Once in awhile I will read up on it and think about it so much that I feel surreal, like an outer body experience. Perhaps that's what meditation does when buddhists focus on the 'now'. It's engaging the sensory part of the brain and dropping the past/future part.

So, what your saying is, if I want time to slow down all I'd have to do is let the in-laws move in. *shudders*. I don't know if I'd want to live anymore. Confused

LJ have you ever tried to explain that part of relativity to a creationsist? If you do, bring a sandwich because it's a tough row to hoe. I actualy picked up a book titled How to Explain Relativity to Your Dog, evidently dogs are more open to abstract thinking.

DLJ - My inlaws are like parking by a super massive balck hole, they cause my watch to stop.

Yes I have tried explaining it to a creationist AKA my in-laws. Time went freaking backwards! To like 1890. They are mennonites from an amish colony. I wear the colour red in their presence and I'm a whore. Life is so grande when they are around. Sadcryface2

Egads woman! You got me beat on the inlaw front.

My creationist is some odd mix of pentecostal/catholic kind of thingy. I was told that relativity is wrong and that Einstein believed in god, that was the sum total of the scientific refutation I was given. Just how it was wrong was never made clear Consider
