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?
