Source: "What's Your 200-Year Plan?" TEDxSummit. Apr. 2012. Conference Presentation. Additional Information: This quote is from a 2012 TED Talk given by the artist Raghava KK. This Talk is about creating an ultra long-term plan to positively influence what Raghava KK calls your "digital legacy" -- the lasting reputation left by your online behaviors. Even things as simple as controlling what pictures you are "tagged" in on Facebook affect your digital legacy, says Raghava KK. The quote means that the artist views the passing of time from an active, self-focused perspective, trying to anticipate events before they happen. He goes on to explain that by viewing the future this way, he can dodge what he doesn't want and pull in things he wants. Watch the full TED Talk her: Raghava KK - What's Your 200-Year Plan?
