There is a tiny tidbit of knowledge I want to let you in on. Though a well-established fact about the future, it is oft forgotten. It is this: Nobody knows it. Nobody has seen it. Nobody has been there. It is the one thing consistently built upon uncertainty. I doubt that’s ever gonna change. Beautiful, I think.
I'm fascinated by ideology. Seems to me, that every time I fall in love with a set piece of rules to live by and reflect upon, a timer begins. When said timer runs out, could be minutes, could be years, cracks appear, and inevitably all the fresh pillars crumble, leaving only a few stones left for the next foundation to be built.
To me, the world keeps expanding in complexity the older I get. A consequence of ongoing curiosity, I guess. And so I have very little to share in terms of what the future should look like. I only know what it shouldn’t look like. And so that’s what I write.
