    Well, I think it depends on what 'average' is. I think it would be different..depending on what all is going on in daily life at different stages of life. But, I suppose, at least at this stage of my life where I don't have a lot going on, I'd say time goes by pretty slowly (maybe like 6.5).
    And I would hide my face in you and you would hide your face in me, and nobody would ever see us any more.

    The older one gets, the faster time passes.

    Time taken is always compared to time already spent. Five minutes is a larger percent of an infant's time than a senior's time.

    it doesnt seem like you can ask infants but anyway age would be a smart addition to a poll

    Depends.
    If I,m looking forward to something (good or bad) and am unlikely to get distracted from it, time goes so f'n slow!!
    But if I got distracted (which i usually do), time moves too frickn fast!

    Of course, when i was younger, time seemed to move fairly slow. It took forever for the clock to say i could leave school/work and go home. (though too fast when having to leave home to go to school/work).

    A year to a 5 year old is 20% of their lifetime...and is likely to be viewed as having gone by slowly.
    A year to a 50 year old is but a mere 2% of their life...and would likely be viewed as having gone by quickly.
    The days, i assume, would be in proportion, as well.

    When activity is high, time is compact and seems to pass quicker. When there is little activity, time seems to stretch to a crawl. So the question is more or less asking, "how busy are you"? And in modern days, the answer is probably "more busy than is natural". So mix periods of high activity with low activity.

    What do I have to compare it to? I only have one possible frame of reference on time, and that's how I experience it myself. Sometimes it feels fast, other times it feels slow depending on how mentally invested I am in something. As an entity in and of itself though, regardless of my experience of it, the question gets a shitton trickier when you take into account near-light speed travel and all that other relativity jabber. I could just be missing the point, but I'd say you're asking too broad of a question.

    i think it was that variance in activity level is more balanced than a constant medium level of activity

    Sometimes. When you're busy and doing more in life, time flies each day, but big-picture, you feel like you've lived much more, because you've done so much more and created so many more memories. When you do nothing, veg out all day and lie around, time passes slowly in the short-term, day by day, but long-term, it seems like months fly by, since you haven't created as many memories.

    Not sure how to answer the poll, not sure what we're comparing time to.

    Well time can be in the solid, liquid or gas phase. High viscosity time is when everything is proceeding in slow motion and the mind can't put anything together outside the sluggish progression. Low viscosity rushing water time is... it all happened in a flash. Ice time is like when everything froze--in what feels like one frozen moment. Gas phase time is seeing time in a different way--pot helps. You can see it as slow and fast all at once, and grasp at the non-linearity sense of it. That's when people start saying it isn't real.

    there is only now. and now seems like... now. and now. and now. and another now.

    how a moment "seems" is relative to how one previously experienced prior moments and the flow of moments is influenced by many things.

    blah blah, sorry, very unhelpful post.

    it varies based on what i'm doing or what i'm on or how i feel etc. sometimes super fast when mY mind's occupied, or slow etc.

    Which is good. It feels like a safety, gives us time to think and, as a matter of course, live out our lives. For all we know, time is just a metaphor for learning.

    Time is a flowing thing that's relative. It comes and it goes. Mostly it goes.

    @MD I will spend hours on the internet with high perceptive stimulation but little perceptive variance, and the time flies by. Afterwards the moments seem indistinct. So I think changes in perception are what give leverage for discerning time instead of activity levels.

    Time is essentially the origin of all evil. Spacetime... the birth of the universe.

    Space, is the origin of all good, because space is expansive and includes all, and doesn't put limits on anything. With 'space in your heart' it leaves room for things like forgiveness, empathy, patience and True Love.

    Time makes things appear to matter. Time is what cuts the heart and makes conditional love. It makes things appear to die and fade away. It makes you decide and give ultimatums. It makes you be a killer. You have time for A but you don't have time for B. Time is represent by an arrow, the pure sociopathic arrow that cuts through it all. Time is the only thing that can cut and can't feel itself. Time is what created guilt, which is the flipside of empathy. Guilt is the darkside of empathy, only empathy turned inverted.

    Reality is complicated and squiggly. Hard, with so many variables. Its because there was space, and then time- and the battle for it, the eternal battle for space vs. time that wages this very day, creates a conflict that everybody identifies with. The more time cuts, the more space saves itself by evolving. Its also represented as the battle between masculine and feminine energy, the male tries to win by penetrating the innocence, the women tries to win by making more of the innocent.

    I realized that I just gave all Ni dual seekers an orgasm on the forum. You can thank me later.

    I'd rate it at 2. When I was in high school, time passed sooo slowly because everything was terribly boring. Time slows down when I work in an office, too. On the other hand, time literally flies when I'm self employed, every hour is worth 15€ so I always feel like I need to compress the highest amount of activity in the shortest amount of time while on the other hand there are a zillion things I should learn and further insert develop so I need to do everything I can at the same time and not leave a single moment left out etc etc

    Well time can be in the solid, liquid or gas phase. High viscosity time is when everything is proceeding in slow motion and the mind can't put anything together outside the sluggish progression. Low viscosity rushing water time is... it all happened in a flash. Ice time is like when everything froze--in what feels like one frozen moment. Gas phase time is seeing time in a different way--pot helps. You can see it as slow and fast all at once, and grasp at the non-linearity sense of it. That's when people start saying it isn't real.

    Awesome. That's exactly how I perceive time, too.

    Yeah thats been my experience, and I've done a lot of vegging so i know :S. i'm happier when I have less time to myself and my social lifes buzzing to say the truth because I have something to look back on.
