How important can time be? Well, what if studying after your exam influenced the results of that exam?
Dr Daryl Bem, of Cornell University, carried out a fascinating experiment (2011) that challenges the concept of time.
Just suppose for a moment that time is cyclical and not in a straight line?
Bem gave two randomly selected groups of students a simple test. One group was instructed not to study for the test at all, while the other group was told to study after taking the test.
The students who studied afterwards did better than the group who did not study at all!
This experiment as you can imagine caused a great deal of interest all around the world. It was replicated 90 times in 33 different laboratories in 14 different countries. A meta-analysis of all these results suggested that yes indeed, studying after a test improved your test score.
Even if you look to challenge such research, time is a really fascinating concept to consider.
Culturally there are different conceptualisations of time. In Western countries it is common to have a three part structure; Past, Present and Future, with time moving in one direction without any repetition. But this is not universal across all cultures. In Eastern cultures there is a cyclical notion of time emphasising repetition and is very much influenced by the cycles within the natural world.
In some Buddhist cultures life itself goes around in a circle. Whatever we plan, however we organise our particular world, generation follows generation.
Imagine how you could influence your life in holding time as past, present and future, all combining and being lived cyclically. Changing one small thing would make a significant difference to your past, present and future and it circles around you continuously. You own your destiny, you can change your life.
