‘To understand the future look at the past’. Confucius
The future can always be predicted in cyclical time as it will be like the past, and ultimately both will meet to form a ‘zero-sum cycle’.
This said there are in ‘pentalogic’, multiple points of view on the meaning of future.
In space, the future is the particle-head of information, because its logic paths define the motion of the rest of the system:
In time, the future is the causal ‘next’ action and step of the being, which keep accumulating with an excess of informative actions that will thereafter close that future into a cycle (3 of the demotions are closed informative, reproduction, perception and social evolution, 2 are lineal, open, locomotion and entropy):
In scales, the future is the whole, as the parts must come first to be able to create that whole and hence the actions of social evolution that ensure the survival of that whole:
In languages of the Mind, the future is the subject, the F(x) function, the first element of any ternary syntax, as it determines the action, the verb, the operand. The future always the negative age, when the mind learns the ‘perverse’ inversion of its existence that is the third age…because its world ecosystem will evolve faster than the individual and so as the individual ages it will become the past of its whole world, in which unavoidably the individual will lag in its evolutionary speeds.
In the ¬ entropic negation of all though the future is always death, when the zero sum worldcycle of exist¡ence completes itself.
For all those reasons, we write the future in the ¡logic jargon that changes slightly as ƒûður‹e, with the symbols for the ƒrequency of a system in its time cycles, which will return the being into a point of past-future; with the û symbol for a whole ‘universal made of parts’, the future of scales, and with the ðime symbol for cyclical, informative ‘Ðimotions’ of the head and the mind, to end the word with ‹e, the symbol < of entropic expansion and dissolution of the whole into parts, which is the final end-point of any being, which evolves first its information into the future, becoming a whole that will die into an entropic death: û<e.
As such the future is as all what exists ‘pentalogic’ in its dual causal, cyclical existence, and mirror symmetry, as you exist to have a period of growing > information and one of <<entropic death.
