To you, what does it mean to be truly present? That is, how do we know when we are truly present and when we are living disconnected? I've often wondered how we can actually tell whether or not we are being present, or if we are merely pretending to be present.
Presence, to me, is synonymous with existence. If you think you exist, then you are also present, at least physically. Speaking in terms of mental or emotional presence, I think the same is still true. You are present, even if it is out of the norm - to clarify, imagine a kid in a classroom who won't stop acting up, or (s)he won't listen at all. They are present, but they certainly aren't following the rules or gaining much from the experience.
I think the concept of presence assumes the existence of something to be in the presence of. In this case, do you mean reality?

It is proven that time stops when you are moving at the speed of light. Time as we know it on earth is a man made notion, for it is really a measurement of distance - a revolution around once. Therefore it would be relative to where you were and how fast you are moving and not at all a...
