No way! The essential thing about life is you never know what's coming around the corner - whether it be good or bad. It's what creates our life, our experiences and shapes our character. If I knew my future I'd be fretting or waiting for it to happen and not focusing on the 'now'.

If you know something is going to happen and can't change it your just going to go around worrying about it.  If it involves something someone is going to do to you your going to go around hating on them before they do what it is that makes you hate them.

Going back to the OP, it's just occurred to me that if I was reduced to listening to Culture Club then I wouldn't want to have a future of any kind!

First, I would ask myself why he singled ME out to tell me my future.  Does that mean I shall attain world domination?  Or that I am destined to do something really great or really, really bad?  I would think that someone wouldn't be singled out for such a prediction, unless they have a role in something important in the future.  I'd tell him no, thanks, but then I would walk away with an extra bounce in my step, having fun making guesses at what huge thing I will one day accomplish.

And he walks the other way equally bouncy, 'cos he's just had enough time to pinch your purse!

lol I had planned to add that while bouncing away I'd be run over by a bus, followed by a steamroller.. End bounce.. My last thought would be:  I bet he was gonna tell me to watch out for that bus...

hey....I watched this movie! Bill and Teds excellent adventure! Party time- Excellent! No I would not want to know. It would make me feel programed rather than have free will,  I like to believe I have free will now. Yeah a heads up on the bus would be ok though!!

I worry constantly about the unknown.  I'm not sure if knowing the future would ease my mind, or make me even more neurotic.  I just don't know if I would be better or worse off.

It's hard to think about without it being a bit paradoxical.

If he does tell me what happens, will those events occur now that i know they're going to happen? Since now i know those events are happening, will i make different decisions so they won't happen?

Or if those events are going to happen no matter what he tells me, will those events have happened only because i spoke to him?

Maybe my future is better off just not asking.

Yes.

Then I would know what I can and cannot do, thus allowing me to better handle present situations.
