The altered passage of time... explained?

According to Einstein, an object moving at phenomenal speed would experience a slowing in the passage of time.  For example, a person aboard a spaceship moving at very high speeds would return home to find that much more time would have passed on the ground than he had experienced aboard the ship.

I propose the compliment is also true:  objects moving exceptionally slowly will experience MORE time than those moving at a normal pace.  This would, for example, explain why a human mind BORED TO A STATE OF NEAR TOTAL ENTROPY would experience far more time than normal, to the point that 2:16 on a tuesday afternoon feels like it should be 5:00 ON FRIDAY!!!
