OK but you didn't cover the biggest illusion of time: presentism, or the belief that only the present really exists. Einstein's theories entail that past, present and future are all equally real and there is nothing special about "now". Check out "What Makes Time Special?" by Craig Callender (OUP 2017)

Time is the weakest of the dimensions. And is constant through all 12 dimensions. Yes, 12. YOU are the time scale of these currently perceived 4 dimensions. You are the thinking of now... but it is the past. And forever the past. You can not think in the future, only the past. As it fleets from one moment to the next. It is written, just look to find. All Knowledge is there. You may only seek and find to climb the great funnel of ascension. Look to the chalice and the blade and you will find.

Time seems longer to a child not just due to it being a greater percentage of their existence, but their development as an individual is accelerated. In 6 months they change radically as a sentient being. A 30 year old generally does not change very much in that time frame and is not learning basic formularies of life.

I was always annoyed when we'd go into a new chapter in ancient/early history class, and find out that all this other stuff was happening at the same time as stuff we'd already learned about. I ended up with these pillars of information that aren't connected by a timeline. I'd feel like I missed some context plus it's harder to remember the information now as an adult.

More likely those three days in isolation nothing happened, so your brain over-wrote those memories to use the hardware for newer data. You probably only have one or two left that were moved to long term memory.

I've had the "pipe dream" effect before with video game graphics. I remember when I was small, thinking that video game graphics looked so unbelievably realistic, and that it couldn't possibly get any better. Nowadays I look back and think "lol gross"
