we don't know the actual speed of things happening, only how we as humans perceive it. Time slows down for us when we dream and sometimes it seems to go faster, but we don't experience any changes in pitch or motion, can our brain stabilize everything so precisely?
from a visual perspective time is the distance that light travels to your eye, filtered by the brain at a frame rate. looking at a room with a clock you see things in a 2 dimensional perspective where as everything moves at the same rate, not so. the object closest to you is being perceived faster than the object behind it at a fractional rate that we consider to be negligible. everyone processes time in general at different rates, and time itself is relative to gravity as well (and on a planetary scale, rotation and the distance from the sun). so instead of time being linear it's actually a chaotic jumble of numbers universally. the 4th dimensional sense of time is when past present and future exist all at once having an interaction with each other in your 2nd dimensional state. past affecting the present and the future leaving calling cards! as you go higher in dimensional states you realize you can play a weird game of chess with these concepts which becomes a simple concept of it's own.
You only see stuff in 2 dimesnios if a) you've lost the ability to see through one eye or b) you're looking at something drawn on a 2 dimensional plane, i.e a picture or painting
please correct me if I'm wrong
Actually a friend of mine has some medical condition which messes with her depth perception. She claims she basically only really sees in 2D which makes driving and throwing/catching a lot harder for her.
