  25. 25. Conclusion“Prediction is an ongoing process of arguing from the past to the future. This means an interpretation of evidence which involves a prediction. Predictions are always hypothetical, and can never be true because of the variable nature of the process. In this sense, predictions must necessarily be constantly revised in the light of new experience as the future unfolds.” By: Lewis, C.I. (1929), Mind and the world order: outline of a theory of knowledge, Dover publications NY.
