this makes me feel alive
A Single Man (2009) Pt. 2
Looking in the mirror staring back at me isn’t so much a face as the expression of a predicament.
A Single Man (2009) Pt. 1
“A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp. And the world seems so fresh as though it had all just come into existence. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be”

…………what. Can someone……….what.
It’s like the how the sun’s light takes 8 minutes to hit us. Space is so big that it takes a while for light to travel through it, so all the stars, solar systems, and space stuff you see at night when you look into the sky, it’s actually like you’re looking into the past.
And, If you look at a mirror in your bathroom, one meter away, it takes about 7x10-9 s for light to make the round trip, so technically you’re seeing 7x10-9 s into your past. Furthermore, it takes about 100-300ms for the signal to get to your brain and get processed. So what you are “seeing” now already happened a little while ago… But since everyone’s running at this delayed-reaction speed, it’s hardly noticeable for us humans in day to day interactions.
I’m having a panic attack
