than we do. How “thick” the present moment is objectively may be difficult to  determine, especially since physicists often view the entire space-time  continuum-past, present, and future-as a single “block”. Physicists are  at a loss to explain why we experience time flowing in a single  direction only–from past to future–and quantum physics tells us that  events only exist in a determined fashion if they are observed or  measured. So there Is plenty of room for speculation in this area.


Whatever the explanation for this mysterious phenomenon is, if you live  in an earthquake-prone region of the world, then paying attention to the animals around you may not be a bad idea. California and Japanese  residents, like other people living along major fault zones on this  planet, don’t need to be reminded of the devastation that an earthquake  can bring, and currently Western science doesn’t have any reliable means of forecasting these earthshaking events. Tens of thousands of lives are lost globally, and billions of dollars in property damage occur on  average every year as a result of earthquakes. Any clues that may be  used to help us predict when and where the next earthquake is coming  should be approached with an open mind.
