I want to understand what time is. Does it stretch out like an elastic band as Heidegger supposed? Do I bring my memories to my future projects and weave a present moment? 

What does identity have to do with time? Does causation give us the perception of the arrow of time? I am perplexed and yet I feel that after a year or more of immersing myself in this the answer is within my grasp.

Calling flow of time an “illusion”, though, is somewhat misleading; for an illusion there needs to be 3 points: source, distortion, and target.
Time seems more to be a notable part of the in-the-moment perception. (see, e.g., http://hhell.tk/consciousnesslevels.png for a sort-of venn-like visualization of it).
However, making conclusions from that fact for decisions is rather hard, as at the point of in-the-moment perception decisions are merely yet another “notable part”.
(and, another weird and funny part of it is building a model of a cognitive mechanism that could make all the conclusions above. Much work to do…)

What do our names have to do with time? Is Identity related to time?
