Then it ceases to be a prediction

I agree what you do now is the invention of your future

Honestly, the future is... The future. It's "inventors" are this current generation. Although there's a lack of fate, everyone makes their own future and contributes to a calendar future. Just my two cents. :3

Almost agree. That prediction, limited only to what could be invented, would be pretty narrow in scope. As another way of saying "If you want something done, just shut up and do it", I like it.

Yes...we need to take control as opposed to being a passenger in our lives.

Well said. I like that phrase. I've heard a number of speakers use it, also. (:

Great quote. I believe in order to create the future, you must look at the past and mistakes that were made. Inventing something new without considering past may not result in the future you want.

Yes! For many the past creates blocks to certain paths. The strong can overcome but that amputee is not likely to win a traditional bike race. Exceptions are not the rule. The past rules most.

Great statement jestana. I agree.
