Experience of time
Ever thought how time can go fast by or never seem to move an inch?
The secret is hidden in your Brain.
In fact if you load tasks on yourself time starts to accelerate if you wait for something doing nothing time seems to stand still.
Time sure is not a constant but this is not the reason for this experience. During, let’s say a stressful event, your adrenaline skyrockets, which trigger a series of effects in body, allowing a broader experience of one moment.
Generally speaking there are 4 forms of experience.

Your Brain creates tasks prior action handled throughout the day following a plan.
Time goes by as we consider normal/scheduled.
In times of high stress certain hormones emerge creating pressure on one task to solve the issue. Adrenaline hormone emerges creating a one task experience making the time fly by extremely fast.
In an emergency situation a strong hormone flow allows a multi focus on a series of tasks regarding the issue; letting these tasks run parallel and in perfect timing to overcome the given stimulation. The experience of the summary of these tasks making it seem that time stretches for the moment. There is a complex hormonal cascade of over 30 stress hormones, such as adrenaline (epinephrine),
noradrenalin and cortisol, which have a powerful and widespread effect on our body's biochemistry, giving us the extra strength and speed we need to deal with the threatening situation.
In times without stimulation or motivation on the other hand the time stretches to endless mode since there is no experience or task given.
So all in all it is the summary of tasks accomplished and energetic stage that is creating the experience of individual time.
