Q: The Continuum didn't think you had it in you, Jean-Luc. But I knew you did.. We wanted to see if you had the ability to expand your mind and your horizons. And for one brief moment, you did. Picard: When I realized the paradox.Q: Exactly. For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. That is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebula, but charting the unknown possibilities of existence.
First, if it is true that a spatial order organizes an ensemble of possibilities (e.g., by a place in which one can move) and interdictions (e.g., by a wall that prevents one from going further), than the walked actualizes some of these possibilities. In that way, he makes them exist as well as emerge. But he also moves them about and he invents others, since the crossing, drifting away, or improvisation of walking privilege, transform, or abandon spatial elements.
The thing that I care about is-when I look into the future, I see the future as a series of branching probability streams. So you have to ask, what are we doing to move down the good stream-the one that's likely to make for a good future? Because otherwise, you look ahead, and it's like "Oh it's dark." If you're projecting to the future, and you're saying "Wow, we're gonna end up in some terrible situation," that's depressing.
