I have this theory

It has to do with the proportion of time you are alive relative to the time in the context of question. As you get older, you have obviously lived longer. Therefore, a year becomes smaller and smaller relative to what you have already lived. A newborn's day consists of half of their life, while a year for me is 1/19 of my life. In short, time only speeds up. It is basically mathematical.

Did you ever read "When you Reach me"?

Yes I have, but I don't remember this being in there. Oh gosh, I hate subconsciously plagiarizing.

Well, I suppose it's not in the book, but what you've written feels like something from the book.
