it would make no difference whatsoever. to me the question is completely pointless. acting under false pretences may be still acting to the best of current knowledge. that suffices.
whatever quantum mechanics may suggest about the effects of observation, it has very limited impact on my daily life. but the law has introduced 'voyeurism' as another gag to choke (and arouse) curiosity and to pay a tribute to quantum mechanics.

time depends. it stretches and contracts according to the attention you pay to the very moment. you can make it breathe...
3.a. into the past ?

1. Where is the place of the subject within Time ?
yes. those completely gone apeshit hack it down to tinier and ever so tinier fractions. those with a rest of sanity don't. they are almost extinct, though...

yes. to me love is 'amour fou'. how do mad people perceive time? same thing !
Do you prefer to make love quickly or slowly or extremely slowly ?
When, how and why ?
if there is a perception of time, then there is no orgasm. orgasm is the only naturally available genuine state of being - as far as the euro-'merican 'way of life' is concerned. it provides a very precious moment when the poor animal 'h.s.' is relieved from all wishes and needs, and the truly marvellous can be per/re - ceived.
