I'm a new user, have been smoking for about a year now. Me and my regular smokin buddy have formulated a theory on what weed does to you. This theory is very scientific in nature. Not sure to call it yet, looking for some good titles. So in my past experiences of smoking time constantly seems to get slower. It may be that weed slows your reaction times, but i deny this because of these observations. Usually the next day (if you smoke and pass out) or when you start to burn and the high dissolves, time seems to go by faster, atleast for me. Now what me and my friend have formulated is that weed actually excels your "internal clock", therefore you are going through life faster then usual. To believe this far into the theory, one would have to believe that time is actually an 11th dimension (string theory supports this idea). All dimensions in this theory (3 of which we observe, six were "compacted") are vibrating strings of subatomic particles which have originated from the big bang. The strings are infinite 1-dimensional mathematical objects. They start, and supposedly end coming from the big bang, to whatever one believes will be the end of mankind (apocalypse and whatnot). Some adaptions to the theory state that the string Is it possible that when high, one is vibrating faster through the 11th dimension? Or perhaps is one vibrates faster in all dimensions. Or even, one is elevated to a different dimension, the 11th dimension of time, which is not tangible in reality. To read more about string theory and the 11-dimension universe, visit Eleventh Dimension Now why, if getting high makes you go faster through time, does it appear slower while high? The reason lies behind Einstein's Theory of Relativity: Time Dilation. His theory states that two people who have differing rates of velocity will actually see the other's "clock" as wrong. Time dilation is existent all the time, however can only be noticed at great differences in speeds. So we think that being "high" either makes one move faster through the 11th dimension of time, or it really makes us "high" pulling us to a different dimension or just a distant place away from gravitational masses, where we observe the world. This can explain why some people see things more clearly and things make more sense while high. Everything else seems slower (although faster), so one has more time to think and make inferences. To explain the reasoning for time slowing down during burns, we use this same theory. As one accelerates through the 11th dimension, he gains time on the rest of the world. That time gained needs to be lost, or the person's world would be very unbalanced. Burn time is the time that a person theoretically slows down in the 11th dimension. That person see's the external clock as moving faster, although he is moving slower. I'm not sure if time dilation proves this or not, but its just another insight into the big picture of why we see time as slower when blazed. Any additions, critical comments or what have you are welcomed. Please do not degrade the theory because it sounds completely insane, it is just a fun thing to think about.
