It’s a tautology.

What incredible luck that we just happen to be here to witness this historic moment!

^^^LOL
So really this is just a variation of the saying ” today is the first day of the rest of your life.”
Not always. If you’re a procrastinator then tomorrow would the first day of the rest of your life.

@bookish1 Do you prefer linear time?

@tups : In what context? Where did that question even come from? I just think this is a trite statement that is pretending to be profound, but really is not.

Ten million insurance agents are about to lose their jobs, so it’s not a total loss.

@bookish1 I don’t think this is a profound statement myself. Profound is what you make it.

@Pachyderm_In_The_Room How do you mean that?

There is continuity from one moment to the next and the past is linked to the future.

@flutherother Are you certain of that?

According to my mom and her beloved Jack Van Impe, it’s the end of everything we’ve ever known. Crazy.

@tups, just a bad joke.

@tups That has been my experience. Take this thread for example.
