A second must have meant quite a different thing to Aristotle in comparison to what it may mean to us now. The way Isaac newton looked at time, is unlike the way we experience time internally.
Time is not only numbers and duration measured on a clock. Once we speak to an astronomer, a psychologist, a biologist, a historian or to the person running to catch a train, the range of possibilities in perceiving time opens up.
In my thesis I research the notion of time through a dialogue between scientists, philosophers and artists. I discover new ways of thinking about time and duration; from the theory of special relativity, to the beauty of experiencing inner time, to the paradox of trying to define the ‘now’.
