Boing Boing reveals the secret of time management

(via Boing Boing) Apparently the function of awe is time management?  This video has some pretty crazy implications.

Sorry about the annoying guitar riff going throughout the clip.

I can't help wondering if this is one of the major advantages of religion -- an institution primarily devoted to manufacturing a sense of awe, very devout religious people might be better at time management than less devout.  It also probably explains why people who are super into the philosophy of whatever their job is seem to be both better at it and better people in general.

I do, however, intend to actually read the research on this, and not take a three-minute video clip as the final word. I'll get back to you about how that goes.
