Why does time move more quickly as we age?
• March 2019
If you've ever noticed that time seems to move more quickly the older you are, you've caught a glimpse of one of the effects of what Adrian Bejan calls the "Constructal Law." Bejan is noted for having described the law, one which he believes to be a "first principle" of physics and describes how systems of energy persist throughout time. Bejan has identified data which suggests that time perception depends on the way our eyes and brain send and perceive images — at first very quickly, and then more slowly as we age, giving the impression that time itself moves more rapidly when we get older.
