Here’s the most accurate watch in the universe. The I-Watch. It tells you the exact time whenever you look at it.
It is now. It always is.
After all, the only thing you can be indubitably sure of with 100% certainty is the fact that you, the self-aware subject, exist – in the now. Everything else is but a truth of convenience only.
I Exist… Now…
Once, Yushin was sitting under a tree when a woman with an infant approached him. The baby appeared to be unconscious, and the woman was in tears.
“Venerable sire” petitioned the distraught woman of the sage.
“Please, I beg you. Tell me if my child will survive.”
“Alas,” said the sage. “You ask me to show you the future. But I’m afraid I can’t do that.
If you so desire, I can show you the present when you want to see it.”
