Found in my fortune cookie at the Orient Express last night:

"No one can walk backward into the future".

Is this true?

I guess they are saying you can't change the past. Or are they?

I think they're saying that dwelling on the past (looking back) hinders one's ability to move forward. (Into the future)

could it be as simple as something like:
if you don't face up to the future, you'll never see it when it hits you?

Indeed it could.

To take it a step farther:

If you approach the future with open eyes and don't try to deny anything you encounter, it will be worlds easier to accept it all as it happens.

"you'll never see it when it hits you"

Like a 2x4 to the back of the head.  :mad2:

something like that  :lol:
or, perhaps more appropriately, a "spiritual" 2x4 to the back of the "spiritual" head.  Heh.

Pay attention to the "backward" word, it has an opposite meaning. The message really is:
"Don't hold on to the past"
:wink:

Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

I think of a time line...
we are walking from A to B (etc) ...
if you were walking backwards in to the future, you would still go 'forward' from A to B ... ? :wink:

So, the past can not be changed?
If I go back in time, I recreate what was, as the present, making what was, happen two times, one after the other, in a linear fashion, yet unlinearly, what was, lets say a smell, was the very same smell? ...

ah well.. anyways..

We are time travelers right now! :wink:


:confused: :thumbup:
