The future ain’t what it used to be Mark Lewney, Mathematician and physicist

What will the Future be like, and why aren’t astrologers rich? Predicting the future has changed dramatically over the centuries, and modern Quantum Physics and Chaos Theory now tell us that very basic systems cannot be predicted, even in principle.
