Time goes into a small paper bag, which is then wadded up and thrown into the trash, without being recycled.

Only in retrospect does time seem to have flown by. In my readings on the subject of time perception, I believe because we have had a fairly repetitive daily existence, for the past ten years, does it seem to have flown by. That is due to so few new memories. Only the new memories highlight the ten years.

But, each day remains as long as all days. If you read more history, on a favorite subject, you might feel that your perception of time stretches back farther (before your birth)? Time is in the brain. I personally believe that those that perceive time more slowly, or longer, affect the body's entropy.
Good luck!

P.S.: And, since time is non-existent at the speed of light, if there are angles riding light rays, do they not experience time? Time is not absolute throughout the universe (or in multiverses). You might be moving slowly, or have very little mass/gravity in your locale?

As u get older,
each unit of time will be perceived to pass more swiftly.

Each unit of time (remaining stable) shrinks in the ratio
of all time that u have experienced, relative to that unit of time.

Happy Anniversary.
May your second 1O years be 2ice as happy as your first 1O years.

I have read that the percentage paradigm you reference is just a popular notion. It supposedly has to do with the lack of new experiences, as we get older, that allows for the swiftness of time in retrospect (only).

That is not the concept that I had in mind.
My thawt was that a person has a finite amount of time that he remembers.
As he gets older, the perceived size of any unit of time decreases
relative to the totality of (expanding) time that the observer has known.

Time seems to get faster as the fewer new experiences happen... When every day just seems to run into the previous there is no way to differentiate them.

Teenager? I wish.

@McGentrix,
Enter a windowless room alone,
with no electrical appliances.

Stay in there for a few hours
and see how long it feels
(if u remain awake)
without new experiences.

Let us know.

Yes. That's what I read. the author was in Germany, and wrote an interesting tome on the subject.

@OmSigDAVID,
They were interesting.

On a different theme, we measure time with clocks and calendars. We perceive it in terms of events.

@ehBeth,
I've missed seeing YOU too, ehBeth! After many many years, tonight I just made up my mind to see if I could login to A2K and could not believe I could do it! I was hoping to see some of my old abuzz friends and so far in 5 minutes I have counted 7 so far as still online here! Woot! I've been active on flickr with photos for 8 years and a huge activity on Google+. But now, I long for my oldest and bestest Crones and Sages these days...

@cobalt,
I guess you're one of those rare birds that doesn't change email address from month to month. As I said elsewhere, welcome back.
