In the context of time the stark choices of the precarious present show their depth.  Walking back in time offers a series of distinct perspectives on the current situation.  A view from the recent past shows the pace and trajectory of change as it is seen and felt.  From further back underlying rhythms become visible, as well as the current divergence from established patterns.  The view forward shows a range of paths, which lead to radically different futures, all of them Earth.
