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.


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.

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.)

I pity your eyes vbflame


Einstein pretty much hit it on the head with time being relative. And not just empirical evidence of it, human perception of it as well. I feel it's passing faster as well, i just put it down to being older. By the time i'm 70 odd years old i'll probably be at vbflame's stage overspannen
A blink and a year goes by, with your mind circling in familiar patterns, not giving a thought to "bigger" thoughts.

It IS going faster! I've taken tests! I played a 2 minute song and 3 minutes went by!
I've also winessed the sun moving quite fast. This has started since the 2010 summer... that's when I noticed actually.


EDIT: Holy crud I already said this!

I do feel like time is moving by faster, but I think that is just because I have just been grinding lately (for all of you gamers out there) and I haven't been paying attention to much, so it all gets into an indistinguishable blur in which days and weeks go by at the same speed.

Feel the same way, but now since I will be going back to Lucid Dreaming again I think it will change, if it does not, then I must say that it is weird... meh
