When I was a kid a day seemed to last forever. Like multiple days now but then it was one. The hours seem to pass like minutes now. I don't have enough time to finsh all my plans before it gets really late and I get tired. Can I do something against that?

"Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time-past and future-the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is." -Eckhart Tolle

Time changes not,
but all things change in time.
For time is the force
that holds events separate,
each in its own proper place.
Time is not in motion,
but ye move through time 
as your consciousness
moves from one event to another. Aye, by time yet exist, all in all,
an eternal ONE existence.
Know ye that even though in the time ye are separate,
yet still are ONE, in all times existent.

Yeah but everyone know America is still a baby, England is about 1100 years ol France is about 1300 years old China if consider the various dynasties one countinous existence is about 2400 years old and if amplified that logic and then applied it to Egypt well then it would be sitting pretty at about 6000 years old, America is about 300 years by the way, at that point in time the rulers of Egypt had changed ethnicity 4 times, India had go through 3 golden ages, England, France and Spain had fought 9 wars just between the 3 of them and China was in was in its 7th going on 8th dynasty, oh and Russia one of Europes youngest nation that didn't develop out of a recognisable predecessor is about 600 years old when American wins its independence, America is only have the age Russia was when America was born.

I've first thought of this when watching movies, it takes 15,000 man hours to make a full length film and there are upon millions who would watch 15,000 hours into 2 hours. The same with MNdown videos. A mere exponent to be entertained. A short short appreciation to the people behind it

I felt like this was an unnecessarily overblown explanation of the adages "time flies when you're having fun" and "a watched pot never boils." Some of the explanations are uniquely experiential, egotistical and not universal.

You really hit the nail on the head with the way the media used influences the perception of time. I’m a really big history buff, and I love learning about, WWII but seeing old photographs and footage from the war in black and white makes it seem so foreign and unreal to me, like it’s all fiction and it never really happens. As a side-note, for anyone else who feels this way, I’d recommend searching online for pictures from WWII taken in Kodachrome. It was a rare camera film that captured high-quality color images, and looking at pictures taken with it looks like stills from 1980s war movies rather than the real thing

Lol I use to think about this when I was a kid, along with how if Heaven is real and if you go there, then how long is eternity? which then I thought "well what if nothing happens when I die?" making it my first existential crisis around age 8... I just laid on the couch after trying to stay comfortable asking for my mom to sit with me.
