Dave Pollard wrote thought-provokingly of the "Now Time”, a multidimensional recursive eternal present familiar to aboriginal cultures the world over, and recalling Friedrich Nietzche's desire to be a "yes-sayer" to each moment.

This recalls Camus' celebration of Sisyphus starting afresh each day and more recently, Eckhart Tolle's "power of now".

  • One of the dangers of emotional life, notes The School of Life, is that we find that we don't feel 'in the moment': we're at a funeral, but we don't feel sad. We're making love, but our minds are elsewhere. It's our birthday, but we're not jolly. Why is it sometimes so hard for our true inner feelings to keep pace with events in the outer world?

To situate meaning is not to own physical things, or to control flows. Its a dynamic concept that recognises the constant fluidity of the evolutionary potential of the present - Dave Snowden http://www.cognitive-edge.com/blogs/dave/2010/03/situated_meaning_a_ref…

Quote 2733

The modern hero, the modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be atoned, cannot - indeed must not - wait for his community to cast off its slough of pride, fear, and rationalized avarice and sanctified misunderstanding. 'Live', Nietzsche says, 'as though the day was here.' It is not society that is to guide and save the hero, but precisely the reverse. And so every one of us shares the supreme ordeal - carries the cross of the redeemer - not in the bright moments of his tribe's great victories but in the silences of his personal despair - Joseph Campbell, in The Hero with a Thousand Faces.
