Information Technology and the Sense of Time
Computer is a tool for recording. Life log technologies enabled us to record our experiences in densities that defy comparison with previous cases. In addition, we can relive these experiences in highly lively manners by using VR technologies. Similarly, advanced simulation technologies will make highly accurate predictions about the future possible. With the background of the cutting-edge information technologies, I would like to think about how our sense of time might shift.
