      Science is about being wrong. The philosophy of science dictates that you can never actually ‘prove’ anything – you can only actually disprove things with experiments. The only thing you can conclude with an experiment is that there is either quite a lot of evidence in support of a theory – or there isn’t.

      I am very fortunate to have published articles on my work – which you can actually find a news story about it on the daily mail website if you search for: ‘Darren Rhodes daily mail’ . Alternatively, if you are interested in human time perception, then search for ‘optimal perceived timing’. Please ask me some more questions if that research brings up any questions!
