Technically, it's correct. But the 'now' that you see on your watch is actually a few nanoseconds behind the now that it actually is. The now that you see is a now from the very recent past.

But, then again, it's always now so it doesn't matter.

You watch Vsauce, don't you?

That is true, because it takes times for the information gets from your eye to your brain, which would actually be a second, not just a couple nano seconds.
User avatar #24 to #21 - pornzmon (08/02/2012) [-]
actually i believe it's about half a second
#25 to #24 - realyboredguy (08/02/2012) [-]
Might be wrong, but I was pretty sure hearing 1 second in a documentary. hmmm
User avatar #92 to #25 - JoshBauer (08/02/2012) [-]
Everyone's reaction times would be **** if it was a 1 second delay. I've heard like, a thousandth of a millisecond.
#113 to #92 - dubzzzz (08/02/2012) [-]
Its 3 milliseconds
Its 3 milliseconds

I really doubt that.. the information travels through through your nerves at I think the speed of light, so it should be much faster since it's not a very long distance.
User avatar #26 to #21 - rokkarokkaali (08/02/2012) [-]
I think I remember it being about .8 something. So it could be .8 of a second.
User avatar #48 to #26 - waaw (08/02/2012) [-]
That doesn't sound right. .8 seconds is actually a pretty long time, and nerve impulses go really fast.
#28 to #26 - realyboredguy (08/02/2012) [-]
Ah, possible.
User avatar #134 to #21 - catassassin (08/02/2012) [-]
It should also take a very small amount of time for the light from the watch to reach your eyes.
#167 to #134 - realyboredguy (08/03/2012) [-]
Oh the light wont take any time reaching your eyes, unless you're looking at something a couple of thousand of kilometers away, there is practically no delay. The delay is the information being processed.
User avatar #168 to #167 - catassassin (08/03/2012) [-]
I would think there would be some delay (after all light doesn't travel instantaneously). It would be miniscule of course, and basically unnoticeable, but it would still be there
#169 to #168 - realyboredguy (08/03/2012) [-]
Yes, but in every day use, What you will be looking it will be a couple meters away?
Light travels at 36 000 kilometer second. In meters, 36 000 000 in a second. But yeah the delay would be there, but irrelevant, unless you're looking at the sun, which would be a 8 minutes delay.
User avatar #170 to #169 - catassassin (08/03/2012) [-]
Yeah, that's basically what I was trying to convey with "very small." Guess I should've gone more into detail haha
#171 to #170 - realyboredguy (08/03/2012) [-]
Yeah you were right, I don't know why I replied.
#173 to #171 - realyboredguy (08/03/2012) [-]
Oh right now I remember, it was because I thought, that you thought, that when I was talking about the one second delay, I was talking about the light reaching your eyes, and then you corrected me by saying it was smaller then that.
Still my mistake, though.

The brain takes several milliseconds to process everything happening (the taller the longer). So we are always living slightly in the past.
User avatar #77 to #53 - wyrddarcnyzz (08/02/2012) [-]
It's still now by the time your brain comprehends it. Your perception of time does not change time itself, only your view of it.

maybe I should have read this comment before posting my own douche comment saying the exact thing.... oh well

"My dear sir, that is just where you are wrong. That is just where the whole world has gone wrong. We are always getting away from the present movement. Our mental existences, which are immaterial and have no dimensions, are passing along the Time-Dimension with a uniform velocity from the cradle to the grave. Just as we should travel down if we began our existence fifty miles above the earth's surface."
