The mind is incapable at looking at now. The mind is always concerned with 'next'. The mind lives in a dream of it's own making.
What is here and now is not conceived by man.
That's interesting, coming from someone whose username is "Itisnowagain". To be perfectly accurate, the past is the only thing that ever really
exists. The future is always uncertain, and the present is always becoming the past, and the past is where everything ends up...so the past is the
only sort of time that really exists for any substantial period.
The mind is perfectly capable of looking at the now. For instance, a football player is always in the now when playing because the 'now' determines
the 'next'. Unless you see where the ball is NOW, where the ball is going NOW, how fast the ball is traveling NOW, where you are NOW, what direction
you're going NOW, and how fast you are running NOW, you can't determine, "Where will the ball be next" or "where should I go next".
In another example, a driver has to make the same calculations using the same observations in the same sense of time. What's on my left right now,
what's on my right now, what's behind me now, who's turning now, where is that car going now, what color is the signal now, what is my speed now,
what are the road conditions now...we are always using the now to determine the next.
Honestly, sometimes I wonder if you exist in the same reality, the way you confuse these things...
