# Psychological time

If the time rate is kept constant, the increasing rate is kept decreasing.

— Me@2011.08.25

For example, assume that my initial salary is HK\$10,000 per month, and the increasing rate is HK\$1,000 per month.

Then my salaries are

10,000 –> 11,000 –> 12,000 –> 13,000 –> 14,000 –> …

The corresponding increasing rates, in terms of percentage, are

10% –> 9.09% –> 8.33% –> 7.69% –> …

# Status quo bias

Whenever there are choices, people tend to choose the status quo,

whether they should or not,

for the uncertainty seems to be much less,  and the responsibility seems to be much lower,

although sometimes it is not the case.

# Time travel, 3.1.2

Time is other things, 2

.

Let A = your blog and B, C = other blogs.

Also, let the indices 1 = yesterday, 2 = today, and 3 = tomorrow.

.

# How to send your today’s blog to the future?

Don’t update your blog until tomorrow:

B1 –> B2 –> B3

A1 –> A2 –> A2

C1 –> C2 –> C3

As long as you keep your today’s blog (A2) from changing, it goes to tomorrow (B3, C3).

.

# How to send your today’s blog to yesterday?

Don’t update your blog (A2) and revert other blogs (B2, C2) to their yesterday’s versions (B1, C1):

B1 –> B2 –> B1

A1 –> A2 –> A2

C1 –> C2 –> C1

Then, A2 goes back to yesterday (B1, C1).

However, the energy required for doing so is too much.

# Flow in time, 2

Time is other things.

Subjective time (or personal time) refers to your feelings on other things.

When you say “time is faster”, you mean other things are faster.

When you say “time is flowing”, you mean even if you do not change, other things keep changing.

When you say “time stops”, you mean other things stop changing.

# Flow in time

We do not flow in time, for we are part of (objective) time, the causal network.

When you say “I am flowing in time”, what you really mean is that even if you do not change, other things keep changing.

When discussing objective time, you should not separate yourself from other objects of the causal universe.

# Time travel, 3

Cumulative concept of time, 10

You can travel to the future since your future-self contains your present-self:

you travel to the future as long as you, somehow, do not change your present-self.

However, you cannot travel to the past, because by definition, your past-self does not contain your present-self:

your present-self is neither part of the past, nor part of your past-self.

Bootstrapping is a term used in computer science to describe the techniques involved in writing a compiler (or assembler) in the target programming language which it is intended to compile. Applying this technique leads to a self-hosting compiler.
