time perspective

I mentioned a part of this presentation from Dr. Philip Zimbardo this morning in church. For anyone interested, the clip below is a roughly 10 minute animated synopsis of a talk from Dr. Zimbardo at the RSA on the psychology of time perspective. I’ve watched this one several times, and the full lecture from which it is drawn. Interesting stuff, but then I’m also a nerd.

Since it’s one of my primary filters, I couldn’t help but wonder how this might inform both our understanding of conversion and therefore our evangelistic efforts, and our Christian formation as disciples of Jesus.
