Because you can't handle the truth. We live in an odd world these days, and no day goes by without something contradictory happening. Or double standards occurring. The sheer lunacy of it all. Pointed out to you by yours truly. Enter the LoongTao!

No Time Like The Present

Time is constant. Wait, a variable. No, time is a constant in it's variableness. And you can quote me on that. See, time moves. It doesn't stop. It follows the laws of nature, science & the universe. Time bends, in the wake of dark energy, and electromagnetic fields. But in the end, it still in continuous motion.

So why do we talk about the present? Because mankind has to give everything a name. The present is merely the future becoming the past. The present is a process that mankind gave a name to. So you say, "Well, presently..."; that means what you are doing is "becoming the past". The past and the future are "fixed", while the present is "becoming".

Think of it in punctuation terms. The past and future are nouns, and the present is a verb. Everything we think, say or do, is history. Of course, if you think before speaking, as everyone should do, then thinking would be the present, really becoming the past, but what you are about to say, is the future. If you say you are going to do something, then speaking becomes the present, and subsequently the past, but what you are about to do is the future.

Sooner or later, it's all in the past. So why dwell on it.

For now, I'm history.

Until then , which could be next week, tomorrow, in 20 minutes, or in a second. I'll never know.
