Yes. I have noticed this myself. Just the other day I remember thinking, "wow, it's the year 2000! I wonder what I will be like in ten years". It seems like just yesterday. I still feel like I'm 18 (now 28). When I was younger, a year seemed to take forever. Now a year feels like three months, tops.


Me too. I'm 16 now and i remember when i was 10 an hour felt like eternity. Now it feels like i could blink and it goes from morning to late afternoon. A few months goes by in the time that feels like a few weeks

Things happen faster in a larger world, now we find out about those things instantaneously, the occurrence of things that we notice is more frequent than our "short term memory" so we cognate more, which is the evolutionary aspect. But the absolute fact that over a billion people have access to worldwide events and the capability to share them with the rest is having an effect on us as a species.

You are dead on ganjoa! With things like texting, Twitter, facebook, etc. We now hear of things going on within SECONDS. I always say that if 9/11 happened now, there would not be that confusion factor. Youtube videos of the crash would be up within minutes, and be tenfold more than 2001.

The world is in fact getting 'smaller'.

As for things slowing down, i think the bottom line is that time is starting to become irrelevant, where so many things are happening at once
