Philip Zimbardo’s secret powers of time

Having lived in small towns and big cities (let alone different countries and cultures), time and its different ways of understanding it, has always been one of my biggest intellectual preoccupations. Probably since the beginning of the Modernity we have been confused with the idea that time is a constant flux that can be precisely measured and that we have to adjust our lives to this tick. Sometimes, I really doubt about it.

In this video there is a beautiful visual unfolding of Philip Zimbardo’s explanation of the different ways of understanding time (see his book “The Time Paradox: The New Psychology of Time That Will Change Your Life”).

And an extra note: it is amazing how clear even the most complex concepts evolve when they are drawn instead of written. I consider that we all should develop this visual literacy and being able of not only seeing and appreciating it but also doing it.
