yeah. the past is done with, you can never go back to it. the future isn't real yet, it is only in your head. the present is the only thing you know is real. the past is only in your memories and the future is only in your dreams.

Yes. It's now, we are experiencing it now. I'd be worried if something that had already happened or not happened yet was more real.

It seems to be at the time.

No, my present always seems unreal...maybe it's the drugs...the lack of drugs...

I guess they are equally real but the presnt seems more real than the future and even the past. Although I love that whole sureal thing where something so good and unexpected happens that you can not believe it at the time and it seems like a dream sequence. Wooohoooo

This is one of those stoned questions...

Yea, because its what happening right then and there.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 6/25/03 - 4:46:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
Right when and where?
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 6/26/03 - 9:49:14 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes

You can vote "yes" - keep this bit for comments.

how can something be real at this moment, but become "less real" in the next moment. that is illogical. it's like saying that the 6-inch mark on a ruler is "more real" than the 1-inch mark. past, present and future are all equally real.

The past is memory.

How you rmeber something is not how it necessaraly was.

Of course the twist is how you percieve something is not how it necessaraly is.

Yup "It's one of those stoned questions!"

It's more real than the future.

I would say that the past seems more real the present and future.

Neither the future or past really exists . . .

the present is as real as the past, its happening and it has happened therefore already real. the future is not here yet so it is not happening or has not happened, therefore not real at all until that one millionth of a second when the future turns into the present. If i aim a gun at somebody that is real, him being dead is in the future but not real yet, because i might miss. the second i pull the trigger and the bullet hits, he is dead, the futre has then become the present.

of course it is
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 6/15/04 - 9:02:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
The present is the only thing thats real even though i typed this in the past and you will read it in the future.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Tuesday 6/15/04 - 9:07:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wow, I don't know. This is a little too deep for me right now.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Wednesday 6/16/04 - 2:28:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Hmmm, there's a fake MasterShake in this thread .
16 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 8/10/04 - 7:36:48 AM EST (GMT-5)
the present is the only thing that matters.
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/10/05 - 8:17:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
i dont think so...
16 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 1/10/05 - 9:20:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
The present exists with the past and future. Since albert einstein proved time is not linear, they exist all at once. What is going on now was directly effected by the past and will directly effect the future.

In conclusion, they are all real, and they are all now.
