Knowing the Future

It is difficult - why difficult, it is impossible -  to relate to  what  zodiac signs or astrology or chiromancy or such like say. In addition, I hold a belief that if we can know future, the only reason we should know it is to be able to change it*.

But then, we cannot change one thing without changing others. Because, if we attempt to change only those things that we can know or imagine, the consequences will be as sorry as they were in Bruce Almighty when Jim Carrey tries playing God. Knowing future thus will not let us prepare well enough to change it. On the contrary, it will take away the fun of living it.

As a corollary, it appears there is no point knowing future.

PS: * like Terminator series

hi mr vijay, nice blog there.
hmm.... maybe knowing the future does nothing to change it but it helps to keep us happy, by knowing that something good is in store for us.

Wish I was an optimist like you. In my future there is something bad too.

But Keep hoping. As the Pope Said - hope springs eternal in human breast.

And thanks for dropping by and your kind words.

Cheers

Small observation on marriage in my latest post. But that would offer little help. And honestly, any advice would offer little help. Suffice it to say that Astrology belongs to the same category.

thanks
