Think about how we view the future. How do we predict things?
We predict things by looking backwards at the past, analyzing the past then we flip the past over to the future, using “now” as the pivot point and say, “The future will be like the past was”.
Sometimes this works. We can take our view of the past from a physics standpoint, flip it over the “now” so that it extends forward into the future instead of backwards into the past and it’s quite likely that the rules that once applied when looking backwards will *also* apply looking forwards.
Yet it doesn’t work with everything or even most things.
