We live in a narrow reality, partly conditioned by our form of perception and partly made by opinions that we have borrowed, to which our self-esteem is fastened. We fight for our opinions, not because we believe them but because they involve the ordinary feeling of oneself. Though we are continually being hurt owing to the narrowness of the reality in which we dwell, we blame life, and do not see the necessity of finding absolutely new standpoints.
All ideas that have a transforming power change our sense of reality.
In this work, the question of a new understanding of Time, and of what the life means in the light of this understanding, is discussed. The possibility of a change in the time-sense, with a changed feeling of oneself, enters into this question.
