Has anyone ever told you to stop living in the past? People say this to one another all the time, but the thing is we can't stop living in the past. To be clear, I'm not talking about pulling out a pair of torn up jeans and a leather jacket for a night out, but rather, the very way we perceive the world. What you know as now is actually the world as it was about 80 milliseconds ago, about 0.08 seconds.
