Though Jalees Rehman's article is thought-provoking, the ultimate "Zen question" is as follows:
How exactly are human beings (and other mammals) able to open and close their hands/paws to make fists or to make specific movements? This ability seems to transcend the "3-second rule" - as it happens seemingly instantaneously. In fact, oftentimes the movement of limbs appears to be independent of any thought process or reactive thought activity.
And of course, there really is no such thing as "NOW" - because Life and Living are processes in constant flux. - -"The Now" is only ever "The Soon-to-be Future" or "The Very-Recent Past"
