“I am told that the present, the specious present of the psychologists, lasts from a few seconds to a minute fraction of a second that can be the duration of the history of the universe. In other words, there is no such history, just as a man has no life; not even one of his nights exists; each moment we live exists, but not their imaginary combination.”
from “A New Refutation of Time,” pg. 223.
