"I have seen the future and it will be..."
Well? Tell me? Don't just leave me hanging like that!
A wise man once said that the future doesn't exist. It's not real. There is only this moment. Right now.
So why all this hype over the future? Why has so much been written, done or said about it?
The future equals hope.
There is so much potential wrapped up in all our ideas about the future. Our desire for something better. Our fear of something worse.
But the future never comes.
If you feel pain, you're gonna feel it right now. If you're gonna have any pleasure in life it'll be at this moment.
I'm not telling you anything you don't know, or anything you haven't heard before. There is nothing new under the sun. But sometimes it's a good idea just to be reminded of some things.
Planning for future events is one of the things that distinguishes the human species from most of the other creatures on this pale blue dot of ours. So there is that. But life has a way of fucking up even the most well laid plans.
So once more into the breech dear friends, once more...
