Is the Schumann Resonance making time pass faster?

On the 19th of July, 2020, the planet completed its rotation 1.4602 milliseconds faster than the typical 86,400 seconds.1 Thus, planet Earth has indeed rotated faster. But wait, the planet is and will spin at a much lower rate until it is absorbed by the Sun, which is probably happening in approximately 7.5 billion years. Nevertheless, numerous individuals are assertive that time itself is passing much faster – at least it feels as though. So, is the rotating of the Earth implicating on time? Is the Schumann Resonance to blame?

To wow you, it just happens that in 2020 Earth has had the shortest day in history since measurement started to be taken, by precision astronomical clocks. To measure such small changes in the Earth’s rotation, atomic clocks are crucial for the measurement. This type of clock is used by space agencies and meteorological centres.

But hold your excitement, as the Earth is actually rotating at a much lower rate than it was a thousand years ago, and yet much quicker than it will in a thousand years to come. So, no. Time is not affected by how fast this planet spins. The future of Earth is, therefore, to slow the pace ever so slightly over the course of the megaannum.

Schumann Resonance

The Schumann Resonance is an electromagnetic phenomena that occurs in the earth’s ionosphere.2 According to NASA, the Schumann resonance does not occur simply because of the earth’s rotation. This pulse occurs when electromagnetic waves from earth’s storms (lightnings) circulate around the surface, until they combine a pulse and repeat itself. The Schumann resonance is used by meteorologists to measure and monitor indirectly the global incidence of electric discharge.

Some groups connected to the New Age movement say that the Schumann pulse used to be 7.83hz, and that around 1980 the pulse started to accelerate. To a small number of those individuals, when the Schumann Resonance, that is, when the pulse achieves 13 cycles per second, the planet will stop spinning for 3 days, and hence resuming its rotation to the other side, from west to east.
Needless to say that such a phenomena is not occurring. If such predictions are true, physical life would catastrophically end and, under a spiritualistic point of view, which is generally broader and more accurate and in accordance with science, this process have never occurred in any other planet inhabited by other beings, either in an astral or physical form whatsoever.

Humans and the Perception of Time

Paul Janet theorised the idea that we perceive time by comparing it with our life span. The French philosopher conjectured that time feels to be shorter the older we get. For example, when we are 5 years old, one year out of those 5 years equals to a 20% of our entire life. And when we are, say, 10 years old, the same one year is equivalent to 10% of our whole lifespan. When we turn 15, that exact one year represents just 6.6%. And that’s how years feel to be passing quicker.

Who perceives time going faster may also be just… ageing, as their physical sensory components assimilate time differently from ordinary clocks. The velocity in which images, sounds and all senses are computed by the brain may slow down over time.3 That does not represent brain deterioration, but rather the vast connections the brain of an older individual has in comparison with the brain of a younger person, which is presumed to have less connections.

The Fourth Dimension

The Fourth dimension is also named space-time, as it illustrates the third dimension measured or observed across time. The 4th dimension is, therefore a measurement of the same space in another locale of space. Similar to a river, which may be observed as the same river whenever you look at it, the waters seen at first are no longer there, which exemplifies how the river can be assumed as being another river.
The physical brain is an impediment when the ask is to understand such a dimension, for its linear understanding of time is compromising. Nonetheless, imagine that the whole universe is expanding, therefore moving. If all moves over time, the object A can be measured as A1. But one second later, the same object will no longer be found exactly where it was in the universe, so its measurement may change to A2 – even though it is still the same object. Same object, different position. Same space, different time. Understand “object” as a book, a planet or the entire physical dimension.

Amongst spiritualist groups, it is said that time passes 4 times faster than it does on planet Earth. It may vary from dimension to dimension and how close to the astral orbs those layers of dimensions are – as gravity plays a role is keeping time passing at slow rates.

All in all, Earth may have had a quick day here or there, but generally, it is spinning much slower – forever and ever. Regarding Schumann resonance, it is NOT how the earth is doing energetically or spiritually. Our perception of time, on the other hand, is what may be changing. Focusing on the now seems to be the best perception of time anyway.
