Before we reach its height.

from the ideas and traditions of others.

Regrets and their cousins, resentments,
are a huge cause of self-inflicted suffering.

to gain freedom from regrets about what you did or did not do,

to put the past in the past where it belongs.
However, sometimes a simple symbolic act can help immeasurably
to grant ourselves freedom from the past.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

as well from as having the perspective of imagination -
the realm of the what-might-be
inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.
