There are many ways to think about the future. You can use your wishful thinking. You can be afraid. You can tell yourself it won’t even happen at all, or that it doesn’t matter if it does, because you won’t be around to see it, not in the long run at least. You can see it as a serial whose chapters will never end. You can make predictions. You can shrug it off. You can study the past in search of clues. You can make a career out of that. It won’t do you any good. You can think about the future all you want. The future doesn’t care.
