In English, future is ahead of us. In Aymara, it is behind us!

That is a better system actually, since we can see the past ahead of us, but not the future behind. We use the past to take limited guesses on what the future may hold.

It ain’t much different from walking backwards. We thereby sometimes miss seeing obstacles, topple over, …

If we deviate from the norms, we have higher chances of failures as we would know less of what’s behind. And we may also reach places not discovered before.
