I've been stumbling onto the mentioning of this particular breathing exercise in a book I'm currently reading.

This is apparently one of the things that Aleister Crowley was actually serious about advocating.

Going to look into it and give it a try.

Reports to follow!

I've never heard of this before. I bet it's at least as effective as other breathing methods and mediation. I find meditation and other relaxation techniques to be very helpful, but it's hard to convince myself to do them because it feels like a waste of time doing nothing, even though it isn't. Let us know how it goes for you!

Definitely depends on how one views time for sure. Linear time makes it so everyone is in a dilemma: time can only be spent or wasted.

I believe in disregarding linear time

I'm afraid I don't understand what the alternative is.

There are a few alternatives in my eyes:

Cyclical time is one, which was the means of perceiving time before modern linear time. It was a time in which time was not something that could be wasted or spent, it is the same day coming back again.

Or, there is "no time," a lot of eastern religions are founded on a firm sense that there is no past and no future. They claim and believe there is only this present moment.

It's not easy to do because we work jobs or go to school and find ways to make money, which revolves around the peak commercial hours.
