” You sense that time moves only forward, steadily from point to point; never stopping or going backward. But this is not so. In fact, the past, present and future, perhaps all possible pasts, presents and futures exist simultaneously and are around you now.
And yet you are only aware of the present which, because by the time you are aware of something it is already in the past, is so infinitesimal and fleeting as to be non existent. So reality, as you experience it, is made up of your recollections about the past and expectations about the future. Perception then, is a conversation between memory and imagination.” Page 4 Memoirs of the Universal Man –Volume One by Donovan Craig
