‘Past-Change is what has been. History? You could say that but nothing is ever that simple.
We understand Present-Change in terms of what is. The here? The now? The immediate?
Future-Change is best understood in terms of what will be. What lies ahead? The shape of things to come? The minute after the minute it takes to read this sentence.’
As a race we humans either dwell in the past, refusing to let go of what has gone before. Or we live for the moment, happy to acknowledge the ever-changing nature of our existence. Failing either of these two, we look forward to things, projecting our thoughts and desires to a time that has yet to occur.’
