Time can slow down to a crawl at times or it can speed up and appear to disappear in the blink of an eye. Time seems to speed up as we get older and it gets even faster when we are enjoying ourselves.
But although time moves faster when we are engaged and having fun, this ‘type’ of time also lasts much longer. When we are engaged with a novel stimulus, our brain lays down and creates more memories and more neural connections. When something incredible happens, it leaves a deep imprint on our brains that won’t be subject to fading over time.
