Firstly, i dont make many threads, so mods i hope ive posted this in the right forum
Ive got to get this out , just to see if anyone else is experiencing the same as me. This has been a "situation" that has pestered me for the last few years.
LIiterally, it feels as thought time is speeding up at an incredible pace in my world. I know that some say that the older you get the faster time seems to be going by. But i cant believe it goes this fast.
Im seeing a friend this week who i havent seen for six weeks, and it feels like a week, last Sunday feels like a day or two ago, my life is flying past me.
Its really bizarre and i hope i dont sound like im nuts. Has it affected anyone else? Perhaps its just my imagination, but it feels real.

Time has absolutely sped up. Even my teen children complain incessantly about how fast the days are going!

I don't care how nutter it sounds, the days are SHORT

i don't think time is literally affected - if time was changing i dont think we would be aware of it.
But i have to say that for the past year my perception of time has been way off. Used to be pretty good at it, but the past year i would say to a friend "remember last week when we were doing such and such" and she would say "oh, you mean two months ago?" and look at me like i was crazy! So I have been feeling it too. Really bad. But I also have fibromyalgia, and fibro fog, so I chalk my experiences up to that. But it is a weird feeling!

I've had the same feeling, no sense of missing time - just that it is going by faster than normal.

Like you, I chalked it up to getting older.

I have been thinking the same exact thing and asking myself the same question. It does seem that time is speeding up exponentially and I often wonder if it has anything to do with the things that we are told may happeh with a conscience awakening in 2012.

It may actually just be the old adage that time flies by as you get older, but I still can't help wondering.

I think many are experiencing similar perceptions - I know I am.

I've actually studied a number of different time theories, some are fascinating. One of them is that time flows along a torus-like geometry (think donut) - and that our current era is where time spirals down into the center of the "donut hole" - and that just like the tip of a tornado the quality of time is changing. Timewave theory is also fascinating.

Hang in there - were all on the same ride - glad to be sharing it with y'all.

time is relative to your experinces


positive experinces make time go faster...


negative experinces make it go slower...

Have you been really busy? I've noticed that the busier I am and especially the more stressed I am, the faster time seems to go. It just passes me by. There are things that happened a year ago that seem like they happened only a couple of months ago. I also notice that when I don't have something planned ahead to look forward to, time flies by in no time at all. Back when I used to get out more and have plans that I just couldn't wait for, time dragged on and on. I know this is why time flies for me. Probably doesn't explain why someone with a life experiences the same thing though, lol!
I just need to get more, haha!

Time has no relevance.. Time is completely irrelevant..

Time is perception.
Every year you are alive will feel shorter than the last one.

Haha, thankyou for your words of assurance, the latter option being the less weird one.

The rate of time passing is somewhat hard to quantify.

Do you measure it in seconds per second?

Remember, "Time's fun when you're having flies!", or something.

Summer months? to me they were a couple of weeks, maybe its got something to do with us only having two weeks of summer sunshine in the uk.
If feels like about two weeks ago that my daughter broke up from school, or maybe thats just her driving me crazy with her boredom and her need to go back to school.

I think we all experience this the older we get. Perhaps it's either something we accept, or the perception starts to slow down again at some point further in our lives.
I remember my mother, me now being the same age as she was then, complain of such a thing. Now neither my parents vocalise that perception.

Yes Chrissie, its ODD, its a weird feeling, to be honest ive been too embarressed by it to post earlier, because its sounds nuts.

I haven't had time to blink since my son was born. The last 20 months have flown by from my perspective!

Do you lead a busy life? This can make time seem to speed up. No time to get bored! Time does seem to go quicker as I get older though?

Time actually doesn't exist. Time is a mental construct of man to try and make sense in a confusing and random world.

To distort what we think of as time is very easy with the proper concoction of plants or chemicals.
