Intuition of time (T): imagination, memories, predictions; suggestion, hypnosis, visions, symbolism; reflection, premonitions, omens; nervous system.
The state of T at the intellectual level forms the most abstract type of thinking, which reflects the global processes found in the external world and which are caused by time. The law of entropy – the steady shift from more organized life forms to more chaotic simple ones – is at the heart of T-thinking. Birth, becoming, death, and rebirth in other forms – this kind of information is being processed in the human brain while in this state.
If in the I-state a person obtains knowledge from within themselves, from their subconscious psychic layers, then in the T-state information comes from outside – from the "Cosmos". Intuition of time thinking occurs through dynamic visual forms. Eyes go up and flutter a little, as if trying to follow the movement of the perceived image.
A stable expression of the T-state in a society leads to the informal role of a "mirror". In the T-state, a person can predict the entire socio-psychological dynamic of a team. A person turns into a sensitive sensor of any changes within a team. Like a drop of water, the person reflects all the bad and good that was, is and will be in this group of people. In the T-state, a person combines within two contradictory roles of being a "prophet", and at the same time being a victim who will be blamed for the group’s failures.
In psychological terms, the T-state is experienced as feeling victimized (or sacrificed). This state is the most religiously colored, as it desires for freedom from everything earthly and carnal, anything that binds the spirit. In the state of T, a person is drawn to the mysterious, otherworldly, and transcendental. In its extreme expression, the T-state leads to hallucinations, the appearance of various mystical visions. A person with a persistent T-state is most susceptible to hypnosis. Another manifestation of the intuition of time is feeling vulnerable to fate, lacking free will, existing at the behest of higher powers.
One of the most important signs of a T-state is the loss of body sensations. In the T-state, a person feels neither pain nor carnal pleasure. The lifelessness of the body manifests itself in its fragility, paleness, and inner emptiness. The T-state is expressed through posture of humility: hunched shoulders, retracted or, conversely, elongated neck, tilted or raised head, general bending of the body. The movements in this state are uniformly slow and smooth. It feels like a waking dream. The eyes of a person in the T-state are very sad, they seem to reflect dim and mysterious "moonlight".
