"History is written by the future, and therefore distorted as its heart. There's no other way to write it, of course, but it always glows with the unnatural clarity of having eliminated all the possibilities that didn't happen. The present doesn't feel like a link in a chain leading to the eventual coherent historical event, and unlived futures infinitely outnumber the one statistically improbable reality that occurred."
