Re: The past
I think that before we can truly understand the future, we need a clear understanding of the past. You never know what's ahead, so it helps to know what's behind you. You ever wonder what happened to certain civilizations (i.e. the Mayans or the Neanerthals), well maybe if we fully understood why they dropped off the face of the Earth, we ourselves could avoid dropping off the face of the Earth. The better we understand the past, the more ready we are to face the impact that the future is bringing. The whole world is not obsessing over the past, in fact, only historians obsess over the past, the past is vital to future success though, so we can't just forget about it and look straight forward.
