When I look at this screen right now. In my direct experience, there is no one looking at the screen. No one separate. The looking is just happening.
27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
1 John 1
5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.

There is no perceivable 'now'. By the time you perceive it, it's in the immediate past.
Whatever you're perceiving, it's limited to the physical equipment you've been provided at birth. So, 'now' is really 'then' and whatever 'it' is, is merely an impression generated by your hardware. Plato dug that cave, and there's no rising out of it in this plane of existence.
There is an objective reality, but there's no way to be certain exactly what that consists of.

Most of the answers people are looking for are out of their own experience.
Things that have happened in the past have existed and still exist beyond an individual's perception of it at any given moment.
Looking into the future is how we survive and take lessons learned from the past in order to prevent reoccurring mistakes.

But in the end of the day, whether you agree or not it is true, because it's not a belief.
