Inside this Book – Remembering is mind-wandering into the past. We can also wander into the future, imagining what might happen tomorrow, or next Christmas, or when the Antarctic ice melts. The evidence shows, in fact, that people spend more time thinking about the future than about the past. Nevertheless, there is a natural continuity between future and past, as time glides relentlessly from one to the other. What we’re about to do quickly becomes what we have done—assuming we actually do it. Sometimes we don’t, and when that happens we’re inclined to say: ‘Well, I forgot.’ Even forgetting, it seems, can apply to the future as to the past. Our ability to travel mentally into past and future, and the smooth continuity between them, underlies our sense of time itself. Although we can mentally travel in either direction, our physical lives are rooted to the present while time flows by. Downstream lies that singular event we all mercifully forget—or were incapable of remembering—called birth, while the lines of Isaac Watts’ hymn ‘Our God, Our Help in Ages Past’ remind us of what lies upstream.
