Everything We See is Past
Whitehead and the Light Cone Diagram
Everything we see is past, the future is open,
no two people have the same actual world, but
we can share feelings and dreams. We do it all the time.
The future is open. Becoming is a creative advance into novelty. At any given moment our actual worlds are peculiar to our particular standpoint. In Whitehead's words:
Don’t Let Them Tell You You’re Not at the Center of the Universe
