if time is speeding up, then it is happening for everyone at the same time. this includes grandparents and children and cesium clocks. it is my personal belief that a portion of human consciousness resides "beyond" or "above" time. therefore, conscious perception is one of the only valid methods of measuring an increase in the time constant. the following excerpt describes another possible method...
check out the rest of it at the website. there is no doubt to *my* conscious perception that time is, in fact, speeding up.

The Hopi (I think it was Hopi) indians of America have prophecies that speak of the 'quickening'. This will be one of the signs that we are reaching end times. Time will appear to speed by us, to the point where even the children will notice it. This idea also appears to parallel the Mayan calander, in that some momentous event will occur at the end of 2012.
Opinions vary as to what will happen, many forsee the end of the world, others claim that there will be a lot of death, and natural disasters, the human race will be decimated but a new era will dawn with more enlightened humans enacting an age of peace and reason.
A quick google search will yield plenty of pages about this topic.
Personally, I think there has to be something to it. My own perception has been that 'time' has gotten quicker. This is due to a varity of things already mentioned in this thread (age, technology etc.), but that does not discount the prophecies at all.
The cause is not the concern for me, rather the fact that it seems to indicate that there may be some weight added to the prophecies. A lot of predictions from all over the world seem to be coming together, pointing to a single event that will change the world.

it also feels like time is moving wayyy faster than it used to. A day and a week flies by in the blink of an eye. Time is just moving so rapidly and everyone I've discussed this with pretty much agrees. Rasputin13
