In terms of Time - How long is the present before it becomes the past, can it be measured.


Maybe there is no such thing as the present. Before you have had time to finish pronouncing the word it becomes the past. Maybe there is only the future and the past. Can the present be measured in terms of time, if so, how long is that measurement.

    Or could it be that there is no future or past, only a continuing forever present ?

    The past doesn't exist - put quite simply, it has gone forever.

    Neither does the future exist because it hasn't happened yet and may never happen.
