Art and Other Things

Interesting art pieces from around the world

For the last couple of weeks, our Biology class has been presenting interesting current events happening around the world related to bio. One boy presented the idea of time delay. Most people felt that while jumping off a tall building, they felt as if time went slower. So scientists checked whether time actually did slow. The results were disappointing, and nothing was proved. Timedelay remained Рstill Рonly a theory.

This got me thinking about the strange concept of time. It’s always changing, but always constant. You know, when we’re young, all we want if for time to fly by, and be all grown up. But when we are grown up, all we want is for time to slow down. Time just goes by faster when we’re older! Why? Why does everything just pass by faster each year?

When I was talking about this with my mom, she said that it’s because when we’re young, we’re learning so much, so that the time seems to go by slower, but when we’re older, we’re not learning as much so time flies by. I don’t if I should agree with this or not. I don’t get why when we’re learning a lot, time goes by slower. Does that make sense to you? Is it just me?

What I think is that when we’re young, we don’t really have lots of responsibility or pressure on us. Kids don’t have much to do other than have fun! But they’re too young to realize that and not take advantage of it. So we have lots of time just laying around. Then we grow up, and are weighed down with all the things we have to do. Gradually, the weight grows, and we have less time for anything, because we’re too busy trying to make our weight lighter. We look back , and regret how we spent our younger years.

So that’s my theory on how time works as we grow. More things to do = Less time. Found a quote to match today’s post as well! What are your thoughts on how time works? :/ It’s a strange thing!

“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.”
