It makes me think about destiny. Is everything predestined or do we create it? Is the future a blank slate or is it already there just waiting for us to catch up to it. If so, do you get an eraser, can you edit the future?
If time travel were a possibility, even if only to the past, if you altered the past, you alter the future and that would mean the future is already there. Predestined. Or is it? This is the confusing part.
There are things I would change in my past if I could, but only if I knew what the outcome would be if those changes were made, because there are things I do not want to change from my past as well. If you alter one you may alter the other. I am obviously not a gambler. I want to know the odds.
It is all speculation. IFs. As my gramps would say ‘if the dog hadn't stopped to poop (excrete) he would have caught the rabbit.’ Choices we made, bad or good, are our past. Choices are all we have. Choices we make today will become the past and perhaps affect our future...unless it is already there, just waiting for us?
