Throughout the development of humans’ science about 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, and we wish to explain this 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 experiences.  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, 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 parking 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.

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 happening 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 deeds or karma, and it is ourselves who directly shape our own future, not the Holy Lord’s will.
