    The situation of not having the future severed from out of our minds implies that the past cannot be changed, and that the world is a never changing source of sure bets. If otherwise, in such a state, humans would try reversing their destiny to something that they find more interesting. Hence, the world would be in a constant state of futureding or a new tense of time - a past future tense where the world is in a state of fluctuation where actions change the outcome of the future and so the future would be madly volatile.
