Cumulative concept of time, 15
In 1895, in his novel, The Time Machine, H.G. Wells wrote, “There is no difference between time and any of the three dimensions of space except that our consciousness moves along it.”

Consciousness “moves” from the past to the future because consciousness is a kind of reflection.
To be conscious, one has to access its own states. But only the past states are available. Accessing one’s own now-here state is logically impossible, because that creates a metadox (paradox).

We can remember the past but not the future because the past is part of the future; the whole contains its parts, but not vice versa.
