Well, here we are. Here we are right now. Not then, but now. Are we running away from now? Or are we letting now just happen? Are you aware that now just happened? Or...now.
Once you realize now just happened it becomes a then. Further demonstrating my theory of "time" moving "backwards" We are at least experientially living in the past. So our memories...whatever they might include...are responsible for our evolution and/or development as an individual. This evolution can be looked at in reverse...so our "time" is just as representative of the path leading towards our birth...our mind interprets the time line "backwards" just as our optic lense projects the "backwards" image upon our retinas only to be translated by our brain as a right side up object.
I guess what I'm trying to say is: look at all sides of the perspective. All sides.
