Do you know that when a subject move faster that the other, that particular subject’s time will be relatively slow in the view of the other. In other words, when you move fast and I stay still, your 1 hour will be longer than my 1 hour in comparison with my time. That is relativity. Hence the space travel paradox (the space traveler will get older slower than the people on earth).
However, it’s not about space and time that I want to write. It’s about living in both blog world and (so-called) real world in the same time. Like what we are doing right now.
I’ve been experiencing this for already a few weeks. Read carefully or else it’s really hard to understand.
- When I dedicate more to the blog world (blogging and reading blogs), the real world will seems so slow, 1 day may seems like 3 days.
- When I start playing and chatting with friends more in the real world, the blog world seems to left me behind so fast, when I try to get back to the blog world, I felt so far behind.
- Obviously blogs move faster than earth, thus their time become relatively slower than the real world’s time.
In practical term
- When I left my laptop one day (24 hours) untouched, when I open my rss/feed reader, hundreds of new post that I want/need to read and comments. Impossible for me to comment them all.
- When I am in front of the computer all day long, suddenly all idea come out to blog. Most of the time, I felt boring because I got no more new post to comment.
- When I so involved in the real world, I sleep a lot. But when I am in blog world, I sleep less.
This is not scientific but I really can feel it first hand and still feeling it as I type. Maybe some social scientist should get a doctorate doing this research. I also postulate that the more blogs/news/site that we want to read, the faster the blog world will be. Who knows maybe this theory will be called Alvin’s Postulates. Yeah… or maybe one day virtual and reality are indistinguishable.
(Note: actually I want to say sorry because I cannot read or visit or comments to all blogs that I usually visit in the past)
