Temporal Becoming and the role of records

I am considering a model of temporal becoming which provides a meaningful description of passage but also incorporates the requirements of modern physics. This view, localised temporal becoming, combines presentism and eternalism, allowing it to incorporate the motivations behind both theories. Based on this, I will further develop the resources available to the presentist perspective under this model and look at how records are a key part of our understanding of time. I argue they are the basis for the metaphysical difference between the past and the future.
