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.
