The elusive 'now'

We really cannot talk of 'now'. The moment we start speaking, the moment has already passed away.  So we'd be talking of 'was' not of 'now'!  Cannot speak of the future because it is not yet 'now'.  Therefore can honestly speak only of the past (was) and probably of the future (will be)... but never of the present now.

No wonder people advice to 'live in the present' ... gather that's the best we could do.

Or you may just get on with whatever you were doing, dismissing all this as mere play of words! Even then you'd be doing exactly what the statement means!
