I agree, Dallas. It does. But not in the normal way that we think..
Virtually nothing just "happens" but rather an event occurs that
is experienced by individuals in their own individual way. Our
memory is plastic, and even the karmic records are plastic.

I know that they do exist. The problem comes when we try to
"read" them. They are, in fact, subject to subjective interpretation,
just like actual events are.

Yes, I believe that they are. I see the future blending into the
past and vice versa at some far distant point to form a very
large circle. Only the present really exists, and it only lasts
for less than a nano-second.

I agree that fortune telling is largely possible. I see it as viewing
possibilities rather than certainties, but possible events with
high probabilities often come true. My wife, Betty, for example,
told me we would marry and have two children, etc., right after
we met. So far, eveything she predicted has come true.
>I do admit that those are my surmises.
It pretty much is a given, Dallas, that everything we say here
is based on our own belief-system and experience, and that
everything we say is a "surmise" unless in direct quotes.
