the mind + 4D-spacetime = the experience of the unfolding of the events moment by moment in the actual moment by an observer

But, the past is gone and the future isn't there yet, in our experience. Only the actual moment exists and is real. We observe the past, but we are in the present moment, and that's all there is to our conscious experience. Even when you remember something from the past, it pops up in the present. Because the present is all there is (to minds).

Memory isn't a conscious experience? It's an unconscious experience?

The classic story of how to defeat an superior alien AI robot.

Write P.T.O. on both sides of a piece of paper and hand it to him.

 

You need to break out of the viscous circle your thinking has got you into.

I am minded to reinforce Eise's post, but realise that this is Philosophy.

Or to observe that Penrose, in his later years, endorses an explanation of quantum mechanics that involves the mind in the quantum process and negates the idea of past, presebnt and future as separate disjoint entities.

Space has Euclidian geometry. Spacetime does not.

"Presentism' is a local foliation of the block universe.

IOW an interpretation of a model for GR.
