“There are always moments when one feels empty and estranged. Such moments are most desirable, for it means the soul has cast its moorings and is sailing for distant places. This is detachment -- when the old is over and the new has not yet come. If you are afraid, the state may be distressing, but there is really nothing to be afraid of. Remember the instruction: Whatever you come across -- go beyond.”
Stop ignoring science. 25 seconds are at least twice less than 30 years ago! The Earth rotates quicker around the Sun now, and time shrinks. So does distance btw but people notice that less because they explain it by modern technology.
