When we're young everything we see hear taste touch and smell is new and inviting...

As we age everything we see hear taste touch and smell becomes old and boring...

Most likely thats why time and life seems to pass by faster and faster as we grow older and older...

After we've seen and done most everything we see and do over and over again and again...

Everything changes nothing lasts forever...

Yesterdays gone tomorrow never knows...

All that really matters is here and now...

This reality is a temporary illusion...

When you're 3 years old another year will be adding a quarter to your life so it of course feels a lot longer than another year in your 40s.

I hear what your saying and i know what you mean but life can and does end at any age for anyone from 1 to 100 so we dont know how short or long it might be while we're living it and so we have no other time to compare it to and measure it by...

I mean like seriously think about how true this is....

A clear example of what I think and how I feel about the seemingly faster and faster passage of time....

Walk or drive down any street for the first time...

Everything you see hear taste touch and smell there will be new and inviting...

And time will seem to passing by slower slowly...

But walking or driving down that same street for the hundredth the thousandth time...

And everything you see hear taste touch and smell there will have been seen and heard and tasted and touched and smelled there before over and over again and again and again...

And time will seem to be passing by faster...

Just like life upon a larger scale in very many similar ways...

Time marches on...

Time waits for no one...

A watched pot never boils...

The old want to be young...

The young want to be old...

"The apparent separation between past present and future is an illusion"-Albert Einstein

Like wow wtf try and comprehend what that actually means...

You and i and life death time and reality are illusions...

According to Einstein, the past present and future exist simultaneously. Einstein believed there is no true division between past and future, there is rather a single existence.

He proved that time is relative, not absolute as Newton claimed. It's interesting the majority of physicists have been slow to give up the ordinary assumptions we make about time.

If we understand that or not is irrelevant, the illusion persists.

Duuuude...it's like a bunch of people got new bongs and medicinal green cards all at the same time. like maaan...our whole world and existence could just be a piece of dirt under a giant lizard's nail maaan. Whoaaaaa duuude...I've just blown my mind maaan.

I've found over the years that the more our responsibilities grow...the faster time goes by too. Crappy classes at school, class assignment deadlines, alarm clocks for work, deadlines for work, bill due dates, getting the kids to practices and/or games, getting meals cooked by certain times, taking care of my 86 yr old mother that still wants to stay in her home yet can't quite do the things we take for granted, rush here, rush there. But...circle a date on a calender like maybe for vacation AND that seems to take forever to get here...whether I was young or old. Funny now though that I don't feel quite so rushed anymore with the kids grown, automatic bill pay, no real time period when we have to have food on the table, my mother moving in with us before the end of the year. There is however...that slightly piercing pain in my butt though that rushes up on me when I'm sound a lseep...the alarm clock for work and some of the deadlines for our spring and fall sports seasons. Other than that...I tend to not feel like things are rushing by as fast as they used to be. More time to stop and smell the roses...I guess? dunno.gif

I suppose in reality i'll never be more happy and carefree than when i was just a little kid riding around on my bike all day and exploring out in the woods and the closest i've ever been to that happiness was playing with my two daughters and being with them as often as possible when they were young (*-*)

My experience is the opposite. When life is interesting, time flies, when it's tedious time slows to a crawl.

this is a kinda nice read,,,for those interested in such things,,,

Einstein wrote, "... for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one."

"Gravity slows time, so that it runs a little bit slower in the basement of your house than it does on the roof," says Davies. "It's a tiny effect, but it can be measured, even on distances that are that small. But if you want a seriously big time warp from gravity, you have to go where there's a very big gravitational field. If you had a clock on the surface of a neutron star, for example, it would tick at about 70% of the rate of a clock on Earth. The ultimate time warp is at the surface of a black hole, where in a sense time stands still relative to our time. If you went there, you wouldn't notice anything peculiar about time, but if you compared clocks between the two locations, they'd be enormously out of step."

Thinking of past and future brings us to another problem that has foxed scientists and philosophers: why time should have a direction at all. In every day life it's pretty apparent that it does. If you look at a movie that's being played backwards, you know it immediately because most things have a distinct time direction attached to them: an arrow of time. For example, eggs can easily turn into omlettes but not the other way around, and milk and coffee mix in your cup but never separate out again.

"So the problem is how to account for the asymmetry of time in daily life when the laws that govern all the atoms that make up everything around us are symmetric in time," says Davies. Much has been made of this problem, which affects Einstein's physics just as it did Newton's classical description of the world.

So the apparent asymmetry of time is really just an asymmetry of chance. Systems of many components — like a cup full of milk and coffee particles or a bowl full of egg particles — evolve from order to disorder not because the reverse is impossible, but because it's highly unlikely.

"If you try to write down a quantum mechanical description of the whole Universe, you find that the time parameter actually drops out [of the equations], it's not there at all," says Davies. Time is replaced by correlations. "For example, you might have a correlation between the size of the Universe and the value of some [physical] field. We would describe this by saying 'as the Universe evolves over time and gets bigger, so this field changes in value'. We use that language, but actually all you're talking about is a correlation [between physical quantities] and time can be removed completely."

Some people have interpreted this to say that time doesn't exist at all, but Davies disagrees.

anyway,,,that is enough,,,50 percent rule and all that..

Whenever we fall asleep time vanishes into meaningless nothingness and a thousand years could pass by instantly so in reality what does time really mean? and so death and eternity are timelessness and we die every time we fall asleep ...

Supposedly entropy proves the reality of the linear passage of time from the present into the future...

Entropy - "A process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder"

"The degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity"

In other words in my own words everything within this universe is in a constant state of evermore chaos and continuously breaking down into eventual nothingness...

So time must be entropic as well?

But what would time really be and what would time actually mean if we eliminated all of our clocks and watches and calendars and stopped living enslaved by them?

Is time really anything more than our human way of trying to structure and give order to the changing seasons and the days and nights of the rising and setting sun and moon?
