It's too late it's already here! For seriously though...has anyone ever noticed that your always in the now. Tomorrow, yesterday, one hour from now they don't really exist...it's always now! Cody I know you understand what I'm sayin'!
I think the notions of past and future exist to frame our experience. The word 'experience' would have no meaning were it not for our distinction between past and future. Experience is life itself. It is not enough to declare "I am" or "I exist," even though that seems sufficient for the present moment, which is always now. There must be some continuity to experience if one is really BEING. There must also be some linking feature- memory? anticipation? Do memory and anticipation count if it is always only now? Do the past or the future work to shape the present? Or do they exist PURELY in the mind and not in any physical/ spatial medium? Does time have physical properties?
Some say time is elastic, and can be stretched or shrunken depending on the speed with which distances in space are traversed. Is your 'now' the same as my 'now'? Or, to me, would your 'now' have already occured? And what of the terms 'already' or 'later' or 'before' and 'after'? Conveniences of language? Or legitimate descriptive terms?
