expressing itself as an emotion, which we then tell a story about and call the present.

What present moment? There’s always lag – hysteresis. The present is the creation of our brains comparing “what just entered our systems” with our expectations of what “was supposed to happen” and comparing the two, expressing itself as an emotion, which we then tell a story about and call the present. It all happens in around 400ms at most, sometimes shorter.
