Q: If not now, when?
A: I suppose, strictly in terms of possible times, putting aside the physics stuff that is ordinarily a bit outside my realm of expertise, and is even more so now due to a lack of sleep scrambling my brain, about how time may not really exist, or at least I think that is a thing, I have lost my grip on more tangible reality due to insomnia, much less faintly recalled concepts I read about at some point in time (not now, so in keeping with your question), if now is not when, that leaves two possibilities. Before now, or after now. Unless it is a thing that may or may not happen, like sleep, in which case never is an option…but is never really a time? Is this about time? Does time exist? Yes, yes it does, because if there was no time then it would not be ungodly early and I would not be composing such fully incoherent run-on sentences…or maybe if time didn’t exist it would forever be early and midday and late all at once always, which is a bit what being perpetually awake is like anyway, oh my god I am physics I have broken through the constraints of linear time through my crappy superpower of sleeplessness, I am eternity, bow down before me, you lesser well-rested beings!
Does that answer your question? My guess is no, but I am willing to admit I am not really the best judge of things that aren’t timeless infinities since I have realized I am physics.
