To see into the future...

If you were given the chance to see into the future, would you do it? Remember that you could not go back in time, once you have seen it, it cannot be undone. Under what circumstances would you like to see into the future, or are you content to live life as it comes?

If I were given the chance to see the future, I will not take the opportunity. The burden of knowing in advance would be very great. Also, advance knowledge will make for a lousy life. No more excitement, only the burden. On the other hand, however, I will not be content with just accepting what comes everyday. I will try to anticipate the future, and do something to hasten certain events I want to happen and prevent things that I don't want to happen. Then I will accept what life will eventually offer, AFTER the struggle.

I agree, there would be no surprises, and therefore no excitement to life.

i think i am scared what the future is. i mean, i am already comfortable with as how things are. i might not going to like what i see. for example, i might see accidents for my love ones, or sickness in the family, things like that. because, if we see the future, we cannot filter the good or the bad things right? we would be able to see both. so, i would prefer not to see the future. =)

This would be my fear as well, I would not want to see all the bad things that the future might hold.

I would rather choose not to see the future ahead of time than expected because if it happens there'll be no more adventures and fun as I live my life since I already have an idea on what's gonna happen to me. I think it would be boring as well. The good thing about living your life as it is day to day is that you'll never know what'sonna happen so if obstacles come your ay surely you'll find ways to resolve it and in doing so you'll learn something from that experience...May it be bad or good and I'm sure this experiences will help you become a better person in the future. Aside from that, you'll have no regrets or "what ifs" since it was your choice to live that way.... :)

I totally agree with your comment about regrets. I never thought about it from that perspective before.
