Eagleman explains that our perception of the present moment is a synchronization of data
received at different speeds from different senses to form perceptions, which are “representations
of information that cognitive systems can work with later” (6). Hoffman observes that due to
“fast time,” our capacity to reflect (11) and make sense of our lives, is at risk. “It is as if we have
substituted speed for significance,” she writes (13). Wittman claims that the present moment
lasts three seconds, the “maximum duration” of “the brain’s capacity for temporal integration”
Considering the ways that we humans experience time, what is the relevance and importance
of our ability to synchronize, integrate, and reflect upon the moments of our lives?
Your essay should make specific reference to all the articles in this reading set. In addition,
define and employ key terms that seem to be central to the arguments of your sources and,
therefore, to your argument as well. Among these key terms are: temporal illusions; featurebinding;
temporal-binding; synchronize; causality; perception; digital time; historical time;
subjectivity; felt time; duration; and narrative self.
It is essential that you include in your essay specific references to all three articles in the reading
set, and that you attribute any material that you summarize, quote, or paraphrase to its source.
Base your essay on the information contained in the set of readings, not on your own experience,
on outside readings, or on courses you have taken.
