How do you perceive time? Doesn't it all seem distinct and separate, or does it blend together to the point where past, present, and future are all kinda blurry?

Personally, I'm opted out. I don't really pay attention to time like other people. Not like I don't look at clocks, but more like it doesn't really feel as if I'm aging.

I love clocks...but I don't believe in "time" itself. Time being anything that has been, will be, or is. Really, "time" is a human creation to measure events going by (I believe), and so isn't "real".

Anyway, in answer to the question: "Time" is blurry, in a sense, to me

I view past periods generally in chunks with each having some central theme to them. The size of the chunk varies based on the theme, and how much that theme can be broken down. The more I can break it down, the shorter each chunk becomes while becoming more numerous. Almost like if the theme is too broad it becomes a year. More specific themes become months, and so forth until they are so specialized they become times during a particular day.

For present and future things? Again, they're pretty much in chunks focused around whatever is anticipated to occur, and when it does actually occur.

Of course, these chunks are all relative to another... kind of like time itself.

Being an amnesiac, it is kind of strange. Like, I will leave my room at 8:00 AM, and by the time I get to the kitchen it will be 8:45am, though it seem like it happens instantaneously. It also happens in reverse....somehow. Like leaving at 9:00am, and when I get to the kitchen it'll be 7:00am. I don't really get it.

are we talking about perception of time, memory of time, time as an actual physical effect, all different things.

I don't even know. I see my doctor once a month, and the time between appointments doesn't seem long. When I look at the month in general, even though it's the same duration between appointments, the month seemed to go by slow. Then I realize it's already almost April. So in that aspect, I don't really grasp time well.

I'm a young adult, and while I do young adult things, I still see myself as a kid. For no particular reason either. Sure, I've matured small bits over the years, but I guess time hasn't passed long enough to convince me that I'm a young adult. That might be more of a psychological thing, than the ability to perceive time though. I dunno.

I used to see time as past, present and future. Since my first stroke, I see it as one huge anarchistic puzzle with many pieces missing.

The past can be kind of a blur to me. I remember things clearly, but when they happened doesn't make a lot of a difference.
As for the present, time is important to me. Coming in late for appointments or meetings feels rude. I'd rather not go at all than come in 10+ minutes late.
As a child, time slowly flowed by. I slowly absorbed the world and payed attention to small details.
I try to make the days seem faster right now by not over-thinking about things. I want to get all this work and school done as fast as possible. Though necessary, it all blends together and seems unimportant compared to living and experiencing the world.

It goes by so slowly, and time can do much..

I wonder. It's not like I was very specific, what with the title being perception of time and me directly asking how you perceive time.

Time perception is a construction of the brain that is manipulable and distortable under certain circumstances.

It seems to drag if you haven't had sleep the previous day, and it seems to go by quickly if you're doing something enjoyable..probably because it's not foremost on your mind. Now the perception of time and its actual recorded passing, are two different things.

Like possible points in a timeline, and another dimension.



But fast and shitty. It depends. If I break my pattern then it slows down but if I'm doing my daily routine kind of thing then fast and shitty.

But shit! I wanna redo D:<
