Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

We don't have the future.


We have now; What is inside of now.

Why the 'of' in the middle?

Is now a physical space or an abstract concept or a state of mind or a combination of these

I don't think that now can be conceived by the intellect so...I would lean towards an abstract concept and a state of mind.

In general Now refers to the present.

As now refers to the present then it can most definitely be conceived by the intellect as a specific point in spacetime
But it can not be an abstract concept less it is conceived by the intellect for that is where all concepts originate from

Now is One Everything and Nothing Simultaneously.

To be inside now would imply there is an outside. . now is indivisible. There is no inbetween now and now.

All of the responses here are GREAT. When we approach an aspect of time we breach what we consider the fourth dimension for human beings.

At that point everything is objective. This is where, I believe, our state of being becomes our authoritative point of reference.

Remember “you” (figure of speech only) are not the “I-thought”, you are that which is aware of the “I-thought” and everything else.. “You” are here now, as always, unlimited by form, changeless. (Ultimately, you cannot be identified by any label.)

In essence,you don’t have any thing you are every thing which is not a thing. 🙊🙉🙈
