Is it true that it is the past that produces the future in this present time? Is it also true that..
... the future does not exist, and that we build the future from the fragments of the past?
I am currently doing a research on Fibonacci Numbers Sequence and kind of stumbled on some weird discovery about time. Your opinion here may be a confirmation to my findings. Let's share it please.
I think and agree partially that future is built from past. This is true in the sense that technology innovations, cultural, social and environmental developments and progress or regress definitely affects our future. But at the same time future is not entirely the result of past. It has its own uniqueness as some of the features are not effects of past and they take place leaving no scope at all for your prediction or expectation.
Thank you Venkatachari M
My finding showed me that as a father marries a mother and give birth to a child, so the past also merges with the present to create the future. What do you think?
I agree with you to some extent. Just like it may not always give birth. And even if birth takes place in almost most cases, it is not just the combination of past and present. It has its own features which may not tally with past and present
To some extent I think the present is built from the past. The advancement in mobile phone came from the discovery made by Graham Bell years ago.
The past & future don't exist, & all there is is the present moment....To know/feel the present moment requires being in a no mind state, similar to whilst meditating....Most people are always in a mind state of thinking, & so those people will always look back or worry about the future, & so can never know/feel the present moment....I know it's complicated to understand & that's because even though i do know/feel the present moment when I'm in it, it's not something that can be put into words....It has to be practised to be felt/known, but then you still won't be able to put it into words yourself....So to experience the present moment & to realise that's all there ever is, requires a lot of training in emotions & feelings control & mindful practice....So if you train you will realise that the present moment is all there ever is, & you yourself are building your future & past present moments right now, now, now, now etc....What you did in the past which was the present moment at that time, does not shape your "now" moment or your future now moments....Only ever what your doing "right now" is shaping both your future "&" your past, but like i say it can only ever be realised or understood through a good few months of training, & is impossible to realise by reading....To give you a clue making love or doing something you love doing when time seems to fly by in no time at all, is because your in the present moment which is "outside space & time"....The only trouble is it can never be referred to in your mind, because as soon as you try your back in a mind state of thinking which is "inside space & time"....I bet I've really confused everyone now!lol, but that's why it can only ever be experienced after a lot of effort & practice & months...."THE" most amazing life changing experience there is to experience, & once experienced that person will never ever look back with regret ever again, & it answers 1000's of questions about people. :-)
You may say that you ought to live in present. But you can't negate past or future. You perceive the time moving and each moment that you experience is the past of your next moment. You are always travelling from past to present and past is a reality
Daveadams36, Please listen to Venkatachari M.
I think he is right. I too once was of the opinion that the present is only reality but I soon found out that you cannot negate the existence of both the past and the present
In the present moment you don't perceive time, because in the present moment you operate only on your senses..Time is different in the present moment (where you have "no" thoughts), you can just picture a task without picturing then do the task. :-)
Daveadams36, you are very right. But what you explain here gives me the picture of one who is not operating in this realm. But my question whats to address understanding of time in this very physical realm, hence your judgment is true out of earth.
What u do right now this very moment shapes your future moment, & becomes ur past moment at the "same time"..However whilst in a state of thoughts, you can never ever witness/feel/know the "present moment"..Meditation practice is key to understan
I agree with this: "What u do right now this very moment shapes your future moment, & becomes ur past moment at the "same time"" but however I still argue that you don't have to exit the state of thoughts to experience the present. I experienced

Do you really live in your present?

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....
