    Same as love and time. They are the Holy Trinity.

    They are you and you are they.

    My point being, that the answer to the topic's question, is in my opinion closely tied to the answer to the question "What is infinity?".

    Yes, this is interesting.

    I think of the phenomena above as follows:
    As your life gets busier, time seems to be passing faster.
    So, as busy-ness increases, perception of time passing more quickly increases. For example:

    (1) As a kid you are not that busy (time is long, or seems to be passing slowly)

    (2) As an adult you are busy, once a parent super busy, and once a parent with older parents extremely super busy (time seems to be flying by at an ever increasing rate).

    (3) Once you are old, I am hoping time slows down again, for the final laps of the race, so you can enjoy a bit before giving up the ghost.

    Thoughts?

    They are made of essentially the same essence, which is to say infinity. Time, like space, is something that infinity makes up to entertain itself.

    one of the few things in life that is independent of perception

    is time the cause or is it the effect? does life go on because of time or does passing life gives the perception of time?

    best question i've ever heard in this section..

    Time is separation. That's it. No magic, no mystery, time is just separation of events in our universe. Time is a measurement of CHANGES, nothing more.


    and if you don't believe me, there's this guy Einstein that let us know time and space are LINKED because they are both physical separations of things, and those physical separations of things have an important relationship.

    if you want better evidence, consider this: just about EVERY physics equation that's worth a damn has time as a variable in the denominator. the only equations that have the variable time in the numerator is to balance an exponent of time in the denominator. Time is merely separation of REAL things - it has no reality itself.

    I always comprehended this as, when I was one day old, by the time the next day ended I lived half my life. When I am 50 years old, I will have to live to 100 to live half my life, and time is not making adjustments for my changing perceptions. If this makes any sense, Im confusing myself.
