I think time, as we know it, is definitely speeding up. Let me explain. There are still "24 hours" in a day, but time, as we understand it, is being shortened. The only thing that is picking up on it is our souls. We still watch the clock each day and it still ticks out the 24 hours that we're used to. But our souls are picking up on the fact that time is going faster and something is different. In turn, we wonder if we're losing our minds.
There is also evidence that points to this in the Scriptures. It states that in the last days, He, God, would shorten the days lest we destroy ourselves.
Look at the boom in the energy drink and supplement market. For centuries, coffee was the best stimulant available, but now we need mass injections of caffeine, sugar, and taurine to make it from sun up to sun down. You figure that your body is packing 12 hours of daytime activity into maybe 6 to 8? I wish there was a way to measure the time difference, but our souls don't run on time. I think they're only aware when things are different.
I don't think you're going mad; your soul just knows that something's not right.
Just a thought.
We have all had dizzy spells
The circumference of the Earth at the equator is 25,000 miles. The Earth rotates in about 24 hours. Therefore, if you were to hang above the surface of the Earth at the equator without moving, you would see 25,000 miles pass by in 24 hours, at a speed of 25000/24 or just over 1000 miles per hour.
Earth is also moving around the Sun at about 67,000 miles per hour
The Earth rotates once in a few minutes under a day (23 hours 56 minutes 04. 09053 seconds). This is called the sidereal period (which means the period relative to stars). The sidereal period is not exactly equal to a day because by the time the Earth has rotated once, it has also moved a little in its orbit around the Sun, so it has to keep rotating for about another 4 minutes before the Sun seems to be back in the same place in the sky that it was in exactly a day before.
The Earth is doing a lot more than rotating, although that is certainly the motion we notice most, because day follows night as a result. We also orbit the Sun once a year. The circumference of the Earth's orbit is about 940 million kilometers, so if you divide that by the hours in a year you will get our orbital speed in kilometers per hour. We are also moving with the Sun around the center of our galaxy and moving with our galaxy as it drifts through intergalactic space!
