The Future

We can make some guesses about what will one day happen based on the present and the past, but we can never be fully sure. Quantum mechanics teaches us that the future is really just a big toss of the dice. Even the gods, with their infinite knowledge, don't really know what's coming. Otherwise they wouldn't be trying to influence our actions so damn much.

Hopefully some day things will be better than they are now. But the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which teaches us that disorder is the ultimate goal of the universe, doesn't provide us with much hope. We can only struggle along as best we can, hoping that somehow we can have a few moments of joy in the bleakness of life.
