A quick search in the Net reveals that our vision is continuous. We do not, in fact, separate our perceptions into frames per second. In the video industry, video footage is normally separated into discreet photos moving across light at the rate of 24 fps or more often 30 fps. That is to say, our eyes can perceive of a movie running at 30 fps as a continuous picture instead of individual frames. In fact, some believe we can perceive up to 100fps as a highly detailed rendering of the reality we each face in our daily lives.
So then, consider the flow of reality through our brain. Assuming, a 16-hour day, and perception at the relative slow rate of 30fps. In that day, and at that rate, we can easily perceive 1,728,000 or about 1.7 million different events of reality (30 X 60 X 60 X 16.)
That’s 1.7 million chances to take action to change reality, in one day! So, the next time you think you just don’t have the time or, are too busy to consider what it is that you do in a day, remember this. Change occurs in less time than one event of perception as described in our formula. And that change is the turning point separating a self-destructive life from a happy and content life.
1.7 million chances to make yourself better. To get along with others and to leave, anger, frustration, envy, resentment and hatred behind. 1.7 million chances to feel love, experience the beauty of the world and to appreciate the loving gift of life itself.
Did you waste your chances yesterday? That’s OK. Because you have just as many tomorrow. Embrace life, turn to acceptance, gratitude, cooperation and empathy for the plight of others. Face the light and shun the dark. Use your life wisely to make things better for all.
