• Time is definitely speeding up

    by Donald K. Sanders

    Time seems to be moving faster and faster. It seems just like yesterday, I was a young 21-year-old kid in high school. A short 10 years later, I almost got my AA degree. Just one more year, and I could have had that little piece of paper that says Donald K. Sanders, Associate of whatever, whatever. I don’t know where the time went, but I never got back to school until I was well into my 50s. Time is so fast. They say in the end, your life is a blink of the eye.

    So now, I have the dilemma — should I think about it or not? When I made up my mind to think about it, a full year had passed and I don’t know how old I was then! I mentioned to my wife that I was going to try to think about time, and lo and behold, she was already thinking about it.

    On her way home, she was listening to some guy on the radio talking about time speeding up because of a wobble or some kind of crap like that. I told her, “Don’t you worry your pretty little head about it, I’ll get to the bottom of this.”

    “I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna think about time,” I says.

    I started thinking right away, and this is what I thought.

    Actually, time isn’t moving any faster. A day still has 24 hours or 1,440 minutes or 86,400seconds. Time and how it works is supposed to be an absolute. Or, some think time is relative to each person’s perception, like facts, truth and beauty. To each his own.

    If all of time and matter were speeding up, there would really be no way of telling. There are lots of people out there that have their own explanation, but I think everyone will agree that time is gaining speed. It seems as if New Year’s Eve was just yesterday. Another thing —, look at how fast your children are growing up. It seems just like yesterday my son Joe was 6 years old and I was scolding him for rooting in the garbage. I can look out in my yard, and his toys are still lying there where I ran over them with the lawnmower.

    According to the late Ian Lungold, we are in the 9th level of the creation cycle. The 8th came to an end in February 2011. It was called the “Galactic Cycle” and we are now in the “Conscious co-creation” cycle. Each of these nine Creation cycles is 20 times shorter than the previous cycle. Well, that’s reasonable.

    Light and time are all tangled up, and one affects the other. In the old days, everyone thought that nothing could travel faster than light. Well that’s all changed now. CERN physicists are firing neutrino, which don’t interact with normal matter and can pass straight through the earth, to a detector in Italy. The neutrinos from CERN were showing up at Gran Sasso a few billionths of a second early. In other words, they appeared to be getting from Switzerland to Italy faster than light would travel the same distance.

    Now see, if we had built the “Sanders Muon Ringy Thingy” like I suggested to our city manager some years ago, we’d have all those neutrinos for ourselves. We could all be rich right now. But that’s a different story, and a sore subject around my house.

    So, now you can see that time has to increase speed along with these neutrinos thingys, right?

    I decided to ask my friend Terry Vender (a government man who works for the local city maintenance department) because he says he knows everything. Terry says, “I know time perception speeds up with age, but this is starting to get crazy.” His theory is that the increase in the speed of time is supposed to happen to get us where we need to be for March 2012 when the world will end.

    So now I’m starting to get scared and I don’t want to think about it anymore, but Terry didn’t want to let it lie. He wanted to keep on yapping and yapping about this and that. I don’t know how it happened, but he started talking about “Black Matter” that makes up 93 percent of the universe, but nobody can see it.

    Well, I can tell you that I was so upset about this stuff that pretty soon me and Terry was toe to toe and staring each other down. Terry is a pretty big guy so I backed down pretty quick. I pointed my finger at him and said, “Watch yourself, big guy — I’m like those neutrino thingys, I’m fast!” With that said, I made the “wipe on-wipe off” motion with my hands. He said he was going to go get the backhoe because he was going to dig a hole for me.

    I don’t know what that’s supposed to mean, but that was almost a year ago, I think. I’ll let you know what else I think when I get back to thinking.

    • Donald, you are always thinking and then you get me to thinking and I already think too much. I am going to take a day off and not think. Mindless TV might do it or listening to music on the Grammy’s tonight. I like how you think even though most of it I don’t clearly understand but then I start thinking about it and then realize I still don’t get it.

    • I feel just like you… time is hurtling forward faster and faster. Sometimes I feel left behind… in the dust…

      My brother-in-law of my sister-in-law,
      I think time has something to do with the ‘wave-particle duality of light. The most frequently practical occurrence with light can be explained by waves. But the photoelectric effect suggests a particle nature of light.
      On top of that, electrons were found to display a dual nature.
      My not graduating from an institution of higher learning, the best I can figure, the sun comes up, the sun goes down, if you divide the wave by the particle, multiplied by the speed of light and divided by the distance of the earth from the sun, squared; subtracting the continent from the hemisphere, we learn that……time flies…..
      You might want to check my math…

    • Ralph, Yea, I was pretty far out there when I wrote the wave particle thingy, everyone knows that the problem arises when you figure in the duality of light thingy. I guess it’s a tripleuality thingy afterall. Thanks for your comments and I’m going to send some of my people out there to take care of you country folks for disagreeing with me in public. I’ll have to ask your brother for permission first and he has to get permission from the Burtons of course. I’ll make the corrections in my calculations when time permits. That means never! Ha Ha
