future/past present time paradox

shadowlea

Wauchope, Australia

Artist's Description

If we say that the future does not exist yet, we can say also that the past does not exist anymore. In this case, we can say that we as observers exist only in the present. The present has no duration and we, as observers, approximate our temporal position by extrapolating a coherent intersection of what we know from the past with what we expect from the future.

Therefore, the present has no positive attributes itself and relies only on the information granted by the non-existent past and the non-existent future.

or

“People like us who believe in physics know

,
that the distinction between the past, the present
,
and the future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion"
.
Albert Einstein
