a related question is: eternity which is outside of time and everlasting

is there a point where the past and future do not exist but all there is is the "eternal now"?

i actually think we get a sense of this playing hoops!! the past doesnt exist; the future has yet to come. all that exists is the moment and we forget about everything else when we are on the court


Now that's a trip!!!

Talks about the eternal soul that has "true" perfect knowledge before we are born. And when this soul is reincarnated into a body it's pefect knowledge is distorted by our 5 senses, but our mind attempts to re-learn what the soul knows in a distorted form to speak.
