A good way to think about it is that we simply do not have a sensory input to detect the passage of time the way we have eyes and ears to detect size, shape, depth and location of objects in space.
Our perception of time is just that - our perception.

Excellent. Of course our sensory input is similarly subjective. We measure time as the distance between two points. I had a prof who claimed that thinking about time for too long would render one insane.
