 Throughout the development of humans’ science on time, we still find it uncertain to control the future although the present is well managed. In addition, so many mysteries about future telling remain unrevealed such as in the case of Nostradamus’s quatrains, fortunetelling, and the Gypsy’s crystal ball’s reflection of the future images. These make many people wonder how future works in contrast with the religious belief that humans’ future is destined by the Holy Lord’s will which makes us doubtful why some destiny is so destroying and painful. This leads to our explanation in the arena of Dhammotronics.
 Referring to our chapters in Dhammotronics, the Law of Karma functions like the computer program that controls many realms of the Existence or samsara, the cycle of reincarnation. This program runs on the Operation System (O.S.) called the Trilakshna (the Three Nature) namely (i) impermanence (ii) sufferingful, and (iii) non-self, whereas the system is operated on the transcendental mainframes called ‘the Element & Essence Machines’ each of which is administered by the Holy Lord (the Wholesome Primordial Buddha) and the Evil Lord (the Unwholesome Primordial Mara or Satan).
 When we have either good or bad thought, speech, and action, our mental and physical deeds are automatically reported to the Transcendental Element & Essence Machines (wholesome machine & unwholesome machine). The machines will process the karmic inputs and generate the outputs in the form of merit energy and sin energy as well as the programmed karmic fruitions in the form of future returns. Then, the machines transfer the merit and/or sin and the programmed karmic fruitions back to be installed in our mind. Thus, humans who did good deeds in the past are programmed by the Law of Karma to experience good consequences in the present and the future, and vice versa.
 Normally, this whole process can be completed quickly within two or three seconds. It is the merit & sin energy and the programmed karmic fruitions that we can carry on to the future lifetimes. This is how Dhammotronics can explain the secret about future happenings as per timing and karma.
 However, as the Holy Lord and the Evil Lord still encounter each other in many ways including the battling, bargaining, interfering, and manipulating each other, these make the programmed future ‘uncertain’ somehow. But, basically, humans’ future is programmed or predestined by the Law of Karma as the aforesaid.
 To give a good example about humans’ programmed future, I would like to exemplify my own story. Before I went to the United States of America to continue my college education in 1993, at one night while I was sleeping at home in Bangkok, I dreamed of a scene where I was walking in the dark with two other men whom I did not know about. After I woke up, I could remember the dream which was so clear in my mind, but I did not know at all what it meant to me. Until I went to study English language at California State University of Los Angeles in 1993, one day, I accompanied two men who were my new friends from outdoor to enter the university’s car park building and my vision turns a little darker, when the scene matched my dream, I was surprised that it was exactly the moment which I dreamed of when I was in Bangkok. This is an example which explains well about our programmed or predestined future.
 To make the example more evidential, I would like to exemplify another dream. This dream happened longtime ago which I cannot identify the exact date. According to this dream, I saw a still image of a cabinet with the wording ‘After You.’ After I woke up, I could remember the dream, but I did not know at all what I meant. So, I did not mind it, and I forgot it completely. Until one day, when I went to the ‘After You Dessert Restaurant’ at Tah Maharaj Pier Shopping Complex in Bangkok, and I was seated at table number 10 where the cabinet is located adjacent to my seat, I was surprised that the scene of the cabinet with decorative wordings ‘After You’ did match my dream which I had long time ago. To clarify this, the After You Dessert Restaurant originated in South Korea, and it had no branch in Thailand when I dreamed of it for the first time. When the restaurants have been opened in many shopping malls in Bangkok, I still did not remember my dream. So, I came to realize that my dream was the image of my own future only when I went to the Tah Maharaj branch and sat down adjacent to the cabinet where the scene matched the still image in my dream. In addition, I have had ‘dreams come true’ like this for many times. But the dreams that do not come true are the dreams that I take notes after I wake up or the dreams that I tell others.
Note: The image of the cabinet at After You Dessert Restaurant which I saw in my dream is shown on the top of this web page.
 In conclusion, as per the Law of Karma, it does not mean that humans’ lives are predestined by someone and unchangeable at all. The mechanism which lies behind the future happenings explained in the domain of Dhammotronics makes us understand better about how future works, and it is still somewhat possible to reshape it, more or less, with our own present karmic effort, and it is ourselves who directly shape our own future, not anyone’s will.
