Did you know that the passage of time seems to increase with the square root of age. The more we grow older, the more time seems to pass quickly.

Suppose that at twenty passing time is equal to ONE. At forty, twice your age, time goes faster and 1.4 times at forty years is still double the time seem to go TWO times faster ....

Who says you have no more time to rest ...

This property is known as timelessness

What is time tho? Is it just the earth spinning around the sun? Is it the way we measure the aging of our body's? Or is there a different time we dont know about, a cosmic tick so to speek

I completely agree with your perception (I am 64). But my preferred explanation is simply "logarithmic compression." When we were 5, the kindie year represented a 20% increase in our time on earth, and even greater fraction of the time of which we had fair conscious awareness. My 64th year (my current one) is only 1/64 = 1.7% increase in my lifetime stock of experiences. Assume that one's perception of elapsed time is a function of the rate of new sensations per unit of time. The conclusion is that the older we are, the more time flies. This is a sobering fact, given my age. It means that the remaining 15-20 years of my life, will go by fairly quickly.

yeah..i feel time runs so fast like a horse racing for the winner mark...<br />
Interesting post Jg!!

Yes... run as fast as the Pony

Oh the time flies....and as you say so much quicker the older we get!

Alas.... relativity...LOLz

It does seem to pass faster as we get older.

lol.... alas... time flows as quick as a jet... Grrrr
