Imagine a baseball thrown thru the air. A high speed camera takes pictures of it showing very great detail -- names, laces, etc. Someone shows you a picture -- can you tell what direction it is travelling? or even if it is moving? NO.

In times of high change, it's good to know a little bit about the PAST to understand the present freeze frame of the NOW and project to some degree of accuracy where we are GOING (The Future).

I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.
  View quote | White, William Allen quotes
