No future rolling out of the moment we call now

After-life is a name we give to an experience of a certain kind that our mind goes through here.In fact, all future is nothing but an experience we undertake here and now. There is no such thing as future rolling out from the moment we call now. Its rolled into it, in a circular experience of then, now and hereafter. "Every moment is eternally present."

The desire for immortality too is an experience confined to how our mind chooses to feel about the totality of existence and shaping the moment present the way it likes. The concept of future as a roll of cloth unwinding from the present moment into a space we call future is untenable in the light of findings of the modern science as well as the creative revelations of religiously inspired people called saints and prophets.
