The past is the present, the future is now, and the present isn’t real. Nothing travels faster than the speed of light. By the time you see the light that Is your present because it’s the light’s past. But the light still exists so there is no objective present except for a new perception of a current past. You may be experiencing it in the “current,” but whatever it is has happened already.
The future is now because the future is the next moment following something spoken or written. You just entered the future and when you finish reading this sentence it will be the past. And now the past is your present because here is another sentence, just a different one. But the present doesn’t objectively exist because the future is always happening.
