New Life #351 – What Is Time?

New Life #351 – What Is Time?
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Tal Mandelbaum ben Moshe

What is the concept of time? Is it subjective? What does our feeling of time depend on and under what conditions can we understand and manage it in order to achieve something in life?


If my senses were equally impressed all the time, I wouldn’t feel time. Time is the outcome of change. Pleasure and lack of pleasure, this is what gives me the feeling of time since I am made of a desire to enjoy. Measuring whether our desire is filled or not is what gives us the feeling of time. The feeling of the future develops out of the desire to enjoy and learning how to attain what we desire.

There are many types of time, but in terms of the perception of reality, everything is in me, in my box. The perception of reality is totally subjective. Sometimes time is stretched and sometimes it goes by very quickly. We can have an objective perception of reality only if we learn how to manage our nature—the desire to enjoy. Managing the desire to enjoy means acquiring a higher desire, a desire to bestow, and working with both of them.
