In my experience I think I forget time but I can never be sure because as soon as there is an assessment of time the past distorts the present and the future comes pouring in. Time must be like the mother of all concepts. It certainly is not an ordinary run of the mill concept.

The reality of what we experience is just this endless, ever-changing now, a now which includes memories and intentions - what we call 'the past' and 'the future'.

Im not sure if I see much difference between "an ever changing now" and "time". I think I see what your getting at but... ???

We could talk about these things till the cows come home. I suggest you meditate on it.

I heard that time was invented to try make the trains run smoothly in India.
When I die,this body will decompose. :thinking:
And crawling on the planets face,some insects called the human race.
Lost in time
Lost in space
And meaning
