Time (Stories & Time)

. Describe the life-experiencing self as a series of moments, each with a value. The mind sees it differently. Remembering self tells stories and makes choices; neither the stories nor the choices properly represent time. In storytelling mode, an episode is represented by a few critical moments, especially the beginning, the peak and the end.

. As duration is neglected so is time neglected. This causes experiences that retain their attention value in the long term to be appreciated less than they deserve to be.

"...The mind is good with stories but does not appear to be well designed for the processing of time..."

Daniel Kahneman 2012
