If we were to lose all of our memories from last year, so that we only had 1 years worth of memories, it wouldn't make any difference to the person
that we are, or of how we perceive the outside world, because all our personal experiences impact and mould our characters whether we are aware of the
influence or not.
Every past event and memory is, in a higher form, imprinted onto our selves, manifesting themselves in our actions, thoughts and emotions.
This is much like a flower being a higher form of the sun.
You wouldn't be able to breakdown the structure of the flower to see the individual photons from the sunlight, but they are there, metamorphosed into
a new form.
In this way everything lives forever, and every moment also. Every minute of my life is coexisting with the present, as I play out events which have
been defined and directed by past events.
But being concious means that the future is also embedded into the present, because we anticipate, plan and react to probable events that may happen.
Events, of course, which would only be probable if events in the past had happened to make them likely.
So all time is a single moment, an expanded version of what we call "now". We say "now", but we might mean a millisecond, or an hour. "Now" is
whatever our awareness perceives as being relevant to the situation at hand.
You could assume that an entity with an expanded conciousness that was aware of all existence would perceive no difference between any point in time,
and that ,therefore, time would cease to exist.
Awareness, therefore, creates time - Limiting attention to a tedious task makes time drag, being absorbed in an interesting, or inspiring activity,
such as looking at a flower, should expand awareness, and therefore "make time fly".
Which is fantastic news, because I'm on holiday in a few weeks time. And if my theory is correct, all I have to do is to enjoy myself as much as
possible and I'll never have to go back to work again.
