THE FUTURE – Are We Planning For It, Or Is It Planning For Us?



The future is the indefinite time period after the present. Its arrival is considered inevitable due to the existence of time and the laws of physics. Due to the nature of the reality and the unavoidability of the future, everything that currently exists and will exist is temporary and will come to an end. The future and the concept of eternity have been major subjects of philosophy, religion, and science and defining them non-controversially has consistently eluded the greatest of minds. It is the opposite of the past, and is the time after the present. In the Occidental view, which uses a linear conception of time, the future is the portion of the projected time line that is anticipated to occur. In special relativity the future is considered to be absolute future or the future light cone. In physics, time is considered to be the fourth dimension of the universe.


Moving Forward.
After searching for a topic to add to this months menu of universally applicable exploration and discussion topics, this term came to mind which, when we really think about it, is one that we all really can and will get with, or have it get get with us, regardless of whether we like” it or not, so with that said, we will again keep it simple and brief and consider it is my good and useful deed for the day to get those of us who choose to be, thinking about the future as for whatever reason when it comes to time, the unsolved mystery for some of the worlds most adept wise men and great thinkers stems from the fact that past, present, and future time tenses are all matters of perception, meaning they each exist for us to the extent in which we think about and are conscious of them.

As a bonus, for those who wish to invest more thought into the concept, I advise you to click the Wikipedia link listed above for further study, along with the Wikipedia links regarding future timelines listed below as I guesstimate that the ever popular social media concept known as FB Timeline has something to do with a belief that the future for better or worse, is and will be as humans beings collectively create, communicate, and decide for it to be along with some help from above.

Some different perspectives to consider.
