VAT: As the future becomes clearer, the past less so

The second law of thermodynamics states that entropy always increases with time. As such, it is easier to predict the near-future but increasingly less predictable is the distant-future. However, over time, as the distant-future becomes the near-future, it is more predictable. As to the past, it is always uncertain and becomes increasingly less certain over time, yet we often convince ourselves otherwise.
