Predicting the future from the past - Is it possible?
« on: May 02, 2017, 09:15:53 PM »
I'm interested in predicting the future, but not in the magical, mystical sense. Scientists believe that the subconscious mind (especially during sleep and day dreams) acts like a time machine as it recombines fragments from past memories to map out the future.

In other words, the past and the future are inextricably linked. I think you can model this process by using cards  to represent individual memories. As you randomly move them around you effectively simulate what the mind does in the dream state. I've done a YouTube video to help explain:

What a fascinating collection of postcards you have.  I hope the "best selling novel" one isn't predicting a plague of Mary Poppinses  :)

 I did sneak in some cig and trade cards as well. I think it was seeing those butterfly girls on early cig cards and Liebig cards that got me interested in fantasy related items.
