Those hours between time zones on a long flight. What happens to that time? I had a teacher who theorized that after a long distance on a plane, our ethereal body has to catch up with our physical body. This can take a while, especially when that distance is great. He believed this to be the explanation for jet lag. He also felt strongly that, when returning from a particularly enjoyable trip or memorable experience, it is important not to unpack a suitcase immediately and instead let the energy from those travels escape slowly, but that’s a different topic. My primary concern is this: What if the time I was on the plane was when I would have met someone who would have changed my life completely or when I might have bought the winning Powerball ticket?
