The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows Scrooge his future inDickens' A Christmas Carol.
The future is the indefinite time period after the present. Its arrival is considered inevitabledue to the existence of time and the laws of physics. Due to the apparent nature of realityand the unavoidability of the future, everything that currently exists and will exist can be categorized as either permanent, meaning that it will exist for the whole of the future, ortemporary, meaning that it won't and thus will come to an end. The future and the concept of eternity have been major subjects of philosophy, religion, and science, and defining them non-controversially has consistently eluded the greatest of minds.[1] It is the opposite of the past.[2] In the Occidental view, which uses a linear conception of time, the future is the portion of the projected time line that is anticipated to occur.[3] In special relativity, the future is considered absolute future, or the future light cone.[4] In physics, time is the fourthdimension of the universe.[5]
In the philosophy of time, presentism is the belief that only the present exists and the future and the past are unreal. Religions consider the future when they address issues such as karma, life
