# Has anyone noticed time moving faster

I feel the exact same way in my spanish class too…

If time were speeding up, so would you and your thoughts. There wouldn’t be any way to tell, because it would all feel the same to us. Also, I agree that it’s probably just getting older that makes time seem like it’s going faster.

Also, tesseracts are awesome. There’s a video on imagining up to 10 dimensions (here) that is also really nifty. I figure some of you in here may be interested.

I guess I agree with you, Kava. Time never hangs heavy in the air for me. Not even in Spanish class. I mean, for an instant I’ll feel as if the week is moving along slowly but the next thing I know two weeks have gone by since that original instant.

Time is just the speed of which the Earth revolves around the sun. Therefore if time were going faster than the Earth. It would have to be moving around the sun faster than it was before. The older you get the faster your perception of time goes by.

Lately for me time is slow whenever i think about it at the time.

But if its looking back time always seems to be going really fast.
Eeek

PS First Post

I’ve invented once with my friend a system to measure boredom based on the perception of time. It’s very simple:

Boredom = (time perceived)/(real time)

For example, if you feel like 2 hours have passed since some point in time, then you look at the clock and see, that it is only 1 hour, then the boredom is 2/1 = 2

What do you think of that?

EDIT:

Yeah, I agree I had a tesseract as my avatar for some time, but now it’s gone for some reason. Also, if you want to get the feel of the 4 dimensional space, you can try my 4D Labyrinth. I made it once, when I wanted to make something 4-dimensional, and I managed to write this. There is a description on my site, but it’s incomplete at the moment, though I’m currently working on it. I guess if you download it, you only have the readme file to help you understand, what’s going on. (There are 2 readme files, one is in Polish - if you aren’t Polish, you can safely ignore it the English one is the “readme_en.txt”).

there is some science going into that actually…A German physist W.O. Schumman has a theory on that; I haven’t looked deeper than this yet, but someone sent me this info and I looking of this made me think of it. Its in spanish, but I’ll get in a translation as soon as I can
“No solo las personas más viejas. También las jóvenes tienen la sensación de que todo se está acelerando excesivamente. Ayer fue carnaval, dentro de poco Semana Santa y más tarde navidad. Ese sentimiento ¿es ilusorio o tiene base real?
Por la resonancia Schumann se procura dar una explicación. El físico alemán W.O. Schumann constató en 1952 que la tierra está cercada por un campo electromagnético poderoso que se forma en la parte inferior de la ionosfera, cerca de 100 km por encima de nosotros. Ese campo posee una resonancia (llamada resonancia Schumann), más o menos constante de unas 7,83 pulsaciones por segundo.
Es como una especie de marcapasos, responsable del equilibrio de la biosfera, hábitat y condicionante común de todas las formas de vida. Se ha verificado que todos los vertebrados y nuestro cerebro tienen la misma frecuencia de 7,83 hertz.
Empíricamente se tiene la constatación de que no podemos estar sanos fuera de esa frecuencia biológica natural. Siempre que los astronautas hacían viajes espaciales se salían de la resonancia Schumann y enfermaban. Si se les sometía a la acción de un simulador Schumann, recuperaban el equilibrio y la salud. Desde hace millares de años los latidos del corazón de la tierra han tenido esa frecuencia de pulsaciones y la vida se desarrollaba en relativo equilibrio ecológico. Ocurre que a partir de los años 80, y de forma mas acentuada a partir de los 90, la frecuencia pasó de 7,83 a 11 y 13 hertz.
El corazón de la tierra se disparó. Coincidentemente, desequilibrios ecológicos se hicieron sentir: perturbaciones climáticas, actividad volcánica creciente, mayores tensiones en los conflictos del mundo, aumento general de comportamientos desviados en las personas, etc. Debido a la aceleración general, una jornada de 24 horas, en verdad es solamente de 16 horas. Por tanto, la percepción de que todo está pasando demasiado rápido no es ilusoria. Tendría base real en ese transtorno de la resonancia Schumann.
Se puede enfatizar una tesis recurrente entre los grandes cosmólogos y biólogos de que la tierra es, efectivamente un superorganismo vivo. De que la Tierra y la humanidad formamos una única entidad. Los seres humanos, somos Tierra que siente, piensa, ama y venera. Porque somos eso, poseemos una misma natureza bioelétrica y estamos envueltos por las mismas ondas resonantes Schumann.
Gaia, ese superorganismo vivo que es la Madre Tierra, deberá estar buscando formas de retornar a su equilibrio natural… Como cualquier ser vivo, pero no se sabe a qué precio habrá que pagarlo por la biosfera y por los seres vivos. Aquí se abre un espacio para los grupos esotéricos y otros futuristas que proyectarán escenarios, ora dramáticos con catástrofes terribles, ora esperanzadores, como la irrupción de la cuarta dimensión, por la cual todos seremos más intuitivos, más espirituales y más sintonizados con el biorritmo de la Tierra.”
-Leonardo Boff

I hope some of you can understand it, at least!

Q: Did you notice time is moving faster?
A: pasQuale just optimised the databases, that’s why you get the impression. Now, seriously, you need to get out more.

Interesting. I don’t like many pseudo-scientific affirmations this article makes, Yanielle, establishing links of causality which are not necessarily right (for instance calling the SR an “Earth’s pacemaker”. It’s also based on a very weird premise — according to which the frequency has shifted whooping 3 Hz in a matter of ten years or so. From what I know, this isn’t possible even in case the frequency is extremely sensitive to global changes (plenty of which we’ve provided in those past few decades)… and in fact it’s not supposed to be that sensitive. (I’d like to emphasize this: 3~5 Hz is a lot in this context).

His conclusions are based merely on hypotheses which are nowhere near grounded. But! it is possible that, rather than “changing its frequency”, the resonance has changed its timbre, that is, that one of the modes in its spectrum has gained more volume over time. It is possible that this happened in resonance to changes from down here. In that sense, it’s not like we have a pacemaker and its broken, but rather like we have a big thermometer and it’s suddenly indicating fever.

That is to say: something might be causing this kind of massive phenomenon to act weird, and that something, cæteris paribus, must of course be us. So perhaps we’re causing something to the world which makes that resonance act weird. Perhaps that same something is what’s causing us to think time is moving faster. At any rate, I dare anyone to spend a month in Bahia and still claim time moves anywhere near fast. Oh, how I miss that place!..

When I first recieved this I looked it up for more information (in english)-got something very different which left me pretty confused. (language shouldn’t change the info at all…) I meant to get back to it but never did. Honestly hadn’t thought much more of it until I saw this topic on the forum…

So what you’re saying is that this is just made to look scientific but there isn’t enough real proof to make it “fact”; the pseudo science part. we’re damaging the world we live in to a point beyond repair, and thats not really a question. But there isn’t much root in what he says… At the same time, there probably is something that the people are doing that is messing up the resonance and it may be making us think that time is moving faster…

Bahia, huh? Thats a region of Brazil… Think I’ve heard of it at some point. What’s it like?
Brazil is actually on my “go before I die list” hope I can make it sometime soon!

Yes, I’m basically criticising two things: first, reports on that frequency shift are nowhere else to be seen, which makes me doubt the frequency shifted at all — which is not to say nothing happened, that being why I put forward the possibility that rather than the frequency having changed (which would have been quite an alien phenomenon), the composition of its spectrum ( = its timbre) changed.

The second thing I questioned is the causality: whatever co-relation you point out between “world resonance” and “time moving faster” has to be pondered and grounded, and the one that article suggested was neither. It threw some factoids together to make it somewhat credible that a natural electromagnetic phenomenon has influence in our perception of time. I said that it was way more likely that there was something (say, modern life — with all its messing with the environment and whatnot) causing both, our altered perception of time and the changes in the ionosphere.

You know the coconut-beach paradise stereotype people have about Brazil? Well. Not all of Brazil is like that, I’m afraid. But! Bahia — Bahia is that stereotype. And much more. It’s the land where time stops and all is bliss.

“Brazil is on my list” sounds funny. I’m tempted to ask back: which one? It’s a bit like saying “Europe is in my list” or “the United States are in my list” — there are just so many!..

No, time is completely different than speed. It takes the Earth a year to revolve around the sun though and that is a measurement of time.

S=d/t

you could however find the time it takes the earth to go around the sun by substituting the speed for S and distance for D. I think that is what you were talking about…but that would just be a unit of measurement for time.

Time IS moving faster, it’s if we’re gonna crash into 2012!
I have evidence too. I played a 2-minute song(metroid prime prolouge, which is 1:48 )
anyways, I timed the song to the internet clock when BAM! Just after the song finshed, 3-minutes went by. I have no idea what to think. I double checked everything!

well yeah if you start playing a 2 minute song on the moment a clock goes to ‘.10’ then at the end of the song it will jump to ‘.12’ which is the third minute… no surprise there.

No but seriously guys, if time would move faster/slower, which could be possible due to the earth starting to move in a different pattern, and more likely our solar system, galaxy or even cluster starting to move differently, the it would move faster/slower everywhere on earth, so we wouldn’t be able to tell, it wouldn’t make any difference. If time moves faster/slower for you it also moves faster/slower for your clock.

I believe this is more on perception of time, which is irrelevant. I don’t think time would change too much, too fast. Geologically, 10 years is a second, a moment, not long enough to think a thought. If it was going faster, it would be too small to tell, a minuscule fraction of a second every so often.

you are right, the week and years seem to go by wayyy faster than normal. hell a normal day to me seems like 5 minutes…

I thought that’s what Einstein’s theory of relativity was all about. Time and speed is connected. I like how the thread starter kinda described it. It much reminds me of the things that use to be in malls, no idea what they’re called. You’d put your penny in the ramp and let it go. It rolled around in that huge funnel like thing and as it got closer to the hole it just went faster and faster until it inevitably fell into the hole.

I think the time seemingly going faster has simply something to do with people aging and the perception of the grand scale of time changing. (eg. Crafting a chair seems to take the same amount of time but the overall years just zip by faster and faster.)
