One day you receive a brown paper wrapped package in the mail. There's no return address and inside the package is a thick leather-bound book with your name in large letters on the front cover. There is no author or other information of any kind on the book or inside the covers. Since you're curious, you open it to the beginning and start to read.
The book is a hand-written biography of yourself, starting with the day you were born. It is completely accurate and contains information you thought only you knew. It is neither critical nor flattering of you, simply offering the facts of your life as they happened. By the time you've read the book to a point a few years ago in your life, you are totally convinced that this book accurately portrays your life in detail.
Do you keep reading?
If you do, suppose that the book is blank after the point at which it catches up to the present but the pages are lined. If you believed that what you wrote on those pages would actually happen, what would you write?
