present is a function that consumes a stream of future and outputs a stream of past
unfortunately most of us are stuck with the imperative implementation
@cwebber wow, this is something fascinating about the way you have put it; I've been thinking about it, and I find this idea very inspiring. The idea of thinking about time in this way - of a process of transforming future into past rather than making future out of past.
This is quite beautiful.
@cwebber I am getting a stack overflow because the function call consumed all the memory, trying to push all the futures on the stack 😶 Please help.
@cwebber so the future is all the unevaluated thunks that sprang into existence at the beginning of time?
