The Different Time Types

Here, you may see time in a new perspective. Let’s start with a few easy mind-stretching exercises that will slowly introduce you to Psychological Time. Also known as Internal / Unconventional Time.
Then we’ll look at other Time types..

Psychological Time

Nice and slow…

Psychological Time in a broad sense describes ANY mental pressures that are processing in my mind from either the memories I hold of Yesterday or whatever refinements I produce of Tomorrow.

Simply put, it’s my conscious activity inside a line of time or timeline of events (the behind or ahead scenes) regardless of my polarity charge.

Psychological Time broadly = Any thinking.


I can also refine my ideas to ‘appear’ as THE PRESENT in an illusion because they give off a sense of bliss that tricks me into thinking I’m present or in the ‘now’.

Yesterday + Tomorrow + the idea of the Present/Now (which is actually a tricky refinement) ALL equals = Psychological Time

I know it sounds odd at first, but check it out yourself. Nowadays, I like to know that I’ve minimised any tricks I’m involved in since they take my energy!

Therefore, Psychological Time (again, broadly) = All thoughts, which covers my entire psychological activity.

Although, when implied in the general sense on this website, aka the Mindlessing Default Time, it points to a negative since a build-up of pressure makes time on the clock feel more noticeable than usual. Oh, yeah, and from a lifetime of personal frustrations!

But technically and broadly, Internal or Psychological Time includes all of my thoughts as pressures express into either a positive or negative.

Ok, let’s take a moment before we give our MIND TIME MUSCLE another good stretch

The Least-Implied Sense (Positive) & General-Implied Sense (Negative)

Moving beyond the broad sense, and with an increase of either pleasure or fear inside my thinking on the frontline (now moving into the least-implied OR general-implied psychological time senses, respectively), my attention is controlled by this strong magnetic presence.

{Least-Implied Sense aka Positive}

 On the one end, I’m magnificently LOST in the awayness from the evil Default Implied Time that causes tension. 

Ah, I’m awe, deep inside Positive Time 😃. I’m floating in the good stuff as I’ve escaped reality, or otherwise I’m just having a good time.

{/Least-Implied Sense}


{General or Implied Sense aka Negative}

 On the other, I’m undesirably STUCK-TO-TIME and anxious 

Oh crap, I’ve defaulted in the heavy stuff, again. 😒

{/General or Implied Sense}

It doesn’t get any simpler!

In another life, I used to escape my problems all the time, making the positive closer to the general-implied. But that soon changed after a MASSIVE surprise from loading up the negative!

Also, if I jump from a dark, cramped space straight over to the light using a ritual or an escape without fixing my the root of the problem, it means, I’ve redirected energy into positive sensation and put the negative on delay.

I temporarily suppressed my negative perception with something pleasantly overriding.

Time Scopes (Recap)

Psychological Time in My World
  1. Time in the broad or technical sense is none other than Yesterday and Tomorrow that is currently processing at the surface of my mind.
  2. Time in the general or implied sense (My default) points to a negative since this impacted my life the most (again, that loud ticking clock on the wall). My perception compresses, and life feels heavier/longer than usual.
  3. Time in the least-implied sense points to a positive as the wonders of being far away from Default Time means that I’ve ESCAPED reality. This perception, instead, offers a manufactured ‘spacious sensation’ that is always short-lived.

Now just a tad more time to add-on.

In Contrast to the Above

There is another class of time worth noting that everyone knows 🕒. Or perhaps, only knows.

Time can also revert to its traditional meaning; planetary, calendar or chronological time ⌚, within my language towards people. We were all raised alongside this type, so it’ll be easy to understand. In contrast to the Psychological Time Aspect, let’s now call this typical life-known version, Shared, Outer or Physical Time.

Inner vs Outer 'Shared' Time

Shared Time is a collective measure, and I need to be a part of this process to work in with the outside world.

Whereas, Psychological Time is my thinking on an emotional plane. Yesterday and Tomorrow reproduce feelings that can fuctuate my perception of time.

Shared (or Collective) Time is a measure that syncs my physical behaviour in with people, things, objects and materials. My movements and activities require an interval with the outside world. Otherwise, my relationship with you and everyone/thing else, along with my health, will suffer.

Great! Now that you’ve broadened your perspective (unless you already felt it this way) let’s explore more time systems (or subsystems and variants).
