No, it's called "You're getting old." Welcome! Every person experiences this feeling as he ages.

If you think back to when you were a child, time goes by much slower than as you get older. The explanation for this is our perception of time speeds up with age.
But is it possible that 'time' is actually speeding up?
If it was, each generation would not be able to differrentiate the difference in time that they experience compared to the next generation.
Because we only judge in years and minutes, the only explanation of time is hours and minutes. But what happens if hours and minutes are speeding up?
And is it possible to judge time if it is only being distorted in our region of space, or maybe its posssible it happens everywhere in the universe.
