    Korel Laloix: I did not break it this time.
    stevenaia Michinaga: have you giving any thought to how hindsight relates to reality?
    Korel Laloix: Not at all.... smiles
    Korel Laloix: To me, it is a good analysis tool.
    Korel Laloix: But has its limitations.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I usualty start with a dance with wikipedia
    stevenaia Michinaga: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindsight_bias
    Santoshima Resident: greetings
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi san
    stevenaia Michinaga: as usual, someone has give far more thought to this word than I could have imagin
    Santoshima Resident: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hmm, that;s actually "hindsight bias", which may be different than this week's theme :)
    Santoshima Resident: yes
    Santoshima Resident: a little
    Santoshima Resident: but interesting to read
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Korel Laloix: Back in a bit.. phone.
    stevenaia Michinaga: wonders if there is a phone booth over there
    Santoshima Resident: it's a payphone at the museum
    stevenaia Michinaga: I generally try not to second guess the past, but just learn from it
    Catrinamonblue Resident: sometimes it's hard not to second guess
    Catrinamonblue Resident: specially when your actions unintentionally caused hurt
    stevenaia Michinaga: actually a rather recent term Dictionary says it was first used in 1866
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, the what if I only.... instead of... thinking
    stevenaia Michinaga: hurt is so hard to predicet even when intentional


    stevenaia Michinaga: ponders how hindsight can be somethng positive in that instance, Cat, does it change regret for instance?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: regret expressed, making amends, becoming aware of bad habits of being, changing said habits
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, ty
    Catrinamonblue Resident: the last two months have been this process for me
    Catrinamonblue Resident: painful but in the end beneficial
    stevenaia Michinaga: you can;t have hindsight (or anything else for that matter) with out time
    Catrinamonblue Resident: time the great healer is also an enemy
    stevenaia Michinaga: I think there is always a choice
    stevenaia Michinaga: could be both
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes there is choice, I choose today to be happy, to not let the darkness overwhelm me, to just be in the moment and exist
    stevenaia Michinaga: :), always a wise choice
    stevenaia Michinaga: darkness can be so consuming


    Santoshima Resident: so can trying to "be happy"
    Catrinamonblue Resident: it's not so much trying as choosing. Hindsight can help us to make better choices in the future
    Santoshima Resident: hindsight is in the present is it not? reflecting on previous experience
    stevenaia Michinaga: what;s the forward version of hindhsight... foresight? Reflecting on the future
    stevenaia Michinaga: are both in the present?
    Santoshima Resident: foresight?
    Santoshima Resident: yup
    stevenaia Michinaga: you can;t have either without now... so both are in the moment... strangely
    Catrinamonblue Resident: reflections in the window, what I have done can not be undone but what I do tomorrow can be different
    stevenaia Michinaga: that is true about everything
    stevenaia Michinaga: growth and change are always options for the future
    Catrinamonblue Resident: nods
