Saint Augustine of Hippo tied himself in knots over this one! He also
posited the notion that if reality (perhaps) we are standing still, so to
speak, while the future comes to us, through us, and into the past!

Elsewhere in his same book ("Confessions") he actually gives the
answer - time is an illusion - but appears not to have noticed he has
done so. There is something just a wee bit theosophical in this idea,
don't you think?
