Slow Down Time By Learning New Things

It seems that time passes faster as we get older because we are learning fewer new things. At least, that is the theory of this brain researcher discussed here.

“The more familiar the world becomes, the less information your brain writes down, and the more quickly time seems to pass. ‘Time is this rubbery thing...it stretches out when you really turn your brain resources on, and when you say, ‘Oh, I got this, everything is as expected,' it shrinks up.’"
