==There is no Future==

Futures are funny things.  We plan for them, think about them, obsess over them, both individually and as families, groups, cities, even cultures.  We expect our futures to create a coherent narrative with our past.  Our media is saturated with experts, telling us how the future will unfold.  Even when they're telling us they don't understand what's happening, they do so from a position of expertise, a position that says, “Not to worry, chaps, our top minds are working on the problem.  We'll have this whole 'future’ thing wrapped up in no time.”
