    There is no past or future in fact, but the present is a consequence of the past and the future will be a consequence of the present. The cause-effect law.

    There is a past , history records it .

    The future , is about history and true the present . But also the future is also about those that can vision the future .

    Time exists.
    We have evidence of the past. The future is potential.

    Potential for Humanity to write its own Destiny , or to have our Destiny controlled .

    And I want to beat you to whatever time travel machine arrives

    Here is a puzzle I put somewhere in a post

    Clocks go slower on the top floor of tall buildings and faster than at ground level
    So what stops the top floor sliding into the past and ground floor moving into the future?

    Neither of which exist

    If you have evidence that they do exist please provide coordinates or go there and bring back a few photos

    Cheers

    When you get there, you will discover that flying cars are a mere ten years away from being a reality.
    It does not matter when you get there, it will be ten years too soon.

    "Karma" by any other name. I think it's possible to make predictions (like rolling a marble across the floor), but there are always variables that pop out of nowhere (like the house cat that decides to pounce on a marble).

    potential exists. We function within the present.

    I brought back this message from the past as evidence.

    It is possible that you answer to this message in the future.

    There seems to be an interference in your mind.

    If we are getting into the puerile insults, then I would contend that the issue resides somewhere between your chair and the keyboard...

    This is an issue of semantics - specifically involving the word 'exist'.
    Arguably, the past does not exist. Arguably it does exist.
    Both are true - from the right perspectives.
    And you each have your own perspective.

    There is no point in arguing it further.

    An edition.

    Time and duration are synonyms; and they are defined like (1) the interval
    between two sequential moments, (2) the permanence of things in reality. Thus,
    the becoming-duration duality is becoming-time too. Becoming is the inherent
    property of matter and bodies to experience changes. The becoming-time duality
    explains existence.

    THE PHILOCHRON TABLE

    ELEMENT ............ PROPERTY ............. MAGNITUDE
    ... space .................. extension ................ length, area, volumen
    ... matter ................ becoming ................ time or duration

    They are not.
    It is currently 2017-11'17 19:10.
    It is also currently 1510963860 , Unix time.
    Those are both the same times.

    Neither is a duration; they are both simply the time, here.

    duration is the movement of an object . the object does not care nor is affected by any measure of its movement .

    So ... objects have to move to have a duration?
