How can "time" really speed up, if time is a man made creation used to measure one point of a day to another, unless man is speeding up the time.

Don't worry, you probably won't live that long if the powers that be get their way, did you guys realise that an 80% world population decrease is part of the United Nations Statement of Declaration.
WW3 is really just about population control, and then they will enslave the survivors, I love the Banksters!

I have thought about time speeding up. Given that physics says that time is defined as distance over speed, the time can only be measured by distance to the sun. However, nobody has ever been able to measure, or monitor, the distance to the sun.
He believes there is no such thing as dark energy. Instead, he says we have been fooled into thinking the expansion of the universe is accelerating because time itself is slowing down.
At our local everyday level, the change would be imperceptible.
But it would be obvious from cosmic scale measurements tracking the course of the universe over billions of years.
Astronomers work out the speed of the universe’s expansion from the frequency of light emitted by certain types of supernovae, or exploding stars.
However, these measurements depend on our current perception of time, says Prof Senovilla.
If time has been slowing down, and clocks are now running more slowly than they did long ago, it would appear from our perspective as if things have been speeding up. Looking back over billions of years, galaxies would seem to be travelling away from each other faster and faster at various intervals since the Big Bang.

have you ever heard of the "Schuman frequency"? It is appointed by some researchers as the reason why time seems to pass more quickly now, then when we were kids.
You can do some google search on that topic, or under the name "schuman resonance" also, but here is the main idea...
the Earth has, as far as scientists could tell a few years back, a constant frequency, or vibrating signal, just like if it was a "heartbeat". It was overall measured in 7.8 cycles per second. Several global military communication system used it as standard measure. But, somehow, it as recently increased up to 11 cycles.
Some people say, this is the reason we feel time passing each time more quickly. We weren't able to adapt ourselves from the 7.8 cycles per second frequency, to the 11 cycles frequency.
I don't have much more info on this, but I hope to have been of any use.
