Do you feel like things are happening faster and faster as you grow older ? Yes, you do. Every new day is subjectively shorter than any day in your past. But is it ? Are we living in a phase of accelerated history ? Has the world changed more between 1989 and 2019 than between 1959 and 1989 ? Yes, fall of the USSR and 9/11. I feel like there wasn't much change between 2010 and 2015, but the past four years were a barrage of (Bad) News. Can older posters confirm this ?
