    In 2011 Rose Center Anniversary Isaac Asimov Debate, Dr. Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist talks about time duality. is there any evidence of the existence of 2 time dimensions, ie psychological time and real time?

    Psychological time is not a dimension, it's what takes place in the brain, a very messy place for real physics

    but if time is consistent and goes straight in one direction like newtonian time, why is there a possiblility of time relativity in our brains?

    The fact that I am me at this point in space and time and not one of the other conscious beings at different points in space and time seems to be a violation of symmetry.

    Because our brains are human. They involve perception, not physics.
