Do we live in the past?

How do we perceive time? How do we determine the past, present and the future? Is our mind constructing a timeline according to the information we receive?
David Eagleman, who is an American writer and a neuroscientist says “Time is an active construction of the brain”. He also claims that the things you see at a given moment has some influence on the future.
Eagleman has done a lot of research related to brain activities taking into consideration how time flows and how it registers in the brain. The sense of time is constructed in different parts of the brain which corresponds to different information processing units. It takes some time in order to process that information and to give a collective feeling of it.
However the time it takes to come up with a sense of time may vary from person-to-person.
These details are discussed in the video below.



I have also discussed a few other research related to the brain and time in another one of my videos. You can check that video by clicking on this link-Science guide to cricket
