This Clip was taken from the BBC's "Time" series that explores the fabric of time and how we perceive it. This section is placed after an experiment where a man was dropped out of the sky and asked to read a number that was flashing faster than the human eye can detect off a device on his arm. Imagine the human eyes 'frame rate' and the number being flashed far beyond that. As the man tried reading the number as he free-flew he was able to read at least one of the numbers every time. Proving that under high adrenaline situations time literally slows down for a human. In a lab, scientists experimented on mice using other drugs known for comparable effects, namely cocaine and marijuana.
