Out of time

In this state, consciousness is temporarily transferred to your composer and you thus enter the world beyond your perceptions.

It is through our perceptions that we gain a sense of time.  Our perceptions are recorded at a set rate – the flicker rate of our eyes and as we remember past events they tend to get replayed at this speed, thus we are perceiving ‘through’ a log of events the whole time when we remember, and recording a log of events when we perceive, but outside our perceptions, there is no log, no flicker rate and nothing to give us any real sense of past and future.

This is a world of no time. 

The experience is thus simply that – an understanding of ‘no time’.

Alice in Wonderland

Alice had been looking over his shoulder with some curiosity. 'What a funny watch!' she remarked. 'It tells the day of the month, and doesn't tell what o'clock it is!'

'Why should it?' muttered the Hatter. 'Does YOUR watch tell you what year it is?'

'Of course not,' Alice replied very readily: 'but that's because it stays the same year for such a long time together.'

'Which is just the case with MINE,' said the Hatter.

Alice felt dreadfully puzzled. The Hatter's remark seemed to have no sort of meaning in it, and yet it was certainly English. 'I don't quite understand you,' she said, as politely as she could.

'The Dormouse is asleep again,' said the Hatter, and he poured a little hot tea upon its nose.

The Dormouse shook its head impatiently, and said, without opening its eyes, 'Of course, of course; just what I was going to remark myself.'
