My theory is that we started working, thus felt longer while only remembering all the fun things from before. We are keep repeating dealing n chasing after client & deadline - Thus we tend to find the time go by so fast.

Wow you and I were born on the same year (don't know the month), and I always thought you were way older than me, but if you think about it, Since I've only see you on pre-recorded videos chances are every time I've seen you, you were actually younger than me.

I imagine people did feel less like *the* main character in the past, when community was more important and people felt more connected to the earth and their ancestors. I want to adopt that kind of mindset--even if I do love "you're the main character in a coming of age film" playlists

talk about one of the rarest phenomenon that exists in the physical universe. There are Actually many records of it occurring, but compared to other phenomenon, are of the rarest, even rarer then bilocation.... time slips. Yes it is a real phenomenon, but is as mysterious to us as ball lighting was 100 years ago. there are 2 books that i have found that are recounts of such an experience during a time slip, one is called "An Adventure" or "The Adventure" by 2 scholars written 120 years ago give or take, another is one that was jus recently translated into English called "Chronicles from the Future" also originally written 100 years ago, the latter of which completely changed my view of the world

Here’s what’s most shocking to me. Everything we have now; all of the technology and knowledge and everything we have built and learned - all of it. That is The only thing that sets us apart from people, say, 100 years ago. Or 1,000 years ago. Or even 10,000 years ago. We’re just human beings. If all of our technology and tangible things were removed, we’d be nothing more than prehistoric human beings. “Modern times” is nothing but a label we use to define what we perceive to be an unprecedented advanced time in human history. But the truth is, as humans, we are no more advanced than hundreds of generations ago. We have collected, slowly, all of the knowledge and all of the things necessary to exist in “the modern world” today. Imagine the butterfly effect. What if one single event or one single breakthrough in history never happened? Is there a “thing” that occurred that set us on the path to end up with advanced technology today? What if that one thing didn’t happen? Well, none of us would exist. But, that’s not to say nobody would exist. There could be still, to this very day, a bunch of nomadic prehistoric humans roaming the Earth. We might not have developed animal husbandry or farming or any of that. We could very well still be savages not far removed from what we refer to as animals. We could very well just be a bunch of animals... It’s all a matter of perspective, eh? As is the basis of this video. :)
