I've noticed as I've grown older that time feels like its moving faster than when I was growing up. Is there any reason for this and what is it?Asked by Jared, Utah
...and why does a return journey seem to take less time than the outward leg?
Isn't this analogous to hand-cranked movie cameras...If the cameraman turned the crank too quickly when recording, "over-cranked", the film would be in slow motion when projected at the normal rate. Turning the crank too slowly, "under-cranking", would speed up motion when the film was projected at the normal rate.The internal clock slowing with age is analogous to "under-cranking" and causes the perception of time passing to speed up.[A digital version of this analogy would involve using different sampling rates, the sampling rate decreasing in frequency with age]
