Equation of Time

"It's the difference between what time it is measured by the sun, say, using a sundial, and the time on your watch," I tell Katie as we're getting ready to go to work.

"Today it's at a low point, so your watch is slow compared to the sun by like, three minutes," I continue.

She seems unimpressed, but I'm trying to figure out if this has anything to do with my sense, lately, that time has been going slower, but because our watches go at the same speed it's impossible to measure. I know this is crazy, but I can sometimes feel the fluctuations when I do my meditation in the morning, and it's nice to pretend for a second that it's a phenomenon of the world and not just something in my head.
