When is the beginning of the end? That is the question, if we knew when the beginning of the end was near wouldn’t we change what we do today in this moment?
Perhaps some of us would and maybe others not. In most cases my research shows a definite altered pattern of thinking and doing once the end is made conscious. However, if the end is thought as very close all that matters is the now, the present moment. But if the end is known but still has no date, it is still unimaginable then the end is unending. The only thing present is continuing the sameness of today and completing the future as we imagine it to be.
