Long - short: airport delay example: the delay feels unbearably long prior to the holiday. Prospectively. Post holiday though the delay feels like a blip, much shorter in memory. Retrospectively. Short - long: holiday example: after your delay and upon arrival at your destination you spend a day sight-seeing. This feels very short and flies by quickly while it's occurring prospectively. But in memory upon reflection, when remembered, it feels very significant and long. As if a lot occurred in that time, but only in retrospect. Long - long: a decade. Short - short: first reported in people watching TV alone, they reported "feeling like time flew by quickly". But later they didn't remember the TV session as a major moment of significant import or duration. They didn't attend to the passing of time during it (no feelings of boredom or time dragging), but also no significant memory worthy experiences. Fill up no space retrospectively, feels short during and after. Unreported though in people who are interacting 'meaningfully' with content (either socially or as a hobby, i.e. collecting memorabilia), despite it being through the same medium.

I've seen it before when it was published... But seeing it again now when I actually searched to know about how to slow my life down as I'm growing older, this video feels so much more powerful and insightful! Damn! I'm just so grateful to live in such a time! And grateful for Vsauce!

Until human reach any ''black hole'' in the universe then you can start to ask about the ''illusions of time''... for now i think is just a bunch or bullshit stuff if you want to explain by science lol...unless you come up with paranormal stuff such as ''other dimension'' or ''ghost repeat thier behaviour in the same place same timer everyday'' ....etc which is also another ''bullshit'' stuff as we dont have any strong evidence on that .

Anyone notice how Vsauce videos have gotten consistently longer over time? The first ones were around 5mins, then 8, 12, 15, 20, and now we get 30 min episodes :) being a hyper analytical person ive noticed this in my own career and personal projects.

The rate that time seems to pass could also be related to familiarity. Going to an unfamiliar place, the journey there can seem to take a long time but the journey back not so long and repeated journeys to that place seem shorter than the first. This could be to do with more new information being processed by the brain. The more familiar it becomes, the less time seems to pass. The reasoning here could also explain why time seems to pass more quickly as we get older. Everything becomes more familiar as we get older....been there, done that!
