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.
