"Now"

It takes a tenth of a second for the brain to assimilate incoming data.

Does that tell you anything?

how long does the brain take to assimilate the 'here and now' as in Eternal?

Why are we concerned with the workings of the brain :?:

We're never aware of the present?

We're always dealing with the past?

Long enough to completely separate the "you" from what it conceives of as the "now".

There is no "we" to be aware.

The sense of I am arises concurrently with conceptual thought.

But you do get a small prize:


Right about now.......(well not really now).......you should be experiencing a sinking feeling........kinda like the sense of separateness is becoming transparent.

Stopped the truck in the desert once....

The Silence had you surrounded.

The Big cities like NYC and Atlanta have

this incessant drone about them that

keeps the nervous system buzzing....this is not a good thing at all.

A tiny trailer...in the desert would be nice.
