Unlike us, the Present is always at peace.
Unlike us, it doesn't resist change. As the philosopher Heraclitus noted, the Present rests by allowing itself to change, and changes by allowing itself to rest. Always at peace, it never holds still; its peace is unfathomable, and its changes are too fluid to notate. But the Present is also wild─untamable and unpredictable. So the nature of the Present is that of a wild peace.
That's one reason we turn to natural environments to feel present: because nature itself is at the same time utterly at peace and utterly wild.
