THE COMPLEXITIES OF TIME...
The perception of time has always perplexed me. Let me
give you an example. Under normal circumstances, one would
assume that a period of 20 years to a 60 year old, in retrospect,
should seem, proportionately speaking, the same length of time as 4
years does to a 12 year old; in both cases it's a 3rd of their respective
lives. However, we all know that time seems to pass more quickly the
older one gets, so 20 years to a person in their 60s probably only seems
like 10 at the most, which is a 6th of their life. But one 6th of a 12 year
old's life is 2 years, so wouldn't that seem to him what 20 years feels
like to a 60 year old? That must mean 'though, that 2 years and 4
years appear to be pretty much the same to a 12 year old. Or
does it? See what I mean? It's confusing, isn't it?
However, regardless of whether I can get to grips with under-
standing what I just said or not, one thing I do know. Even if I'm
lucky enough to live for another 50 years or so, it's going to fly by
far more quickly than I'd like it to. It'll have passed before I
even know it's begun. It doesn't seem fair somehow.
Now, can someone please explain what I'm on about?
