I don't know, but like CelestialHorse said, time seems to go faster the older we get, because our frame of reference changes. And it can change all the time. Once when I was on vacation in the Sinai Peninsula, I made a conscious decision to take of my watch and not look at it until I left. By the second day my mind had adapted to such basic things as sleeping and eating when I was tired or hungry, rather than at prescribed times, being able to contemplate for as long as I wished without being aware of the passage of time, etc. My concentration increased exponentially, and it was quite amazing (it's an amazing place altogether, everyone should go to a desert by the sea at least once in their lives).
