When is now? Seems like a pretty simple question… just look at your watch. But do you and I share the same “now”? Let’s journey from Einstein’s thought experiments about relativity to cutting edge neuroscience research to try and answer that question.

At a security station I have a monitor displaying feeds from dozens of cameras. Each camera has a different lag when sending me information. I can see people moving through hallways from different angles at different times. I can hear a door open before I see it happen. I can see someone walking on the sidewalk before they have left the building. This perception can make you feel like a higher being.
