When we are young we move faster and time passes slowly. As we age, we slow down and time speeds up.

This is in accord with the Theory of Special Relativity discovered by Einstein.

  1. Your post is interesting because it stands logical and it also stands in contrast to the popular saying that time is slow for those who wait. It seems that the old and aged are more comfortable with waiting.


    1. Thanks for your comment, Gbalobo,

      I’m trying to emulate Paul Merton here, an English comedian who likes to make false conclusions for laughs. Einstein’s theories having nothing to do with how we perceive time as individuals. Your waiting example reminds me of a saying here “A watched kettle never boils.” I do find that when I make a cup of tea, the kettle does boil the water quicker than when I was young, though I think that may have something to do with better technology.
