The 2nd Edition of Deconstructing Time - essay-blogs about the human experience of time. We are immersed in time. We take time as a fact of life and think very little about its workings, yet we are at its mercy. In a sense time is all you have: on your gravestone will be your name and the date you were born and the date you died. What could we gain by obtaining a perspective, by standing a bit outside of time? Although the clock will still continue to tick, your relation to time will be changed. It is the modern human -- i.e. Homo sapiens sapiens -- sense of time that is the key difference between humans and the other animals. And further I believe that time, as we experience it, is created by our uniquely human brains and is critical to our sense of consciousness.PICTURE CAPTION: TOP: Famous photograph of the Wright Brothersa#39; first flight in 1903 at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, USA.
