What if we were to expand our sense of “now” to cover a span of 5, 10, or 20 years instead of today, this week, or, at best, this year? What if now was a lifetime? What if now was a century? We would still be standing in the present moment as the centerpoint of now, but, like in a camera lens, we would open the aperture so as to be able to photograph a larger field. If now consisted of this moment and the 20 or 40 years on either side of this moment, how might our perspective be different?
