The present exists, and the past and the future are extrapolated. But there is a reason why history books exist or people wrote down there history
and story's. Because even the past will one day be nothing but dust. And the future? Well people always try to guess what the future will bring,
from people throwing chicken bones on the dirt to astrological signs, to the daily news and stock market.
How many people if you went back to 2017, and you told them that in a few short years they will be wearing diapers on there faces because the TV said
so? How many would believe you, if you told them there future? Not many right.
But hey, the present exists. And the future is extrapolated. The human mind likes to know were it will be, a goal, a future. Anything from next job,
to house, and family to fortune and the weather. All are extrapolations on the future by people. And all are merely extrapolations that the human
mind makes, mostly based on what it knows, its history.
And well? Here we are today, in the future of the peoples of the year 2017. So ya. Time is merely a measurement, even in the human mind. I think if
you were to step outside all of it? It would be like looking at a map of a city. You know were everything is and were everybody is going.
And offcourse? There is always those things which can not be conceived of that really shift and move the times were they will. Just like nobody in
2017 thought they would be walking around chewing on moist cloth all day, looking like really crappy ninjas Who knows what the future brings.
For the most part. I think and it seems to be that time is merely a form and unit of measurement. I mean the planets and the sun and the galaxy and
the universe is there. And there is nothing we can do about them. So were all just little tiny fish in a vast ocean just trying to watch and be
aware of our surroundings.
And one of the tools and methods we do that is a little thing called time.
