All events without exception happen in the present moment. The present
moment is the only locus of actual reality in which anything can happen.
Of course those events can happen with different clock times according to
relativistic conditions in different frames, but they always happen in the
lt is very strange to me how no one seems to understand what I'm even
saying with respect to two kinds of time, irrespective of whether they
agree or not. I have to think more about what the reason for this cultural
mental block is. Something very strange going on here to say the least!
And of course Einstein did NOT prove that "self-evident truth was
completely wrong" in any general sense, not in anyone's wildest dreams. He
demonstrated only that a particular interpretation based logically on
NON-relativistic daily experience was incomplete and needed to be extended.
