The latter demand no special (or spatial) variety in their terms, while the former can only be sustained in so far as periods differ from one another in date or epoch as well as in distance. They must differ in temporal quality as well as in temporal quantity: only thus can they be in succession.

Further, it follows that the supposed superior reality of the present over the past and future belongs to it not as present (for the mere present is never experi­ enced, and the specious present is already past and future), but is due to its special relation to the active percipient. It is not that the present is more real than the past or future, but that perception is judged to be a more reliable source of knowledge than memory or anticipation, and again, that the specious present is avail­ able to us for action in a way in which further past and future are not; and since all the parts of crude time are equally real or unreal, I may go further and deny explicitly that past, present, and future belong to time itself as such; they must be ascribed to the relations of the individual ‘subject’ (corporeally and mentally) with the contents of time.

So far I have not sought to pass from ‘subjective’ duration, not even in the discussions of the ‘eternal now’ ; I have not attempted to escape from the relations of past, present, and future, which are ‘subjective’ in their reference.
