There are two major philosophical theories on the nature of time: presentism and eternalism. Presentism postulates that only the present is real, while the past is a configuration that once existed, and the future is undetermined. On the other hand, eternalism proposes that the past and future are equally real as the present, and there is nothing special about the present.
