Thanks for that. I have what some people would call, "funny ideas" but they're mine, and I wouldn't be here if I didn't think they were possible. Like the word future, to me the future doesn't exist, it's just a myriad of possibilities, only one of which counts, and that's the one that actually happens, but when it does it's not the future anymore, it's the now. That's why religion for me is a complete nonsense, it promises a future (either good or bad, depending) and ignores the here and now, the only thing we have any control over. We can learn from the past, but it's gone, and the future doesn't exist, so what else is there? The here and now.
