Magnetically levitating cars, interstellar travels, extraterrestrial cultures, AI or apocalyptic scenarios lashed by wars, endemic diseases, natural disasters or catastrophes caused by humans: science fiction novels or movies had always imagined the future for us, postponing periodically the timing (at first 1984, then 2000, 2012, 2020 and 2040 …) and taking it quite far from the ‘present’, in order to make plausible scenarios that are usually very different from those we are used to.
The intellect, the science and the empirical observation teach us how future, present, and past are not divided: they are not separable elements of the space-time dimension, for which we are just a point of observation and an infinitesimal part of a bigger picture with mostly unknown rules.
