The Psychology of Time and the Paradox of How Impulsivity and Self-Control Mediate Our Capacity for Presence

my notes ( ? )

a fascinating inquiry into how our subjective experience of time’s passage shapes everything from our emotional memory to our sense of self....the disorienting sense that time isn’t something which happens to us — rather, we are time....
Distracted by the obligations of everyday activities, we are no longer aware of ourselves…... loss of contact with one’s own self... to feel that one’s life is flowing more ... fully ... seek out new situations ... novel experiences that, because of their emotional value, are retained by memory ... If one challenges oneself consistently, it pays off... as the feeling of having lived fully ... for a long time...
the more memories we encode in a given period of time, the longer and fuller it will appear... as we increasingly outsource our memory to ... disembodied digital memory. We vacate the moment in order to document it... end up remembering the photograph rather than the experience itself...
People who meticulously pay attention to every entry in their calendars ... always working toward a goal — forgo opportunities for experience. Time that is felt and lived... is made up of moments of fulfillment, often in the company of good friends or a beloved partner.
