Most people are too imprisoned in the moment to plan with the kind of foresight, the ability to ignore immediate dangers and pleasures translates into power. It is the power of being able to overcome the natural human tendency ro react to things as they happen, and instead to train oneself to step back, imagining the larger things taking shape beyond one's immediate vision.
Most people believe that they are in fact aware of the future, that they are planning and thinking ahead. They are usually deluded. What they are really doung is succumbing to their desires, to what they want the future to be. Their plans are vague, based on their imaginations rather than their reality.
They may beleive thry are thinking all the way to the end, but they are really only focusing on the happy ending, deluding themselves by the strength of their desire.
