“Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have been linked to abnormalities in dopamine levels in the brain as well as to noticeable impairments in time perception. Neuropharmacological research indicates that the internal clock, used to time durations in the seconds-to-minutes range, is linked to dopamine function in the basal ganglia.”
welp that explains it. i constantly feel like i have a different relationship to time than other people do. its like im in a swimming competition with the world and my lane is inexplicably made of jello. i mean sometimes its fun, but when it comes down to it i just cant win.
I totally knew this, bio-psych for the win.
“I want you to miss me. I want you to recognise me in your morning cereal and the voice of your favourite singer. I want you to wonder where I am when your fingers are stretched beneath your waistband, when you’re lighting up, when you’re tripping up that uneven step on your basement stairs. I want you to think of me when you look into your teacup and your rear-view mirror. I want you.”
