Political grammar, political time.

“What could have been” for the past, “what may well be” for the present, “what will have been” for the future.

I think beyond our present.

I probably won’t get there, but I suspect many others will.

Perspective and prepositions.

We look from the past, with the present, towards the future.

This is not a representation.

To be present is to be aware of the process of presencing.

Everything that happens happens twice.

Everything that is present becomes so as a representation.

The shape of time.

Past and future do not meet present “head-on,” but rather loop into it at acute and oblique angles.

Just a moment.

The present vanishes between the nostalgia for the past and progress for the future.
