Predicting the future

Have you ever seen one of those maps from the ancient world? Back when the only known places were Europe, Africa and some of Asia.

People weren’t sure what lay beyond their borders, so they filled the seas with serpents and monsters. No one had ever been there, so anything was possible.

That’s kind of what we’re doing when we predict the future. No one has ever been there so it’s possible that it’s full of monsters and bad news. But, it’s also possible that there is plenty of good news that no one can even imagine yet.
