-Onde estás?

-Neste momento sou Nisence.

-Que horas são?

-São trinta para as quatro.

-Medes o tempo para o futuro.

-É no futuro que me encontro, que me perco, que sinto, que me projecto...

-Projeta-te em mim que sou teu!

Interesting. Can't help but think of a few things...

Some people look mainly at the future, their actions determined by what they want to accomplish, by their dreams, their hopes. Others carry the weight and the lightness of their past right at their sleeve; that past has a strong hand on their present actions.

Perhaps people in the former group believe much more in their power to shape the future than those in the latter group, the "history recorders", incessantly looking towards the past to decipher the present.

Both types are needed in this world and I like to think that an overall balance is achieved (at an individual level I wonder what the percentage of people who manage to fairly balance the weight of past and future in their present is.)

It would be interesting to conduct some sort of empirical work about this with little things such as the way people tell the time when they look at a watch, how they relate to where they are physically (as in what you wrote), whether they emphasize what they want to become or what they have been, whether they see themselves more as children of someone or parents or potential parents of someone, etc, etc.

And are there any relevant patterns connecting these stances to choices of study fields and/or professional careers? To know that would allow us to understand how each group actually shapes the future. Maybe that could be integrated into those tests students undergo at a certain point of their lives (career orienting ones), although inductions of that nature may be abusive, particularly at an individual level.

Well, I wrote quite a bit here. I do like writing but “time is of the essence”. More importantly, I certainly do not want to overcrowd your space. Good writing!

O modo como eu vejo o mundo... Tão condicionado como o de qualquer outra pessoa.
