Can You See?

I finally got around to watching “Minority Report” on DVD.  My favorite part is scene 16, which takes place in a sort of high-tech fantasy park — rather like Hollywood itself.  Rufus T. Riley, the hacker who works there, asks Anderton, “You brought a precog… here?”   When the reality sinks in, he exclaims “Jesus Christ!,” falls to his knees, crosses himself, and asks “Are you reading my mind right now?”

A Brief History of Time

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present
      in time future,
And time future contained
      in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is
      an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual
Only in a world of
What might have been and 
      what has been
Point to one end,
      which is always present.

— T. S. Eliot, “Burnt Norton”

Anderton and Agatha

Is it now?”
Good question, Agatha.
