This is also why when you change one thing about yourself that is a real change you have changed yourself for all time. The older person no longer exists and if you were to leave this universe in the current condition it would be as if that older person never existed at all.
Makes sense, but if we changed something about ourself, how is that possible in one moment in time? That would imply that there's a past and present. I'll choose to ignore it for now, no headaches today.
*EDIT* - okay, I lied; still thinking about it. I get what you're saying. If you change, the old you ceases to exist; and it's as if he/she never existed at all.
I've also been playing around with the idea that maybe all past is made up in our head, all our memories. All of it, 10 years ago, or 2 seconds ago. In this out there theory, it really is only one moment, and the feeling of moving forward and looking back is an illusion created by our brain. And the future will never happen, another illusion. Ok, now I'm serious, no more today, I feel a headache coming on...
