Imo future and past means time, and light cones, etc.
If there is no flow of time, there is no past, and
no future.

But I may be wrong. Because, at this level, as
pointed out long ago by Finkelstein it is
difficult to distinguish between subject and
object. So it is possible a self-interaction
(self-reference!) governed by some internal
parameter, instead of time.

This reminds me of an unknown italian poet (XVIII sec.)
who wrote: "Era il tempo che il tempo ancor nun era tempo".
Unfortunately this poet is so little known that I also
forgot his name! Anyway my poor translation is:
"Once upon a time the time wasn't yet time."

Finkelstein: "The Physics of Logic" [in "Paradigms and
Paradoxes", ed. R. G. Colodny, 1971, pag. 60]:
 "There is, to be sure, a genuine problem in the phenomenon
of quantum measurement, but I will not discuss it here. It
concerns *introspective* systems, were subject = object so
that the basic conception of a single subject observing an
ensemble of objects must be modified."
