I am not a scientist, and Science will make my brain fall over, but sometimes ideas grab me, and I think you, too, should be informed of this one. In amongst the string theory and theories about particle physics is the brane theory…that our four dimensional (length, width, height, TIME) world is a brane world embedded in a multi-dimensional universe.
Now some scientists are saying observations of the universe expanding and accelerating away from us are a signal that the universe is about to flip. When that happens, blip, the time dimension is out-a-here.
And you thought it just seemed like time was passing faster than it used to.
Which also accounts for why I really don't have enough time to vacuum.
