If given the opportunity to see into your own future, would you?

    Keep in mind that the future is always going to be based on actions you do in the present. Would you take the opportunity to look into your future and have that decide your present actions, or just live purely in the present undaunted by whatever the future holds?

    I probably would cause I'm curious like that, but with my luck, I wouldn't like what I see, but once I get there be ok with it.

    Is that future set in stone? If so, then nah, I'd rather wait and see what happens. If I can do something to avoid a bad outcome, maaaaaybe. I'd be really cautious when it comes to time travel stuff though. Ripple effects are real.

    While the future may not be set in stone, the problem here is being paranoid of the changes in the future with every action you do in the present. What I'm basically asking is whether or not you would be able to live with that. Even if your future is a good one, a simple slip-up in the present can change all that -- you know, the ripple effect and all.

    Would you be mentally prepared for the consequences (both good and bad)?

    Mentally prepared for the consequences? Probably not, knowing me I'd stress so much I would probably mess everything up (or think I did so)...

    Mm I would if it helped my passion and dream to one day either go to the Pokémon world or to bring Pokémon to our world~. I would never regret my decision...and I would love to hug the family I raised since gen 1 and 2.

    Sometimes I think it is wiser to not know and forge my own path than to know and follow and predestined sort of path just because I have an idea of what my future would be like.

    This would be a dilemma in two ways for me: If I did look into the future, I would probably stress about making sure it does or doesn't happen (depending on whether it was good or bad), but if I didn't look into the future, I'd stress that I was making a mistake by not looking into the future, and that it would give me valuable information.

    I would want to know, just so I can see the potential good that my future holds. If I saw something amazing, I would be way more optimistic about my life. Presently, I have a very dim outlook simply because I don't know what I want to do in my life. It feels like so many doors have closed for me that it's hard to even imagine what the future holds. I think looking into the future would give me at least something that I could work towards or away from.

    Noooo. I'd probably grow despondent over whatever I saw and wind up killing myself to avoid it. Either that, or I could become so fixated on it that I could pass up some amazing opportunities just to get a more stable, "guaranteed" future instead...which would be just as bad in some ways.

    Nah I'm good. I still worry about what my future holds and where I'll be in life even two years from now, so I'd rather not see it in case it's something I wouldn't be satisfied with. That and it's just weird knowing what will happen to you in the future... I like things being a mystery. :sweat:

    I think I'd rather wait and just experience my life as it continues along. Especially if I knew something terrible would happen. I'd just end up worrying about it for my whole life until it actually happened.

    I would look into the future to steel future-me's ideas. It's not plagiarizing if a) I'm the one who wrote it and b) it hasn't been written yet.
