How "more of the same" shortens your perception of life:
"This explains why we think that time speeds up when we grow older... Time is this rubbery thing... It stretches out when you really turn your brain resources on, and when you say, 'Oh, I got this, everything is as expected,' it shrinks up." 
- David Eagleman, The New Yorker (9400 words)
