On Relative Time

When you live long

and the years keep going by

they say the reason time seems to move faster

is because it affects how much time you sense passing

psychologically.

It’s also because the rate that one’s brain

receives stimuli decreases.

Scenery you’ve never seen.

Scents you’ve never smelled.

Music you’ve never heard.

Ingredients you’ve never eaten.

The longer you live

the amount of new emotional excitement

and discoveries decrease

because you already know them all.

Such information is deleted by the brain

without making it into a memory.
