We all need to take great interest in the future because we will spend the rest of our life there.
Imagine a baseball thrown thru the air. A high speed camera takes pictures of it showing very great detail -- names, laces, etc. Someone shows you a picture -- can you tell what direction it is travelling? or even if it is moving? NO.
