"Time is a social phenomenon. This property is not incidental to time; it is its essence.
Time, equally in single cells as in their human conglomerates, is the engine of interaction."

Alan Burdick in "Why time flies: a mostly scientific investigation"

Burdick cites the research of French neuropsychologist Sylvie Droit-Volet, 
who studies the warping of our temporal perception: 

"Our slightest social exchanges — our glances, our smiles and frowns — gain potency from our ability to synchronize them among ourselves"

"(...) The key ingredient for temporal perception seems to be a physiological response called arousal.
Physiologists and psychologists think of arousal as a primed physical state — not moving but poised to move. When we see movement, even implied movement in a static image, the thinking goes, we enact that movement internally.
In experimental psychology, “arousal” refers to the degree to which the body is preparing itself to act in some manner. It’s measured through the skin’s electrical conductivity and heart rate."
