Simple answer to the OP: No, it isn´t.

It's just your perception of time. When you're anesthetized for surgery you're effectively asleep, and it only seem to be mere moments that have passed when you've woken up while the surgeons have been working away on you for an hour or so.

Yep. When I had a minor procedure done, the anesthesiologist told me that she was administering, I remember thinking to myself, "It won't work on me because I'm strong willed..."

In what seemed like an instant from that moment, I was being carted down the hall with florescent lights passing by above me on my way to recovery. I had asked if they cancelled the procedure or something because (in my mind) there was no way the 45 minutes they predicted for the procedure had passed. The nurse assured me that I had gone through and that my question wasn't uncommon.

LIFE IS time travel.

Once the threads of fate become entangled,
they can never be undone.
So as we create our destiny, from our own angle,
we stretch and pull this web, as one.

Actually is some since it is.  Part of the twins paradox is that no information can reach the twin traveling at the speed of light.  He is essentially a singularity with an event horizon preventing observation and information reaching him.  In that small since sleep is like that.

Yup. Can't fault that one. And I would even go as far as to also say, I doubt anyone would be able to debunk that!

Nicely done!!

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.
