I: I like that you like to live in the moment.
You: We are always living in a moment. What do you mean? You think you are not living in the moment?
I: True. But what I mean is that if I am doing things now for something that I expect to happen in a future moment, am I living in the moment? I am bit confused.
You: Of course you are still living in the moment. But you probably don’t feel like living in the moment.
I: But if I am not feeling to be living in the moment, am I truly living in the moment? Isn’t there a distinction between fact and fiction? Or is it that everything is fiction?
You: It can be that everything is a fiction.
I: No, our reality, the world outside us might not be a fiction. Pain might not be a fiction. Death might not be a fiction. I am not sure about pleasure though. Pleasures can be fictitious. I don’t know.. You seem to be living in the moment whereas I can’t really claim it like that. Or I should say I don’t feel to claim it like that. I tend to feel that I know what is ahead of me. At least I can have a good prediction of that based on my prior experience. But I am relying on my thinking mind and my collected knowledge and my instinct.
You: But don’t you ever wonder to start your day like you are a newborn baby?
I: I actually do.
You: Have you asked yourself why you have that desire to be reborn? Is it because you are burdened with your past?
I: It can be. But I’d say it’s not as simple as that.
You: I saw an episode of Black Mirror the other day. One thing kind of struck me. They were saying that memory is a way to trigger you to get back to your past to change your path. I have never thought it that way?
I: In a way it’s true. Especially if you are taking an action based on your memory. Isn’t it?
