” …for us physicists believe the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one. ”
Albert Einstein

Time is … only an illusion. We usually think of time as having three parts: Past, Present amnd Future.
But what is the Past? Only a collection of memories. We can’t experience the Past, we can only remember it. And we can only remember it in the Present. So there is no objective thing that we call the Past. And what is the Future? Only a mental construct in the Present. We can’t experience the Future until it “becomes” the Present. There is no objective thing that we call the Future. It can’t be measured in any way. Time is an illusion we created to try and measure the rate of change of the Present. It’s always now. Ever changing NOW.
