Time seems longer to a child not just due to it being a greater percentage of their existence, but their development as an individual is accelerated. In 6 months they change radically as a sentient being. A 30 year old generally does not change very much in that time frame and is not learning basic formularies of life.

I was always annoyed when we'd go into a new chapter in ancient/early history class, and find out that all this other stuff was happening at the same time as stuff we'd already learned about. I ended up with these pillars of information that aren't connected by a timeline. I'd feel like I missed some context plus it's harder to remember the information now as an adult.

More likely those three days in isolation nothing happened, so your brain over-wrote those memories to use the hardware for newer data. You probably only have one or two left that were moved to long term memory.

I've had the "pipe dream" effect before with video game graphics. I remember when I was small, thinking that video game graphics looked so unbelievably realistic, and that it couldn't possibly get any better. Nowadays I look back and think "lol gross"

i was on board with this until the part about pre20th century people not seeing changes decade to decade or generation to generation. thats such an annoying misconception. watch any of the many wonderful historical fashion channels and they'll show you very clearly that 1740 was very different in the minds of people in 1740 than 1710. But its not just then. Ancient roman writers are FULL of old men complaining about back in my day, and how the generation before them was better and the generation after them worse, with all these new modern shenanigans. Time travel via machine was not a popular trope because the idea of science fiction was new. but visions from the past or future via mysticism or religious experience probably got more play time, as it were. And historical fiction is like. literally as old as myth. The idea that the past was different and the future will be different is not remotely new - thinking of it that way falls prey to the very fallacies you just discussed.

I was doing some random googling and decided to google michael stevens because I have been watching a lot of mind field recently, I didn't expect to learn that Michael's birthday is January 23 (if google is actually right...) So I want to just wish Michael a HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY!!

You also have to consider the establishment of neurons and patterns. An adult that has gotten used to life, will not maintain some of those neural connections that were established, versus someone that is constantly learning a new world. Basically, when you are used to the patterns of life, you tend to pay attention less, therefor, time is perceived differently, because of the amount of information being taken in. As we get older, we tend to slow our lives down, and the events are what seem to pass us by.
