Future Animals

Humans often think, “wouldn’t it be cool if we could travel through time?”

But in essence we already can! We can remember the past and envision the future. Most animals can learn, so they get a bit of time travel backwards, but humans are the best animals on the planet when it comes to the future. We can think about it, imagine it, write books about it, and even make movies about it. No other animal on this planet is as good at the future as humans. Which sucks, because we’re also complete trash at it. We actually have the ability to project ourselves into the future, but we don’t care about that. We care more about the past. We prefer to dwell in the past, even though we have no ability to change it. None whatsoever. We do have the ability to change the future, however. We just usually don’t pay enough attention to actually do it.
