    If knowledge itself was a quantifiable substance

    The volume of knowledge about the future = The volume of knowledge about the past.

    I mean we know specifics of the past, like last nights lottery numbers, sports results, and we know specifics of the future like what time the sun will rise, if I push this button, the car will start…
    And we have knowledge of the past and the future that is not so specific, such as; when organic life began on Earth, the fate of the earth.
    And in between we have human history and predictions on future technology, government, culture…, neither of which are exact sciences.

    I think we all know the past and the future in equal measure.
