Dear MEL Topic Readers,

A theory that can help explain why time seems to move slowly

An hour is the same length of time for everyone and everything on the planet. However, an hour from now maybe felt differently by person. If a retired man is taking a nap, that’ll be very quick as he won’t feel any until he opens his eyes. However, if a busy working woman has to wait for a delayed flight, the same hour could be felt like hours. Indeed, as people feel and live by their inner subjective experience, an hour is never felt in the same way, according to a French philosopher. For example, you may remember a bad time so vividly like when you made an embarrassing mishap even though it was just a few moments and no one else cared about it. So, that moment is subjectively felt much longer than the objective time and the subject time of others around you. And that short moment could stay in your mind forever.

Well, if you are doing what you like, the time is short and life may be more enjoyable.

Enjoy reading the article and find how long you’ve felt when you finish reading it.
