Palpatine's Way on Heidegger's monstrous boredom
Time is like an extended present, such as when we are enduring the drawing out of time in boredom (Langeweile, as German aptly conveys). This stretching out of time that fundamentally underlies human experience and is manifested in melancholy, boredom and depression, can be phenomenologically coaxed out of hiding when we are separated from beings. With boredom, for instance, you can imagine doing your afternoon workout by yourself and without music/T.V. to help pass the time.
