Would I be right in saying that by the time our brain registers now it has become the past? Therefore now only exists as a memory............... []

Now is gift.. that's why it is called the present.. Past is nothing but a memory.. So everything in your memory is past. And the future is a mystery.. Once you unravel that future it becomes the past..Now we should all learn from Master Shifu, like the Dragon warrior.. Make everyday a gift.. So that Now will be the Present.

Mr. Data, you cannot really put NOW in an equation, for now cannot be put into a time frame, or if you put it in a timeframe, that frame would be moving at a constant speed. For example when I say "NOW" it will be past.

so if we would force it into an equation, should it look like this?(past + now) * (future - now)for the "past" is being added by every "now" that passed, while the "future" is being subtracted by the "now" which is a constant.Please correct my equation.

shouldn't you add an increment to now to make the equation as current as possible? for if we leave the increment to now, the answer to your equation would be a bit of a past.

I'm hard-wired but often slow By increment, you mean by what exactly? I assume you mean a time as increasing number which is evaluated? An incremental step in time, is a change in time, so denote that as ▲t = t_{2}-t_{1}. ''for if we leave the increment to now, the answer to your equation would be a bit of a past.''True. All measurements, are again, measured in the present, but that measurement is part of the past.''how do you phrase an infinite incrementation to a certain value. that would probably be the key to calculating now if we are to put it into an equation or a formula.''What did you have in mind? I am not entirely sure if I understand you correctly, but any infinity minus a finite numbert_{1} - ∞ = ∞keep in mind, infinity is not a number.Is this what you had in mind, or something else?
