Can we slow down time?

In the following video, string theory pioneer Michio Kaku investigates claims of time dilation under the influence of adrenaline and other chemicals, including various drugs. These substances can apparently affect the chemical pathway of our stopwatch, effectively slowing down our perception of time, bullet-time style.

  1. Kiltak, this is very interesting documentary. It reminds of this movie Crank, the guy on adrenalin. It also proves that humans are capable or thinking and perceiving faster then the usual rate. But this is kind of directly dependent on other functions in your body. People say that we use 10% of our brains but we fail to note that all other human characteristics like walking, coordination, in general things that we take for granted, do require a lot of processing power. So although we can work faster, it is unfeasible to do so unless we compromise other areas of our body. It feels like constructing a character for one of these RPG games. You have 20 points you have to spread it equally to various features. If you put to much brain, that will effect your agility.

    cheers,

  3. I remember that experiment where they fired a beam of light at an aircraft and measured the time it took to get there. I can't recall all teh details but they found out that the aircraft was moving through time faster then where the beam of light was fired from. so in theory yo0 really can slow time down.

  5. based on the Theory of Special Relativity it is mathematically possible to travel slow or fast through time and adjust it the way you like. still theory though :)

  7. i like the theory, but i can't help but wonder if it's just our brain reacting to an extremely detrimental situation and focusing more intently on one thing, rather than the usual amount one experiences through normal everyday activity.

    • i think it's definitely something like that. if you tried to induce something like this for the purpose of slowing time down and did it for an extended period of time it would probably harm you a lot. have there been any updates with this?
