly or slowly can be the exact opposite in retrospect. so what is time? you can see my mom and i know we can go to a place twice. it has 3 coordinates, proverbially speaking, hiding length width, like we can go there twice or 10 times a month. but we can't go to a single point in time. it simply is, and then it's gone is the 1st one, the control, it was on me. when we wake up, we give ourselves an alarm in the bottom. that's how we perceive it along. that's our relationship to the world, one of aggression and our long they have to go to 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
11:18 am
head at maybe i'll wake up later. i think i missed life with life and time amount to a collection of ephemeral moment. time cannot be held on to. it always flows away. it's both fleeting and veracious. we have no organ for experiencing time. it, we always fear how it is for gang unheard.
11:19 am
keep within us. if there's a past and a future, then there's something in between. we could call the present site. the big question is then, how long does it actually last or you could say it has no duration at all this. it's just a slice. justice. there is something like the subjective present. you begin, 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, after school as act as keep in it. he says there's actually only the present the subjective present. we can describe it as a moment lasting about 2 to 3 seconds. the only fibers tie the couldn't oh no, to a missile one, no bomb. this moment of the present is an experience generated by our brain. because all the information perceived by our senses is
11:20 am
continuously collected in the brain, evaluated bundled intersections, and thought. that's how the subjective present has created every 2 to 3 seconds. the moon is wilson gleaming the golden star gleaming so brightly in the sky. lord, it is tired, so great was summer's flow. vehicles mitigated, ben baron with yellow pears, hangs full of wild roses, the land in the lake. in the letter i chose a temple in which living you sometimes give a voice to confused word of jolla by the molina. once when i was born in the navy, i memorized go to his faust. and when you do that, you realize something is oh again, ye come ye hovering forms, i find ye as early to my clouded sight. he shone like that's the beginning of the
11:21 am
dedication. and at last or 3 seconds, what shall i compare the to a some us day, though out more lovely, ample, temperate, shakespeare, sunday, it's united but so in all languages, you notice this temporal segmentation of about 3 seconds. one, decide the v dash be good on hold tree, reflecting the normal mechanism of the brain and a snowman mission. this must have mentioned to, hence why an experiment g p ice on this rotating kin. mm. after a few seconds the direction will change. regardless of whether we wanted to or not, what the brain is trying a new interpretation. when human to hum to keep from on hits elaina. if you shake someone's hand, if you hold it for more than 3 seconds or more, an emotional reaction said sin,
11:22 am
would i be unpleasant? oh, very pleasant. i shall too cool to see if a handshake is too short. that's also strange. views. intentional movement has a rhythm once it's for a few scratches self. this is respected ethan ologist, iran use, i will. ibis felt, looked at it in many different cultures. kuhn, it happens everywhere. uba be a temporal dynamic that grounds us in nature. it in indiana to what she oh, we feel time even more when nothing is happening. our attention is drawn to it, like at board. time dragged by and we hear the ambient noise of our existence. but any restless person has the power to picture the future and the past. that means that any waiting room can become the scene of the greatest
11:23 am
adventure as i am. so give us booklets to 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. like me so much from 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!
11:24 am
when the 2nd one had sneaked in fear for the doctor on this and i'm, i could say my heart beats in 44 time one irons till 3 fear for lab results on dish touch base with breathing and my sense of time that's a different time experience. than saying it, beats are in 34 time dietary. 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 $1.00 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
11:25 am
echo chamber of the past into the present moment of listening. decided that as the 2nd movement is composed in such a way that a slightly bullion tempo is always there, always flowing please. and then with the last cord, it was 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, when incorporates that really strong sense of relationship to time. and then comes the 3rd movement on it
11:26 am
does a moment before team was in the moment before music starts just before is always 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 tiller, we get an explosion of a sound and is a clam musson. the start was magical. we only know that it's here the world. it found a way to begin with,
11:27 am
allison houses, monotony. val expiring suggests that the universe is expanding and you 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. talk that you can gradually see backwards making the universe smola and smallest alkaline. the question becomes what's the very smallest? beyond which you can't go? i cannot. you can decide that time began with the smallest causally possible time there is. i just move all you calculated using quantum mechanics and the general theory of relativity time again after 5 by 10 to the negative. 44 seconds martina's fee, and fifty's 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
11:28 am
everything that surrounds us. but not everything can be met. music of your house, and if we physicists hate time, it just doesn't fit into our equations. i zoom in experiments, you can always reset 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 income. it's as though there are different forms of time that's obvious for sheed in the form, france argues o'clock, cuts everything into sections and gives 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,
11:29 am
if you live 3 space at the speed of light, your wrist watch would slow to the point that no time would pass at all. mm. it's not possible to actually experience this. in the absolute excite, absolute time is what i call cosmic time. it's a time error 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 determine that the universe is 13820000000 years old. why? because there's cosmic background radiation in every cubic centimeter of universe. there are 400 background photons, not from. and if you measure them, you know how old and big the universe is. ransoms would be goose's noon. lou, lou,
11:30 am
lou time runs on always in one direction. mm. mm. 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, across a sort of side to decide what was going back in time, man, leave us. it would mean that everything in the universe and everything would have to be returned to the state. it was one sanmar, all the particles that leads to a problem of entropy. people imagine 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 in order to bring the universe to this state and the
11:31 am
bells, and that says to blink, there's no time travel backwards time. nothing, i'm sorry. good credit side with what love the stood malott. ah. and yet we can travel in time after all, remembering means, returning to present in the past. ah, the little girl at christmas. the inexpressible feeling of anticipation, the scratchy feeling of an uncomfortable trace to remember, is to visualize, to invoke smells, taste, and feelings. only the intense moments remain in us, those of pain. oh particular julie our egoist the
11:32 am
narrative of these intense moments. our life is a storehouse of time. ah, is put you to you, i'm sorry, man in mind if i project my cell 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 as my doctorate. a 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, if income, if my memories are extinguished, i no longer have any reference to myself. hobbies may be too high. density is created through time travel into the path i tie, isn't it by the ireland for young. i'm hot outside gilbert munchman his o him leave. it sometimes helps even in the middle of life because his data and think
11:33 am
if i look back on my life now destiny, which decisions would 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 etc dumped to quit . i think that was something where everyone has to work on themselves a bit from his life. you are obsessed with performance success and having a lot of money that certainly very important in life is 0 which to you. but in the end, what remains important will probably be something else chinese was unlike. did i love the people around me? just you mentioned really have i been a person of integrity, but can i look at myself? can hinge peter sharon ah, to be a good person at sea aspiration. and yet we push,
11:34 am
we hunk the horn. we worry about being late. we exert pressure. we've rush. we live at that tempo, also well complaining that we don't have time for what's really important. there's a discrepancy between the relentless, globally accepted time and our own in a sense of time to in my life decides how long things should take me. time is out of joint, it's accelerated and guess we have to do too much in too little time. benjamin's franklin's act, we think of a side 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 as money. as uncle said about these days, we've extended that building. if we might say to our children or ourselves, time is education. as a whole. cultural capitalist pierre body recalls l. zips tight was about to sit
11:35 am
around and educate yourself and they learn a language will read, a newspaper oper copied. you can also cite and time is health to me, physical capital, the source and you could go jogging, meditating below, from what all resources that we laid in a competitive system to contest. foreign dental time can be social capital. an alternate if you could meet with friends or to call somebody or be active on social media. i describe it as a relationship with the world and ali 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 come for i like to move it, move it. i liked or morbid move it. i like to move it, move it. you're like, oh each reading. like, oh, when you have fun with
11:36 am
philosophy, blaise pascal ret, all of humanities, problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone with a lookin mia ding. it a logical consequence is that we try to fit more into the day. was guns for is often long when time is short and we have to do a lot i voice and as i know, we try to speed things are additional are the we, we do that in 3 way. don't consultant a long before 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. now again, if a lot of new technologies promise an increase in its will, vaguely take a power now on it because i no longer than 20 minutes in order. or we spend quality time with children in this often. so i, we're not spending that much time with them, but we're also getting a qualitative increase out of each other shanella 100 for dish. this i other way is
11:37 am
that we try to avoid breaks and downtime for my when we wait for a bus, when you start texting to use the time fung ism is please no idle time, loss can me alone. and the 3rd thing is multitasking, asking eager to please give them the loiter if a soon as a human will pazzar widen about lights. there are always people who try to work here in europe and communicate with people on other continental dns vases or talk me. they just don't sleep as if normally from of and at some point they implode because they haven't slept for days, went on or else they can only keep themselves awake with pharmaceutical ann, give me that, that shows us that we're living being the result of evolution. i'm sure we have a certain space of perception to from, from, is that our science takes us into the very beginning spaces and the very smallest ones invented. and it also tells us that in cosmological terms,
11:38 am
is that to have been connected from the very beginning of it, as other sock managed to be shut. none of that tells me how to act on how to treat others, 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 of time at each other to see him. these are guns inside the cliff. as soon as we haven't acknowledged how important it is to be mindful that as it says in the bible back there is the time for everything. everything has, it's time enough to edit it. alice had signed it site 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 almost a type was effect global warming, and the greenhouse effect, or an acceleration in the atmosphere caused by the fossil fuel placed acceleration . alma isn't going is absorbed, why it's d synchronization when,
11:39 am
as long as we've become too fast to nutrition between decode fall, but there are also limits on the speed at which went and processed things politically. must even miss 1st. 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 of deliberating and analyzing is it's time consuming it dismissal 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, you're super fast media that once 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 had missed only was oversteps what we call the problem of earn ours, but on is interesting not just in terms of those who get sick. this is mr. to so those who are healthy, who constantly talk or think about it. nish, who a careful they don't get burnt out, it's all person was known who is put on out something. it's an out of control
11:40 am
relationship at a time. each also manifest was se synchronization and fight fight mr. off yet this includes that soon. signals shy keys and our bodies columns be accelerated, will push launch pause, him. 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,
11:41 am
the instruments were used to time our lives were left to their own devices. 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?
11:42 am
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, through zen meditation. deering, as a shin, a person suffering from this time sickness, learns to sit to be silent. to b as it yes to minute been. ah, switches out of the 1st time i went on a session, but my 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 cases are within 5 minutes of sitting down on the cushion. every thing that i had swept under the rug over the years came out of it does come for 2001. it was so scary that was so horrifying that 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
11:43 am
pushed away. and then i came home and said, i'm never going there again. me reading with saying the way is the goal. but before that comes getting back that journey takes you from lake loosen up mount rekey. they are shielded from the world. you can learn to be at the mercy of your own thoughts, fears and feelings. there are absolutely no distractions. on dunwoody for my mom, anybody to decide to talk know i'm i then my husband persuaded me to do another session with him on been hobby and i thought i'll focus myself and make such an
11:44 am
effort that nothing like what i 1st experienced will ever surface again could see it and through that focusing as i transcended everything and had a deep experience of unity that actually i learned that we are all connected with each other. we're all one, nothing is permanent, nothing has substance since that experience and a takes you out of time and i have, i was time ways you down to try what was and what is to come, get so strongly processed in the mind. if i was to step out of time means to experience total freedom and i was and to learn belief that everything that is is true to a foreign all it was east. she something in us asks how things were for us either recently or long ago.
11:45 am
and it asks how they will be in the future. we always think we can't change that. we made that way. what we can change as whether or not we allow ourselves to be diverted from such thoughts. sinister anguish, can't i invite his haste? comes in 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 negative. 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, 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 we're much behind it,
11:46 am
or if we're working with a work with or if we're eating with the eating haitian, 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 delighted seats and unstable sit there 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 shoots if i think it's been, they think i want to keep sitting. i'm in the flow, so it's going so well. now,
11:47 am
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 perceptions slightly from what we do. what comes next and standing up on is the same as being in the flow yet start him flow to say a here and now as already over. oh, not too loud, too loud. these 4 bars go from 0 to a 1000. ah,
11:48 am
yes, music is and gonna lose on for music is actually a release from past and 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. you're 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. it's a grim oh moments can pass quickly or slowly. 2 2 above all. 2 time is the subjective sense of duration. 2 2 2 2 good back to beethoven when time fault is. 2 so does melody.
11:49 am
2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 ah, does it even at least transition passage to light and the theme passage are probably similar in length quite as one of them is constantly feel like waiting and the other like arriving. that relationship of tension it's i is like time that's on may the tangible. that's also what still magical about connecting as a conductor, you have to give shaver to these transitions and to reckon these energies and i then the time so that the listener 1st thrown back and forth between all these dress points him and tag of offered you philosophy theodore adore now says that every
11:50 am
artwork has a duration yet is itself a moment. do in a work of art. it's possible to experience time just as subjectively as in line. 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 next time that caused the shots in mind, it is real at us once a few months. i finally just happened 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
11:51 am
will, but the meaning of our actions and our words is tied precisely to the fact that we can't go back in time and that it won't last forever. dozens of thought is the baby's lungs. oh, 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 walk? it is jose giovanni. yahoo! shoulders, levens. it's often a look back at life void or buys, under mach may be regret, size, maybe gratitude, tall, maybe also a lot of anger and despair about how things have turned out the question of time.
11:52 am
and life times height is very different. it's the onto, for most people, time becomes extremely precious when it comes limited, suddenly you become very aware of the here and in our, and the preciousness of life. and the remaining time applied and 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 approval, 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
11:53 am
time. there's something like eternity. after all, something that has nothing to do with duration. longing is having no home in time. in 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. yes, and not to 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 go to 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, it will be cleansed. i think the trick is really wants to do what's important to you. of course,
11:54 am
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 is what harbor lou. 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 the lens neu, enough to now galloping 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 fiddler, did he come daddy?
11:55 am
lots of people can't get past the impressionistic aspect of my work question as i say. ok, impressionism, and oh wow, yes, india, and that's true. good, nice 8. but it actually goes much further into ideas of real time and the present at the 1st one is a lot. tracy's does the present leave behind it on the and how does it get reconstructed? by the time that just occurred to those authors, it's quite for the cervical, but talent in the image is permanently constructed and deconstructed through the duration ethics are just there. and we see only the front and as i don't think this is what time does it move? flow is in a vase. if you look long enough, it separates the permanent from the ephemeral. the reality bridge in venice all berlin's puts them up plots over its 10 year metamorphosis.
11:56 am
hey i. c the wonder for dorothy, his annoying math in the over $100.00 photos that i'm now taking of you. there are 100 different people in their presence and 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 space and hide all inside of put together the way the photographer imagines either for the camp is somehow only relative of our head . in the end. pictures testify tor impermanence. how temporary we are here on this planet for the temple. yeah,
11:57 am
we really just the guest is of something greater. yes. if i ask lisa i 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 then eternity will put an arm around me. and that's true. even though this film has just made us 43 minutes older, a
