Today's Seth really shows that we're watching a movie projected by what we know of as the brain.  This correlates with the earlier Seth comment on how children have to learn time.  I experienced the slowing down of time in a dramatic way in a CF-5 flight test at high G and maximum roll acceleration.  A few seconds of the manoeuvre seemed like minutes.  Needless to say, it took a while for me to synch up the perceptive functions of the brain after that!  Most people experience this kind of time dilation in sudden, potentially catastrophic events where time slows down and they start replaying their life.  I've had a few of these too.  I suppose too much wine and states of ecstasy are much more enjoyable ways to play with time!

"In a manner of speaking, the activity of your brain adjusts the speed with which you, as a physical creature, perceive life's events.  Theoretically, those events could be slowed down or run at a quicker pace.  Again in a manner of speaking, the sound, vision, dimensional solidarity and so forth are "dubbed in".  The picture runs at the same speed, more or less.  The physical senses chime in together to give you a dramatic sensual chorus, each "voice" keeping perfect time with all the other sensual patterns so that as a rule there is harmony and a sense of continuity, with no embarrassing lapses.
"The same applies to your thoughts, which if you bother to listen seem to come smoothly one after another, more or less following the sequence of exterior activity."
(The Nature of the Psyche, Session 794)
