AGnosis*
It is impossible to comprehend how strong is the illusion of continuous perception and how sharp the line of awareness of reality is between the past which goes away beyond retrieve and the future which comes from the unknown. There is nothing to rely on in a stream that has no streambed. The recollection of the past and the anticipation of the future are no more than the current perception.

The surrounding nonexistence is the opposite of everything that can be associated with it. The gravity of one's own existence inevitably deflects the direction of attention beyond the moment of the perceived reality. Like a pendulum that naturally returns to the resting state of the vertical plumb without leaving the rest line formed by the weight-set tension, the dynamics of the natural extension of perception does not reproduce the upcoming and the subsequent with its current reality. However, it does not make pointless the experience of the "transmutation" of unidirectional perception into a complex non-momentary awareness of the surrounding reality's non-existence.
