Predict or live?

Will the world end in fire?

Or maybe ice?

We will never know the uncertain

So why do we try and predict it?


  • Doggerel Dave

    Because if, just if we are able to do something about the immediate future that's worth a prediction, no?

    Great shortie, PL. I guess we wonder about the future the same way we ask "why", the same way we wonder where we are coming from, and the same way we want to know how it works. We humans seem to be inquisitive by nature.

  • Goldfinch60

    Good one, we all wonder what the future of the world will be.
