Book: The Five Principles of Middle Way Philosophy

Chapter: e. Continuity of Time

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44176


The discontinuity of time depends on the differing way that our left hemisphere merely sequences, whilst the right experiences time passing. Applying incrementality to time prevents us fixating on one of the three times to the exclusion of others, and thus enables us to identify with our desires at different times. Temporal biases show the differing forms that this absolutization of time can take, with any view of an object having a temporal dimension. We need to shift from abstract beliefs about time to focusing on how we make judgements in time.
