When we move forward anyway.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
Time is relative in all kinds of ways. In particular, its perception changes depending on the benchmark. Let’s see.
Take the Moon, for example. If you stare at it during a short drive, you will notice that it follows you religiously. However, this does not mean that it is at a standstill. The Moon revolves around the Earth at a speed of 3,683 km/h and the Earth rotates on itself at an approximate speed of 1,600 km/h, and yet, the Moon seems motionless in the sky when you look at it.
And yes, it’s a simple question of perspective. The further we move away from a subject that we observe, the slower it will seem to us. The same goes for the elements of time. The time scale is different for each interval that we observe. Thus, the longer the pandemic goes on for, the slower it seems to us, and the perception of speed now applies to events closer to us in time.
This is how we can get the impression that things do not always go as fast as we would like, but that despite everything, things are moving forward. It’s just a matter of perspective.
