    Default The present is our only reality

    I found this interesting: The future exists only in your imagination, the past only in your memory, the present is your only reality, BUT there is a fraction of a second that passes between experiencing something and registering it in the mind, so the present is always in your past.
    Agree? Disagree?

    I don't really agree. Time is only a foolish man-made perception to quantify advancement and shouldn't be used to define the connection between things such as past and present. Memories are registered synonymously with the altering from the present state...if that makes any sense.
    I embrace all that humanity fears within.

    Our perception of the world allows us to perceive ourselves.

    Being different often means being alone.

    Some people try so hard to hide from the world, only to find that the world doesn't know they exist. Will you give up?

    I just graduated from the Psycho Ward, wanna play?

    That's an interesting way to think. You could say it's in the past, but remember that events don't necessarily end at that exact moment, your mind catches up with the situation almost right away and sometime they overlap. In a sense, the concept of time doesn't really exist, it's just a human attempt to define their existence by trying to fit pieces together.

    I'll use a quote from a book I've read to explain:

    "A story, your history, as you were carried into other stories and other moments that became your life."
    - "Ysabel"

    No. Because the present is the present. Sure when i wrote that sentence in the presence and as of now it was in the past. But right now, like this second is the present.

    Actually, all time exists in space. So I won't concern myself with this.

    Well, there is the present in which something is happening right at this moment. But in the next moment, it becomes the past.


    A joke between my sister and I... Don't mind me.

    Here's the thing: the human mind cannot comprehend reality like this. It's easy to say we do, but we view "time" as linear, when it very well might not be. We know too little about the universe to define reality. Especially with something as limiting as "language".

    There is no present. There is only the near future and immediate past.

    Interesting. . . I guess, I kind-of agree.

    The present can last really only a second. . . Once you reach the next second, the previous second is already the past.

    The future is your imagination, because every small thing can change the future, so you never know what's really going to happen. . .

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm..........Not sure.

    I would say that the past is your only way to escape the future and the present is the only way you can escape the past.People look twoards the future as a good thing when all there trying to block out is there past.Theres no such thing,you'll never escape and you'll never seek that freedom that you long for until you die.
    Set by me.

    Present is present, how long it takes to register in your mind doesn't change what it is.
