Wandering Path


There are three times shown. One a wandering path, effected by circumstances. One a cycle of the days, and a daily cycle, shown reversed, as here you are the center with time moving around you.

Contraction


Time for a child is eternal compared to time for an elderly person, for whom time flies past. For a child, a day is about 30 hours, in old age a day rushes past in an hour and a half.There is some experimental evidence for this. If you ask computer literate 20 yr. olds to purchase items in a hierarchical site (amazon, or buy.com), then ask the same task of computer literate 60 year olds – both will tell you that it took them about 4 minutes, even though the 20 yr. olds did it in 2 minutes and the 60 yr. olds did it in 8 minutes.

Pie Chart


When she was 6 years old this Korean woman had to draw a pie-chart that represented her day at school. These drawings were put on a wall and she then had to keep to this schedule.
