Yes. It is a well known fact that fun generates lift.

Some things that fun can induce flight in include your spirits, and your common sense.

Because we are not looking at the clock; we are immersed in the moment.

I could be playing a game . Look at the clock it’s 8 pm . Get through several worlds look at the clock and it’s midnight, Sheesh! Now that’s the truth.

Instead of worrying or concentrating on everything wrong in the world, a person is focused on just one item and that is having fun. a good example is a visit to a casino. everything there is upbeat and time really does fly, especially if you are winning.

It seems to. I guess you get so absorbed in whatever brings you pleasure that you just lose track of time and everything else too sometimes (meal times, errands, chores, etc.)

Surely you have heard the saying time is an illusion?

It’s not so mushc time flying as it is a person being in the flow.
