Why is time going by so fast now?

When I was young the summer seemed to last so long. Now 5 years seems to go by faster. And everybody knows about this phenomenon. Heard lots of explanations about this but none of it really makes sense.

I am starting to think time is going by faster, maybe 10 times faster then the early 80s. Probably has been going on for sometime since the elderly know about this, hard to say how long.

Because when you were 10 years old, one year was 10% of your entire lifespan up to that point.

When you're 50, one year is 2% of your lifespan. 2% feels shorter than 10%.

That’s good logic, I used to tell myself the same thing. But even though it makes the most sense it’s a piss poor explanation if you take a honest look at it.

Only thing that makes any sense is time has been going faster. Of course all the movements have sped up at the same speed but part of our brain can’t be tricked.

I vaguely remember reading some article about why we perceive time to go faster as we age it's something to do with how the neurons in the brain or something become worn over time and it effects how we perceive time. I can't really remember exactly what it said but it made sense when I read it.

I look at it this way. When you're young your life is an uphill struggle for the most part, then you peak around midlife for a few years and life plateaus out, then as old age sets in, it's all downhill.

If you accept that analogy, then you accept that it is harder and takes longer to go uphill than it does to go downhill.

Isaiah 60:20 I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time.”

Says right in the Bible that God is going to speed up time. Another coincidence?

Because as an adult you're busier, when I used to work in kitchens I'd be doing around 12-14 hours a day, you have hardly any time to do anything and before you knew it, it's Christmas again.

Maybe when you are a kid, you have no control over your life so you find a lot of things boring like school, so it drags.

When you are an adult you are able to seek enjoyment so it 'flies when you are having fun'.

Having said that, my life is pretty stagnant at the moment and it is still going quickly.

No doubt we will get an explanation from the resident Enstrikelopedia.

Pretty low to argue that time goes faster because God is acting like a right cunt. You really must hate religion.
