Can we know anything for sure? We can.

Agabus

We certainly know and we know we know. Because we don't lie down in front of transports and say we are dreaming. Neither do we call our dreams our real life.

Present - Existing or occurring now. Past- Something that occured that is not in the present. Future- Something that ha...
