For any future being to like the past, the present must sit unencumbered.
Nonetheless, a perfect partaking of said present will only be acknowledged in the future as the past.
Surely, a future without a reliable past can only come undone upon reaching its time.
Mystical discoveries will only confuse; was that a saint or the equivalent of an orange orchard on steroids?
Horses in waiting will acknowledge few masters without an outside incentive.
A grove in the desert will wait for as long as it takes as it is always in the present.
Yet, an army on the march cannot abide the lack of war.
Without a future, there will be no one. and nothing, to cherish the past.
