Time is relative
Posted on Saturday, November 12 2016 - 19:15:48

The minutes are long but the years are short…

Our perception of time is not always the same as the time measured by a stopwatch…

Over the years, years and days seem to elapse faster and faster…

Why? Tell me Why?

My feeling is that our brain estimates the duration of things relatively to what it has already lived:

  • For a 2 year old child, 1 year is extremely long, it is half of his life.
  • For a 10 year old, 1 year represents 10% of his life, which is enormous.
  • For a 20 year old, 1 year represents 5% of his life ...
  • For an adult of 50 years, it is only 2% ...

What is your feeling about it?

it only aims to make a list of ideas and cross-ideas associations, sometimes crazy, sometimes absurd, which one day came to my mind.
it’s ultimate goal is to make your imagination work, you the reader, and make you think about your own interpretations and conclusions, ... and why not to share them too.
