The elusive word called "now."

"Now" is the indistinct period of time between past and future, but it can't be pinned down. When you say "now" its already in the past. The same thing happens to the second hand on a clock. When you say ten seconds past one, it's already 12 or thirteen.

Posting high is a bad idea.
"Now" is one of the more specific references we use to quantify an event, it is much more specific than say, yesterday, or tomorrow, and probably the most specific unless you get into specific times.
I have a radical suggestion.

Past, present and future are all the same thing.
I understand the concept of the present. No offense, but this sounds stereotypically stoner.
