Isn't this a conclusion everyone reaches at some point in their life?
It is intriguing though that when you think about it, the clock never ticks faster than it is supposed to - unless it is need of repair. No matter how quickly the minutes seem to turn into hours, or the days seem to transition into weeks, or even the months seem to transform into years; a second still is, has been and always will be the duration taken by radiation to travel between two levels of the ground state of the Caesium-133 atom.
Despite the constantly relentless (and sometimes monotonic) march of time - millisecond upon millisecond, the human brain somehow seems to perceive time to fly at varying speeds depending on our state of mind. When we are bored, time seems to fly like a powerless glider drifting over a windless desert, and when we are excited, time seems to fly like a supersonic jet fighter on a supercruise. Just imagine how life would be when our perceptions get switched around such that time glides when we are excited and blazes past when we are not, but I digress. The point remains that we always seem to perceive time flying - whatever the speed.
Its been 7 months since I last blogged, and in that time (you guessed it), time flew - at an insane, breathless pace. I've been through some ups, more downs, traveled places, met many people and learned an awful lot. Its almost funny now, when I look back at how naive I was back then. Even looking back a couple of months, its startling to see how much time can change a person. If there is one thing I realized in all this time was that time (while doing its unrelenting flying) also teaches - if you are willing to learn. Time teaches at a pace as rigorous as its flying.
Time flies, but also teaches! I guess the question we need to ask ourselves is, are we learning?
