What is now? Now is the past but the past is the past which is not now.

So if now is here but at same time is the past, then what is the present?

So technically now does not exist for now is the past because now is a time at a certain moment, but time is unstoppable and is ever moving, so what is Now is now the Past.

Quite simple really.

That's unnecessarily intricate, and the fact that you over-explained it makes it seem like you're just trying to sound smart.

'Now' is simply a pointer reference to indicate the current moment. It isn't the actual moment itself.

The value "now" is forever pointing to a new instance of a moment and is always valid to describe the current moment. The "now" pointer is not to be confused with pointers that point to moments that have occurred before the current moment which are considered the past. Common reference pointers for the past include "yesterday" or "few hours ago".

It's all relative. The specificities...specifics...errrr, the specific moment you are referring to has no concrete basis.

You can refer to this very microsecond. Or you could be referring to an eon of time.

I would consider those events instead of moments. Events are variable amount of time in which something happens. If nothing happens, then it's considered a null event (event without action).

I see where that can come into play.

For instance, you can say "Now, we are in the Information Age." And you're referring not referring to this very second but to what is essentially a prolonged event that has lasted at least 30 years already and is set to last for quite some time to come.

Well the pointer "now" is pointing a point that exists inside the parameter that is designated as the "Information Age".
