The problem with hindsight is that it's always 20/20.

We live in a continuum.

Past<............Now..........>future.

It's a bit like a bead sliding down a wire,leaving traces of it's vibrations behind it. It slides only in one direction-so it's pretty useless rehashing the past, except as a refference.

I look at the past only as a record, and to detect *patterns*. This means I better control the next instant others call "destiny". There IS no other entity responsible for how I move on that wire,or how I cross those of others.

There is ONLY the next instant,always. Until instants for us cease. Destiny is what YOU do in that instant,and all of them to come.

Even if you can go back in time you can't change a thing. What happens in the past is unchangeable.
It's like the question what happens if u kill your own grandfather.
Okay that question was cleared by Futurama.
I couldn't resist but Fry is his own grandfather.

Thank you Fearless and welcome to the forums by the way.

I agree, the good and the bad moments will always make for what one is independent of space in time (?). Adversities is what makes one stronger, though good is the enemy of the better. These may sound like just fancy slogans, but they arent that only necessarily. It all depends on how the individual would approach them and/or apply them.

When I wrote that post, not too long ago, but there is a fairly significant space in time (?) between then and now, I had less experience in manipulating these forces, so to speak, than I do today. You could say that Im looking for a pragmatical form of putting some experiences on hold so one can go and shape them to their respective desires at Will, independent of space in time(?). I know, this may sound a little confusing... probably because the way Im putting it, it is. I think I should go research some several matters before I make further posts on this regard. Im not just speaking of full-awareness, or maybe thats what it would be but unless I know it from experience it would be assuming, something I do not feel comfortable with doing, but I think that whether I like it or not, without specific study and practical experience that is what the mind would tend to do? Not implying that theyd all work the same way...but.

That reminded me of a Massive Attack song:


"I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,

Right here is where the end gon' start at,
Conflict, Contact, Combat,
Fighters stand where the land is marked at,
Settle the dispute about who the livest,
3 word answer,
Whoever survive this,
Only one of us can ride forever,
So you and I cant ride together,
Can't live or cant die together,
All we can do is collide together,
So I skillfully apply the pressure,
Won't stop until I'm forever... One!

A doorstep where death never come,
Spread across time til my time never done,
And I'm never done,
Walk tall, why ever run?
When they move if I ever come?
Bad man never fret the war, tell'em come
General we have the stock, the mad fire burn

I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images is reflect'in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,

Reign supreme in your U-N-I,
V-E-R-S-E with the sharpness,
Narrow row building no space for partners,
No space for drivers, no space for walkers,
No space regardless,
Your on my path then get off it,
Hardheaded and unresponsive,
Get they lives put on target with harshness,
Come with the canons sparkin' they darken,
Who am iI One man squadron,
Ma stir the fire this time that'd snatch your tomorrow,
The thousand yard stare that'll pierce through your armor,
You can get it on right now if you want to,
But when ya front lines get marched through,
I warned you,
You know who forever belong to,

I-ya, I-ya
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in mine, survive "


On a different note,Thanks to a post Reverend Svengali started Downstairs I think I may be closer to clarifying my bits-of-confusion.
