Why does time seem to fly by when we are having fun: thought accelerates closer to speed of light or your mind is too occupied to pay attention to the time?

i think it's because the mind is occupied and loses track of the time.

I lose track of time playing video games, but I hardly think they're making me think any more quickly or deeply than I would with something challenging, but uninteresting.

I'm not sure how you envision thoughts accelerating

I'm wondering if it's because you're less stressed. Since, apparently, when in stressful or dangerous situations, time seems to go by in slow motion because your eyes take in more "pictures." (Or something like that, I learnt this off a documentary on the human body...) So, maybe, since you're having fun and that means you're more likely not stressed, time seems to speed up?

Just a guess. I could be totally wrong.
