The ‘present’ is the boundary between the what has occurred and what might occur. We cannot live there …
Consciousness is an emergent event occurring across that boundary.
We gather a little ‘memory from recent past and mix it with a little anticipation about the immediate future - and that’s where we are - Right Now!
Think on it. Read a single word in a book .. it means nothing. That would represent the ‘now’ - the ‘present’; - but the words that came before it and the words that immediately follow - bring those into the mix and ‘meaning’ emerges.
