Topic: The Future is Never Here

  1. #1

    The Future is Never Here

    That other thread is entirely too serious.

    ....the future is never here, the moment it arrives it\'s the present.

    Post all of your lighthearted observations of life, maxims, and wonderings here.

    When travelling from Sydney to Los Angeles, the future is yet to be, although you\'ve already seen it:

    You arrive half an hour before you leave, and it takes 15 hours to do it!

    \"I am vitally interested in the future because that is where you and I will spend the rest of our lives....\" or something like that, VERY inexact quote from \"Ed Wood\"...

    ...the present doesn\'t exist. The moment I think about it, it\'s in the past.

    Pick any \"precise\" moment in the future, say, six months from now. At every half-way point between now and then, call out \"I\'m half way to the future.\" Tell us when you get there. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    With apologies to Zeno.


    P.S. For your amusement.

    no wonder I\'m frustrated,

    ...everything I want to buy is in the future (I heard there\'s a new generation G5 coming out)
    ...in the present, I never have enough money to buy what I want
    ...the moment I buy something, it\'s passe. Leading to
    ...my thinking about the future again (I heard there\'s a G6 being developed)

    endless loop

    (sorry, a rough day at work. never enough time to finish everything)

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">But are those things the future, or are they the present for the few elite who already have them (those who are developing them)? Perhaps what is longed for is not the future, but a different present. [img]images/icons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    In 1948, George Orwell wrote 1984, a book about the future which is now our past, but which is also, in many ways, our present... and future.

    I think Einstein put it best when he stated that E = MC Hammer.

    Where are my pills?
