How time changes when you’re dying

posted by Susannah Breslin   Mar 16, 2015

A week ago, Paul Kalanithi, who was 37, died from lung cancer. He had recently finished his neurosurgery residency at Stanford and was a father to an infant daughter.

He was also a writer. If you haven’t read his “How Long Have I Got Left?” or “Before I Go,” you should.

In this video, he talks about how time changes as you face your mortality. “Clocks are now kind of irrelevant to me,” he says. “Time, where it used to have kind of a linear progression feel to it, now feels more like a space.”
