“Men may react to future events by unconsciously translating them into art, or motion pictures. They may react by unconsciously taking certain steps of a political nature that seem at the time either unreasonable, or even incomprehensible – steps whose logic appears only in hindsight.
“The same occurs, of course, in all areas of human behavior, as well as the behavior of animals and even of plants. This future shadowing the present, or the future illuminating the present, represents a vital element in the formation of events as they are perceived in time.”
