If you could look into the future, would you want to know how things turn out?
Specifically, in your life, in the world around you, etc.
Of course I would. I would see what horses were going to win tomorrow and then bet on them all
I would not. I think about times when I or others have gotten the inside on something soon to happen...it makes you shirk responsibility or feel the need to not do something. If we're looking to the future, this could be troublesome simply because you don't know how the possibility of doing less (and even striving harder to prevent something) will cost you in other pertinent and valuable ways.
Well, I think I wouldn't like to know how things turn out, because that would take the fun out of things, I wouldn't have something to really look forward to, because I already knew it was going down, probably I would get bored waiting for it and if something awful was going to happen, that would make me feel bad and would not let me enjoy the rest of my life.
No ....I,m Happy with the present...besides if I knew what was coming it would spoil the suprise or dismay LOL...great question..thanks for asking
I would have missed out on a lot in life if I could have seen the struggles I would have to go through. For example, most of us would be afraid to have children, get married, take a trip overseas, etc. if we could see the difficulties we might encounter along the way--even knowing it all works out in the end.
If we could see the future, we would be less likely to enjoy the present moment and would always be looking ahead instead.
I probably would want to know and then afterwards feel regret that I chose to find out.
Yes, maybe. Just a quick, few second peek at time 20 years from now. Am I still here, is my husband, are my kids healthy. No wait - on second thought if the news was not good for my family--I would freak out.. ...So after pondering, now I don't think so.
But if you were to see what was going to happen, would that be what was going to happen before or after you looked? What if you looking at your future alters your future. It seems pretty likely, unless you were meant to look at your future. Then would your future vary whether or not you looked at it? Or is this a fate-driven vehicle where no change is allowed?
If my future would change, then certainly I would look in hopes of changing it for the better. If my future could not be changed, then I would not look. Why waste a good surprise, in either case?
Yes. If I knew what is going to happen in the future then I can make definite plans for whatever that future is. If it is good then I will be happy today because my future is bright. If the future is bad then I will have time to plan and create strategies in preparation to either evade the ba incident or to prepare myself to face such.
I'd rather not.
If I learned that I'd be successful, in effect, I'd be lazy. Why work hard? I'd be successful anyway.
If I am not. I'd lose motivation. Persevering won't make sense.
nope! i think life is more fun when it is full of surprises!

I thought...Now what's supposed to happen then? (Thinking of what would happen after Dec. 20, 2012) Then...it occurred to me what it meant. How about you are you looking forward to the future...or are you happy the way...

Can someone explain why or what causes constant misfortune in one's life?I know someone who seems to always have to struggle. Anytime something is about to go right, it goes severely wrong. He does nothing to deserve it...
