One thing that I never really stop marveling at is how differently we experience time as we get older. Not only does it seem to go by faster, but our whole idea of how long ago things happened can be totally thrown out of whack.
Sure, being inside for long periods of time has a way of showing us what that feels like as well, but it seems to happen no matter what we do as the years pass.
But whether we perceive it this way or not, time's mysterious march does make an impact with each step it takes. And while its effects are gradual and subtle, the objects we're about to see show how powerful they can be when they add up.
