Now is constructed of “two pasts”. Sometimes they fight with each other.

How do we construct reality cognitively? We borrow a little bit of expectation of the future (based on our past memory) as well as our memory of what “just-happened-a-moment-ago”.

time has an illusionary component to it.

I tend to think that we’re lucky to be able to use this little bit of ‘now’, and expand the two pasts (recorded and observation) and come up with the amazingly complex systems we use to to predict the future with, or to predict things unseen but assumed.
