No, that's not clear at all. Since you and Liz are not in the same place and the
speed of light is the same in all inertial frames, there exist a whole range of Liz's
moments which may correspond to your moment depending on which moving frame is
arbitrarily chosen to determine simultaneity.
Yes. Presentism does not make sense with special relativity. "present" is an
indexical. No need and in fact no means, to reify the "present".
Do you somehow imagine that there is some gap in your time line that takes you out
of existence as I write this sentence? If there isn't then you must agree we do
share a common present moment...
But it is not uniquely defined.
A long time ago, in my childhood, I saw a movie with a friend. My friend found the
movie boring, and he felt like if it never ends: time was going slowly, for him. But
I loved that movie, and time was going very quickly for me. We discussed that after,
and I was troubled. Was we still at the same moment?
Well, with computationalism, that question just does not make any sense.
Being at the same event, same point of spacetime, should still make sense.
