I’m sure you’ve noticed that 10 hours of vacation pass much quicker than one hour of work, despite the fact that you know exactly that one hour is shorter than 10 hours, as measured by the clock. But who cares about clocks, when everything we can perceive is in fact our own distortion interpretation of reality, and not the reality itself? Time is relative.
Well, Albert Einstein said it more than 100 years ago, that a clock in motion ticks slower than a clock which is not moving. Einstein called this time dilation. I was never great at physics, but I always felt Einstein was right: when you are active (be it in movement or thoughts), time runs much faster than when you just lay there, bored like hell, not knowing what to do to make the time pass. A team of international scientists, gathered together at Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany, just proved that Einstein’s theory was correct.
So, if scientists say so, it means that if we keep on moving, our internal clock will tick slower, thus we are going to age slower than average people. This may explain why some people in their 40s look like they are under 30. Of course, skin treatments may also help, but at least now we know that actively living is a scientifically proven tip to preserve our youth. If you don’t agree with that, you can always make use of cosmetic surgery.
Hey, be sure you don’t move too much, or you’ll never die 😉
