Welcome to Conversation With Katherine Conceptual Time vs Real Time
I am a lion on the plains of an African grassland. I am happily lounging with my pride and I take a look at my paw and I say OMG it is 8:00 and it is time to eat. I gather my pride and I roar it is time to hunt. Now my pride is not hungry but after all it is time to eat. I check my stomach and I am not hungry but my paw says it is TIME. So off we go a hunting because TIME told us to eat.
Now this is a tongue in cheek statement. Lions don't have time on their paws and hunting is done when they start feeling hungry. Time is not something that is important to the lion. I have identified two types of Time. Conceptual Time and Real Time. Conceptual time is how we humans think about time and our relationship to time. Real Time is fixed, 60 seconds for a minute, 60 minutes to an hour, 24 hours in a day.
