Time after time ...

... David Eagleman and Mysteries of the Brain : The New Yorker. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

... how much of what we perceive exists outside of us and how much is a product of our minds? Time is a dimension like any other, fixed and defined down to its tiniest increments: millennia to microseconds, aeons to quartz oscillations. Yet the data rarely matches our reality.

I have myself had the experience of time slowing down as I fell. So I know that is precisely true.
