Looking Backward

It would be interesting if Rhinos, or anybody else, could look at the Past without the filters of the Present. As far as Rhinos can see, it can’t be done. Data may enhance a look back, but it will never provide more than suppositions, how We would react today, given the past circumstances.

Knowing things is tricky, even for Us. Rhinos have more than enough Attitude to offer, but it is detrimental to Perception. A generous or sour Attitude, it still distorts matters.

There is a deep Gulf of Understanding between Now and Then.
