A couple years back, I participated in a thread that discussed much the same. I can't find who, but someone offered a rather profound insight.
They said that Time is what we perceive as the interval between events.
It makes stunning sense in my mind. 20 years ago in my house, we had a single TV, a single radio, and that was it. I went to school, came home, did my
homework, and read/ played outside in the off time. Now, as I was doing homework earlier (in school for a later in life Masters), I had CNN on in the
background, Youtube playing in the background, and a FB IM conversation going.
(The homework didn't require actual cognitive thought, ok?).
Point being, between the computer, TV, Phone, etc, I am constantly bombarded 24x7 by stuff. Does time pass quicker now simply because of the
ratios discussed earlier in the thread? Or because we have little choice but to be constantly connected? Interesting to think about.
