Past, present, future: the arrow of time.
Einstein and Hawking see the arrow as reversible; Prigogine insists that it’s one way, and I am entirely on the side of Prigogine.
I see the arrow as truncated for the damned: the stupid, the in-adaptable: the doomed.
That’s how I see the future: reserved for those capable for learning from experience, capable of appyling intelligence, imagination, to scenarios.
Use the old God metaphor: Judgment.
Heaven is having another chance; hell is failing to have earned one.
