the future is a distorted mirror, not a window.
what seems to be ahead of you is only in your mind as a distorted reflection of what is behind you... hopes, dreams, goals, anticipations, fear, etc... you seem to be aiming at something when in fact you are being driven by something.
humans are very poor guessers about the future in particulars, but not bad in gross generalities, and very good at making excuses as to why their predictions failed, mostly blaming anyone and everyone rather than admitting to being ignorant.
we are all sharing the universal poker game, we are all being dealt cards by the true nature of reality as the game progresses... you can notice what seem to be patterns and trends and sometimes your gamble pays off...sometimes it dont... just the way the game plays out.
The paradox about seeking to know the future by psychic means is that no one really wants to KNOW THE FUTURE but instead wants some advance info to ALTER the future in their own favor.
