    Threedee Shepherd: One case is a women in a car accident who afterwards has NO memory (due to the regions irreversibly injured). NO memory of past and immediate short-term memory of only about 2 minutes. If you tell her a three minute joke, she has already forgotten the start when you get to the punch line. She is only and entirely in NOW
    Threedee Shepherd: We have talked much of letting go and being in the NOW. I would not want to be in her NOW
    Stim Morane: I would think it’s a pretty impoverished “now”, not an intensified one … at least with respect to the dimensions that figure in “right action”.
    Threedee Shepherd: so do I. And that leads me to ponder on the broader sense of NOW, even in the 9-sec
    Stim Morane: Yes.
    doug Sosa: seems to me that “here and now” does not mean this place or this clock moment. It is an invitation to take in, be in flow with, more.
    Threedee Shepherd: As I try to observe the NOW of existance as it is, during a 9-sec, I am led to something more complex than “what is imposing” on my senses at this instant. I find that NOW is a complexity of details of various sorts, including a was time and will be time, just as examples
    Stim Morane: oh yes, there are many such details.
    Stim Morane: The main point of contemplative practice is certainly not to be reduced to the clock-time “now”.
