Nothing and I mean nothing is going to happen that any of us could imagine or predict. We waste time wondering what is going to happen when in all reality the only thing that matters is today. Why sit around reading thread after thread about horrible things that are going to happen? It is all out of our control. Please live for the moment and not for what could and most likely isn't going to happen. Propaganda is a very strong thing and fear is even stronger. Trust.

True, but you have got to admit, Da Vinci was dead on.

Nonsense.

We see trends. If you don't pay attention and just "live for today" you will never see trends.
Trends tell us where we are at and where we are heading. If we know that, then we can prepare as best as we can.

Preparedness is not "out of our control".

I think it's natural. We would all like to have some inkling of what lies ahead and... despite all trend and current thought, it is most often the unexpected... the entirely unforeseen that makes the biggest difference.

If we had a crystal ball (for lack of a better term) to give us a forecast of what was surely to come, then we would do better at dealing with it, whatever it may be, once it arrived.

Birds often flock and change directions as if they were of one mind, by merely following the direction of the bird next to them... which is doing the exact same thing. The trend is set by the actions of one... or a very few and then, in a cascading event, all do exactly the same until it becomes a symphony of exacting movement. But it is the unexpected hawk diving out of the sun or the hunter upon the ground that makes the greatest impact.

The prophesy of the unexpected unknown, is what we seek so that while we are busy maintaining our social formation, we are not caught by surprise by something else.

It is, of course, quite futile.
