“You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable.
You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons.
Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing.” -On Time, Gilbran
 
Our decisions are always faced with past experiences and considerations for the future, but what time really is, it still affects scholars of different fields.
For such abstract thing, it is difficult to estimate, and it deeply affects the life and operation of various creatures. How do our brains master this kind of "stream"? How does the process of evolution give us the ability to make our own decisions?

Do you want to be our partner, study the form of time, and research about how does time affect our decision-making?
