          I always thought that made sense and was the obvious answer. But I guess it's just one hypothesis because I read some article that there might be other factors. One was it has to do with memory and new experiences. I'm sure I won't be able to find it, but I think it was similar to what they talk about in this one
          >the passage of time we perceive is related to the amount of new perceptual information we absorb. With lots of new stimuli our brains take longer to process the information so that the period of time feels longer

            Time is non-linear and it is only our memories which occurs in a sequence. Since what we are consciously aware of is roughly 20 seconds after what we decided to do and see in the future fundamentally we are always living in the past. So someone who is doing new stuff all the time or getting off their asses will experience less time speed up and remember things more clearly.

            On the other hand, the guy saying 'you are getting older" couldn't even be bothered to get an old analog watch and count the seconds in his head while looking away from the watch and digital clocks to check.

            If things flow easily/smoothly so does time if things are held through friction such as forcing yourself or being forced to do nothing time drags on but this only effects exsperience not memory
            So if you spend a month doing nothing the month will feel long but you won’t remember anything of it so it will feel like it was never really there people waste years of there life doing this like holy frick I’m 30 now ect where did it all go
            But if you enrich your life even if it flows smoothly and quickly you’ll have a grand memory of it and the time will feel fulfilled and you won’t think man time is moving so quickly where did it all go

          This is just a thing with getting older, my school years felt like a long slow grind at times. I'm 31 now, years go by lot more quickly than they did for me in the late 90s and 00s. The summer of 2007 felt like a long nice break even a lazy Sunday of browsing the web in the 00s felt pretty slow, in the current year my perspective of time is lot faster and anytime spent online goes even quicker than that.

          For me it was 2014 is when I noticed months don't feel as long as they use to but it's also when I started working full time so that might be apart of it, mundane work and age.

            that's because when you're that young, you latched on to many trivial things. when you do this, one year lasts forever

            when you get older, in your 30's, you lose touch with youth society, so your knowledge of new, hip things are limited. you feel the youth would cringe, laugh and point if you tried to emulate them, so what's the point?

            so, you begin hanging out with your old chums talking about "how good it used to be back in 2009" and "i want to go back" and all that shit. congrats. you became your dad. look at your hand. it's holding a Monster Energy Drank.

      This, but really. Our concept of time speeds up apparently as we age. Brain degeneration, yeah, but mostly it’s novelty: when you’re young everything is an experience that grabs your attention. Getting older, you notice less ie you operate more in autopilot, tuning out the moment, which makes time feel like it’s sliding by.
      Remedy? Mindfulness. Make it a practice to bring yourself into the present moment often. Notice what’s happening. Try to find reasons to smile and feel thankful for what is.

    It's all culminating into a major event to take place in ~2025.

    Es solo nuestra percepción del tiempo. Mientras envejecemos los años se nos hacen más cortos porque representan cada vez menos porcentaje de nuestro tiempo vivido.
    Por ejemplo, cuando tenías 4 años 1 año significaba el 25% de tu vida y cuando tenías 16 años significaba el 6,25% de tu vida.
    Mientras más envejeces más baja el porcentaje.

      This and I can prove it (at least to people with a similar counting method). Did you have a phrase to say when counting time as a kid? For me it was either "one-one-thou-sand" or "one miss-iss-ip-pi."
      I remember looking at the second hand of a clock and having to say those 4/5 syllables fairly slowly to fit with one second.
      Try it yourself now. I can only get two syllables out before the second changes. Time has sped up by roughly double.
      To all the "you're just older" Black folk, how were my parents able to say 4/5 syllables in a second in my youth and I, at around their age, can barely get out two syllables in the same time?

          I have no real explanation for it.
          Maybe the "official" second has been sped up? But then days wouldn't fit 24h.
          Maybe the Earth's orbit has changed?
          Maybe collective will/thought makes reality, and so time itself has sped up as people have started thinking quicker by busy work schedules, the increasing pace of digital life, watching everything on 2x speed?

            Time is ruled by Saturn which controls work ethic and dedication to achieving one's goals. Humans used to wake up every day and accomplish great fears using nature as a tool instead of constantly opposing it. The more the collective comes out of nature everyone retreats inward because it's too hard and nature always wins. When we had track of time it moved slower because we were masters. Now we've lost control and its manifested as something thats always moving from our grasp.

    I have an extremely detailed autobiographical memory, but it all cuts out after I turned 12 or so. I remember less and less. If I were to list the things I remember from the ages of 2-10 I could fill an entire book, but if I were asked to list what I remember from the age of 12-27 (my current age) I could maybe fill a few pages, maybe a chapter at most.

            You can't die, that's not a thing that happens. You just pass to a timeline close to your own, but where you're still alive.
            Again and again, until the next closest reality is you reincarnating.

    >Why is time so fast now?
    I'm something of a scientist myself, and I believe I have the answer. It's a fact that your perception of time slows down or speeds up depending on whether you're casually observing events or making decisions, respectively.

    For example, you've probably seen tens of thousands of images on EerieWeb, but if I were to ask you what season and year you saw a specific one, you likely wouldn't recall. Seeing a pic of a dog wearing a tie is a single event that doesn't prompt you to remember anything about the decisions that led up to it or the consequences. However, if I asked you what season and year you managed to sneak a glance at your crush in a swimsuit, you'd probably remember almost instantly. It was a deliberate decision, and one that you would make again and again in the following years with varying degrees of success. It's a decision that had consequences, too, which you soon learned as you found yourself getting caught for attempting to shoplift boltcutters. You fantasized about your crush's moderately-sized bulge under the fabric of his baggy-when-dry but translucent-when-wet swim trunks so many times that the memory has remained fresh in your mind, almost as fresh as the memory of your older sister saying, "Try that again, and it'll be once every other week," as she dangled the key to your new chastity cage in your face. Modern media also plays a role, since strange events happen quickly and dramatically without prompting one to reply to this post or your mother will die in her sleep tonight. So yeah. perception of time changes depending on the context of experiences.

      try waiting in a stimulation free environment for 5 mins with out counting or holding any sort of rythem then counting out 30 seconds accurately, you believe people can accurately temporary cognate the entirety of their lives in comparison to a moment, whats 5 mins and 30 seconds?
      and since you know so much about temporal cognition what duration separates long and short term memory?

      >mfw i was a kid, i practically begged my parents to buy me McDonald's burgers and fries
      >mfw i was a young adult, McDonald's was still cheap, but i never took advantage of it because I stopped craving it
      >mfw i am now an older adult and the price of a Big Mac is $10
      >mfw now as an older adult i still don't crave Big Macs but i'm sweating now because i don't even have a fricking choice to buy cheap fast food anymore

        Now I know how boomers felt when the same type of bread they paid 25 cents for as a kid ended up costing 5 dollars

    You're right but the whole thread is just going to be cowards posting their programmed reddit cope because the reality of time acceleration scares them.

    because you were probably a kid a decade ago.

    if you're wanting the actual answer to this it is this. Simply put, we remember firsts more vividly. When we are teenagers we are flooded with a world of firsts, as we age firsts are less autonomously from our environment and more instigated by us- simply because, we are now the adults.

    Our brains discard information that they see as unimportant in a decluttering process as we sleep. I woke up, repeated the same day again, nothing out of the ordinary happened to me, I slept. The brain sees a day like this and thinks there's nothing here worth my long term memory, so you hardly remember it. If you simply live life waiting for it to happen to you, rather than seizing what the opportunities you can create, then you will become like the vast majority of the elderly, who when questioned about the middle of their lives, talk of their 20s.

    TLDR: Create more firsts and time will feel longer by becoming more memorable.

      How do you explain the "one mississippi" effect then? (

      This and I can prove it (at least to people with a similar counting method). Did you have a phrase to say when counting time as a kid? For me it was either "one-one-thou-sand" or "one miss-iss-ip-pi."
      I remember looking at the second hand of a clock and having to say those 4/5 syllables fairly slowly to fit with one second.
      Try it yourself now. I can only get two syllables out before the second changes. Time has sped up by roughly double.
      To all the "you're just older" Black folk, how were my parents able to say 4/5 syllables in a second in my youth and I, at around their age, can barely get out two syllables in the same time?

      ) Counting isn't related to your memory.

    Because you got older, and time is measured in % by your brain.
    One year at 40 is half year at 20. That's why you can't have immortality.

    Time moves no faster now than it did 10 years ago.

    "1 year now is just 1/30th of your life, when you were a kid it was 1/6th of your life" is a shitty argument. Humans don't remember their entire life in perfect detail, you're going to forget the times you sat around doing nothing.

    You think life is going by faster because you're getting lazier and less social as you get older and don't do as much stuff or talk to as many people like you did as a kid, meaning there's more memory for your brain to forget because it's just of you sitting around doing nothing.
