    Default Concept of Time

    How do you visualize events in the future that are not "today" or "tomorrow"?

    Some people would call it a 'daydream' I visualize it in my mind, in a fuzzy kinda way.

    :edit: I get very caught up in it and it becomes a narrative, I get carried away by the story.

    Things that're in the future are attached to a tangled web of strings of possibilities that originate from today. Think of hundreds of pieces of string or yarn or whotever... now tangle them into a large ball that makes pretty much no sense whotsoever. Now have some of those strings leading to the past, where the stuff they set in motion originated, and have some go into the future where their effects may be felt. Yeu have control of them at the moment, and can adjust or change them, buuuuuuut trying to make sense of the knotted ball of wires can make it seem like either there's no way to change it, that it's too much effort to change, or yeu may think yeu found the right one but yeu did something that affected something else instead. Also, trying to change anything, such as untangling one wire yeu want to get at desperately badly, usually means having to pull half the others apart to get at it, and usually changes something else along the way yeu didn't mean to.

    And there yeu go. Past, present, and future. =3

    I realized that things don't really seem REAL to me until they're going to happen today or tomorrow. Like, I can conceptualize it, but on some level I don't really believe it will actually happen.

    ... just a vague vision or hint, maybe in some kind of symbolic kind of act or scenario i see (i.e. not a very detailed one), or i envision a way i myself could be possibly (and how others are being receptive to it). then i try to adjust for it...

    i rarely do this though. kind of a one day at a time type of person.

    I have a good imagination. It tends to be too specific though and doesn't account for everything that may happen.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    Like a stereogram.

    It's there, I just have to not think about it too hard.
