Time is Actually Passing Faster

Our Solar System is Moving at The Speed of Light with the Expansion of the Universe

PRLog - Jun. 19, 2012 - With regard to our age, how do we discern time itself as a denoted measurement? What is time besides a measurement? We know one day has twenty-four hours, one hour as sixty minutes and one minute as sixty seconds. These are measurements denoted by man originally based on the earth revolving around the sun. The Egyptians were one of  the first cultures to divide days into equal parts, using devices like sundials, shadow clocks, and merkhets plumb lines utilized by astronomers of the time period.

Can time actually pass faster as we sometimes feel that it does? On the other hand, is it just because our lives are busier?
Time does seem to pass faster when we are busier rather than not. However, it does not explain why younger and older persons that are not busy with tasks or specific duties find that time is passing rather quickly. There are theories that this state of mind is psychological, whereby younger persons not as busy believe time is passing slower and older persons believe it is passing faster. Then there is a theory about our age as percentage in relation to our lifetime, causing us to feel time is passing faster as we grow older because the percentage of time we have left is less. Then the biological theory that the speeding of time is associated to metabolic changes in our body causing time to pass faster as we grow older. I do not believe it is our imagination, psychological, or metabolic changes in our body that makes time pass faster, it only aids in making us feel that it does.

0ne might view being busy with jobs or responsibilities and projects within or outside our workday is the reason time seems to pass faster. One reason might be, when we were children, time seemed much slower, because we had nothing specific to do then. We are now older, our day seems to be more prearranged and we do have specific tasks. When we are busy, it appears time seems to pass much faster. This can be true to a certain extent. However, I am retired and writing a book at home at my leisure. There are no, I have to do this, or I have to do that, nothing specific to do and yet time is roaring by very quickly. The years seem like months, the months like weeks and the weeks as if it is” Monday and then suddenly the weekend.”

I have done a significant amount of research with different age groups about how fast time is passing. I find that the better majority about ninety percent also feel time is moving very fast, much faster that it feels like it should. This consensus is in age groups from high school to late seventies.
Einstein's work abuntantly and amazingly showed that time is relative.  In 1907 his General Theory of Relativity showed that clocks run more quickly at higher altitudes because they experience a weaker gravitational force than clocks on the surface of the Earth.
The phenomenon - called gravitational time dilation  has been demonstrated by installing atomic clocks on jets and flying them at high altitudes.
Just as Einstein predicted, clocks flown at an altitude 30,000 feet run faster than those left behind on the earths surface.
Gravitational time dilation can be noticed in global positioning satellites which need to have their clocks regularly adjusted do to the time differential.
It also means that your upper torso ages more quickly than your lower, people living on the top floor of a tall building age more quickly than those on the first floor . Time passes more slowly for people living at sea level than it does for those at higher altitudes. However the the difference is extremely small, but is so.

The universe does expand at the speed of light in all directions, and, perhaps more unexpectedly, some of the galaxies we can see right now through the Hubble Telescope are currently moving away from us faster than the speed of light. This description is based on the Hubble telescope “constant” in relation the universe expanding. The Hubble obtains information to enable one to measure the expansion of the universe and its speed.
