  • Past, present and future are, in fact, the main structural elements of time and both psychic and social systems embrace this structure to shape their decision making. However, as pointed out by NiklasLuhmann, the structure of time hides a paradox. We cannot, in fact, directly experience neither the past, nor the future or the present. The past is, by definition, already gone, the future is not yet there and the present vanishes at the same time we think about it. Although essentially paradoxical, this structure of time is the way systems orient themselves. Systems could not directly experience past, future or present but they indeed use this concepts in their everyday life.
  • The past is a collection of constrains that limits the possible futures. Even if the past could not be changed its memory keeps constantly changing present after present. As the future becomes past, both the actualized choice, the expectations and the possibilities left behind becomes part of the collection of future constrains. The uncertainty that characterize the future as horizon of open possibilities is further complicated by social expectations. In other terms the system with its past, present, future and expectations must deal with the fact that other systems with their respective past, present, future and expectations will act following the very same structure of time. Sometimes, as in the stock market, the future results of our present actions are inextricably related with someone else choice that is not possible to know in advance.

    6. 6. What is Big Data?“When I go to a restaurant, and look at leftoverson my plate, I dont see food, I see information.If the restaurant were Google, they wouldnt justtake that plate and scrape it off into the trash.There would be a camera in thekitchen, photographing every plate comingback, with analysis of what people liked anddisliked, and what portions were toobig, helping to optimize future servings“ (Jon Orwant– Engineering Manager at Google)
