I did not disagree, just simply tried to express myself in own words to see if it fits. And with "maybe" I left the statement open to other possibilities, so that anyone can draw whatever conclusions they want.
How on earth can anyone discuss with a message with so many "Maybe"? You have done nothing but supporting my example is expressing an uncertainty.
It depends on the individual how he sees the present time. If I refer to these 1,000 years as the time I was waiting for I could say it is the present time. Time can be anything; a minute, an hour or a day. It is up to me to decide how big of a piece of time I am refering to. And, right you are, that no one would refer to 1,000 years as present, because we don't live that long, but I could say that a week is present because I was waiting for this particular week to happen.
Those who embrace such supposition as yours can never explain why Yesterday is past time, because they don't know how one is aware of time. They think one has no present time in oneself, so one would "refer to present time as" out there.
We do not have present time in self, because we exist within it.
I believe Future Tense, an action, can be within present time, it depends to what and how big a part of time you are referring to; a week or a month.
...verb that indicates the time, such as past, present, or future, as well as whether the action or state is continued or completed.
The more I read, the more I am sure you don't know what is tense. The word "Tense" comes from Latin 'tempus', meaning time. So, Future Tense is not "an action". You believe wrong.
Tense specifies whether the verb refers to action in the past, present, or future...
I said Future Tense action, not being one.
I think I tried to explain that "today" and 'day' refer to different times not that they are different. Anyway, before I must have understood what I ment, but I can't make sense of this anymore.
Do you really believe this yourself? "Today" is not the 'day'?
If I say "John is a strange guy", would you say in a similar way that there is John and there is a guy that is strange?
If future time can exist within present, as in; in two hours it will be future time and that happens within the day that someone would clasify as present then that would overlap if it can be put that way.
Are you telling me, you don't agree to my conclusion that the present is overlapped with the future?
I tend to rush myself all the time without thoroughly thinking things over, something like; million thoughts a minute, and of course it leads to confusion. And, Mr. Shun, relax and enjoy the summer!
