    I read this article and it struck me that we do live in the future, with our lives corresponding to events that may happen. the writer puts it far more elequently than i can so read him lol.

    but the question i ask is why do we look to the future soo much? is it an escape or is it a disease of a society in fear?

    Honestly, why would anyone wants to think about the future?

    Take away work, I wouldn't even think about the future. I'll go and climb the mountain instead.

    instead of thinking about how to learn about the future we should focus on how to improve our present
