PERFORMING FASTER IN TIME
In my novel Time Is Gold, Maxi is an elite marathon runner who controls her performance time to improve. She learns to use the technique ‘flow’ helped by her partner Jack, a physics PhD, who researches time dilation in ‘extreme flow’, according to Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity. Her intense training raises her neural transmission speed near to the speed limit, causing her time to dilate, by analogy with travel in space.
Her willpower and physical ability are strengthened by practice and she gets more running done in longer seconds. Maxi’s training is epistemological, based on self-coaching. Her preparation for races is advised by her entourage of experts in psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and Zen. Maxi’s winning performances on the international marathon competition circuit cause jealousy and she is falsely accused of taking performance enhancing substances.
Many performers in time stop improving when they reach glass ceilings set by others’ time agendas. If their performance time is referred instead to times they have experienced in practice, they can feel their way to improvement.
The book is on Amazon and chronicles Maxi’s running career and results in competition.
