Are you a space alien?

Spacetime is relative to the observer. The observer only experiences the every changing now. But my now and your now are not the same because we are observing it from two different locations in spacetime but it is still "now" for each of us. The past doesn't exist other than memories which gradually decay over time and the future only exists as a set of probabilities.

First you must drop the illusion of existence in the now
now does not exist and is past as soon as you think about it.

So are you saying that now is an illusion? well I think I understand it in terms of the universe that we reside in is forever moving forward. therefore by the time the thought of now has occured in our brain now has already past. therefore only future exists in terms of quantum possibility is this what you are trying to say? or am i way off here?

Now cannot be spoken about or grasped by the mind - the mind splits now into before and after.
Now is not of time - now is where the concept of time happens.
