"I went forward in time to view alternate futures, to see all the possible outcomes of the coming conflict."
"How many did you see?"
"Fourteen million, six hundred five."
― Doctor Strange and Star-Lord (Avengers: Infinity War)
"The future is not a single, straight path stretching out from the past. The future is like countless grains of sand scattered outward from the present. Though they may seem utterly different, each one of those countless grains is a future. To put it another way, each grain represents one of countless 'possibilities'.[...] However, to 'change the future' is merely to shift from one of those grains of sand to another in the vast, scattered cloud. And I have the ability to gaze down upon all of those grains from on high."
― Yhwach (Bleach)
