Honestly, this video is making me feel old. I used to watch all of Vsauce's videos when I was like 15-16, I'm in my 20's now.

get thee out of thy 'protagonist syndrome', thou art not ab ovo, thou art but in medias res; thou shouldst sonder to break the entrapment of chronocentric illusion which to Michael is chronosonder. ... chill.. just taking me notes here. "stop!, wait a minute" that is prospective, but "how long did u wait?" is retrospective. Enough internet for today.

The reason our brains get so confused about some of these concepts is this is the first time technology and the world has changed so much over so little time, and our brains just haven’t gotten the time to adjust to that (through evolution and stuff). As cavemen this just didn’t happen.

*The conquest of space made the world smaller and now the conquest of time has made our lives smaller. We live after the conquering of time but before its resurrection. In the mean time, make some time for time to control you. Be bored, miss out, fall behind. Feel time passing. Lose track of time while experiencing only what your body can alone. You might not have the time of your life, but you will have more time of your life.*
