As you say, it is the 'promises' (lies and misdirection, of course) that manipulate the electorate, not 'the future', which is no more than words and concepts (since it doesnt exist as other than that).
All moments actually exist synchronously. 'Past' and 'future' are illusions from a particular perspective. Science says that there is no reason not to be able to 'remember' the 'future' as well as the 'past'. I have found this to be accurate.
All moments are Here/Now!
Ha.. well done.. yet here is a great example which can support that concept.
If you walking in some sand, you turn around and see were you once walked, the proof is the foot prints in made in that sand therfore you can see the past step's you took in your mind and in the physical world around you, yet if you look forward, you dont see the foot print's in the sand in front of you, for you have not made them yet, for you may only see them in your thought's, not in the physical world around you.
Yet the real word's are in parable format which is (For my feet are no more in the sand i walked, for the path i make ahead are my feet aswell lay not in the sand?)
The other half is (As i walk again within the sand, the winds of this land blow, and i no longer see where is was or where i will be, for i no longer can see my past step's withen the sand. Have i lost my sight of time aswell?)
So the past present and future are at one withen are mind's bound by are ability to difine the information that we have withen are mind's, yet that is all bound by are or other's perception of it all...
So you are 100% correct when you say exist synchronously.
yet the reason why, would be that we are allways or allmost allways thinking of what you just did, what are you doing, and what will you do, hence the thought of the past present and future are as one with one another, mainly because each one couldnt be without the other, the reason why is
The past present and future all happen at the same time, hence they are just words made to define a perceptable action that people have observed before we existed.
The reason why they all happen at the same time is.
The present dosnt last, the future become's your present just to become your past, all withen an instant synchronously within your self
You make your present, you make your past, you make your future, But it never lasts ^^
but for you complex nerde peep's here is a tuff one to follow ^^
The future is the past that you made in the present.
This one is a tuff concept about the 3 observed effect's and perception from one point within perceptable time, to another point within perceptable time.
So if you think of the past in the present it effect's or changes your future that become's your present(as you think of it or see it) then become's your past ^^ so all 3 action's allways happen at the same time. your thoughts will allways be the future the present and the past at the same time you think of them. Truely synchronous action of perception of 3 difrent time's in your mind, left for you to define ^^
So thats the MAIN REASON WHY (All moment's or thinking exist synchronously with one another within one point of perceptable time within are mind)
Thank you all for your time, in reading this (Injoy)
Hope Time Fly's Who Know's Why ^.^
