Background

A description of the experience

Henri Bergson – Time and Free Will

But we shall draw a distinction between those who think that the knowledge of antecedents would enable us to state a probable conclusion and those who speak of  infallible foresight. 

To say that a certain friend, under certain circumstances, will very probably act in a certain way, is not so much to predict the future conduct of our friend as to pass a judgement on his present character, that is to say, on his past.

The source of the experience
