It pervades our lives now as it did yesterday.
It pervades our lives as it did yesterday.
I think the word "pervades" suggests that it is happening now. Adding "now" would be redundant. Am I wrong?
Well, no. Pervades is more of a long term thing. Here's an example of a sentence that would work:
Hunger pervaded our lives that whole long post-war year.
It sounds strange for pervading to happen on a short time scale such as one day.
