I didn't want this to be the first post in a while but what the heck...
I've been thinking a lot about the nature of time again recently. Especially the future. Gibson's quote, "The future is already here - it is just unevenly distributed." keeps coming back to me, and it is very much inline with my thinking.
And as I was just thinking about it again a few moments ago, how what some might think is futuristic is very much "now" for others, I thought:
"What is now to me is in your future."
Which brought back an old memory, from Art History in college. Renaissance artist Masaccio's "The Holy Trinity" features a tomb at it's bottom, with a skeleton and the inscription:
"I was once that which you are, and what I am you will also be."
In that context it is very poignant of course. And absolutely not in the scale nor scope of what I am thinking of, but a neat parallel anyways.
