Aymara culture: concept of time
"New analysis of the language and gesture of South America's indigenous Aymara people indicates they have a concept of time opposite to all the world's studied cultures -- so that the past is ahead of them and the future behind."
In some sense, this is a more empirical way, than ours: the past is what you actually see, so it should be forward of you.. The implication of the future coming at you from behind is interesting..
