Did you know: We are always living in the “past”

It takes 80 milliseconds for our brains to process information, so the ball that you see just dropped on the floor or the icy drink that you just sipped, has taken place 80 milliseconds before you realized, meaning we are not really “living now”. Now, that’s something that you may ignore. But can you ignore the fact that the stars that you see in the sky are probably non-existent today. Many of the stars situated thousand of light years away may have turned into a white dwarf or a black hole, and its the thousand year old light beam that started travelling from the star to the Earth has hit your eyeball today. The sky is a live canvas of history. Amazing, isn’t it.
