People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.
— Albert Einstein
Why? Because now is all that is. The past, the present, and the future, all is contained in this moment, now.
How? What you think as past is nothing but your recollection, from your memories, of what you suppose to have happened. It’s not real, it doesn’t exist now, it’s only your memories. And what you think as future is your imagination. Right now it exists only in your mind, otherwise it is not real. The present is the only time that comes close to real, present is what you perceive to be happening right now, and even all recollection (of the past) and all imagination (of the future) can happen in your mind only in the present moment.
