Which way to go?
The choice is easy, because there’s only one way we can: forwards.
Wraping around the side? That’s moving forward. Doubling back? You’re moving forwards. Staying exactly where you are and waiting out the storm? That’s forwards too.
We can only move through time in one direction. All other movement is secondary, and will soon be beside the point.
We each have only two things, which we share equally: this moment in time, and the next.
