Project Title

The Flow of Time, Physics, and Observation

Project Summary

Is the flow of time an illusion? If so, what is its explanation? Given that the flow of time seems to be a deep, mysterious and universal aspect of human life, we ought to investigate its origin. The present project draws on insights from psychology, biology and physics to understand why creatures model time as flowing -- even if, as physics suggests, it isn't.
