Does Wile E. Coyote still go after Roadrunner? Is he still interested in the ostrich, or is it just a hobby among many? The relationship between physical and mental speed is one of the cornerstones of Western theories of the twentieth century. The contraction of time, rooted in the industrial revolution, has characterized the acts of man for at least a century. However, now it appears that speed is losing its meaning; it seems that the myth of speed is falling into oblivion. Of course new forms of speed, mostly virtual ones, have entered the scene. But perhaps we could say that these are just akin to the sphere of luxury. The expansion of time seems to provide new opportunities, time becomes progressively more multifaceted and horizontal (multi-tasking) rather than more vertical and linear. It is no longer a matter of acting as quickly as possible, it is about doing a lot of things at the same time. In what sense “to slow down” may represent a new value? How does this relate to expressions and culture in general?
