What is the Future

Future is within the timeline what inevitably comes after the present but it hasn’t happened yet.

Future comes from Latin future which means “what is to come.”

Future translates in English as future.

Future is a verb tense that indicates that the action will happen. There are several futures that are grammatically divided into:

Future compound or future imperfect: indicates that the action will have occurred as if it had already been completed, such as, for example, “María will have taken public transportation to return home.”
Simple future or future perfect: is the absolute tense used to express that something will happen some time after the moment in which it is spoken, such as, for example, “John will have dinner with Mary.”

The future also expresses a perspective on something or someone as when talking about the vision of the future or the expression “what the future holds.”

In economics or in the business world, future means the success that a company or organization will have. If the company has no future, it means that it will not be a good business. However, if an organization has a great future, it means that it will be very successful.

Knowing or predicting the future is something that humans have tried to decipher since ancient times. For this there are prophecies that claim to be revealed by superior beings or by divine inspiration.
