In my humble opinion, we are moving backward as we move rapidly forward...  Forward because of technology in the aspects of travel and communication...  Backwards because as human beings we are drifting away from caring about each other...  In the not so recent past neighbors wouldn't go a week without paying a visit...  And most times they left with more than they brought...  These days, years and even decades may pass and people don't even recognize their neighbors as they pass them in the store...  In the past, the family unit was intact with families eating together and doing things together...  There was only ONE television and people would sometimes rather just sit and talk...  These days the PDA, cell phone, computer and their prospective televisions take priority...  I realize this may not be the case for everyone but I can see with my own eyes that many people are loosing touch with their neighbors and their families...

Life is neither moving forward or backward. Each moment is eternal in spacetime. All that was or will be is happening at this moment.....just in dimensions we are not experiencing. Since the moment that spacetime came into being, it has always been and shall ever be.....NOW... :o)...len

When I think how fast the past becomes it tells me my life is moving forward.

Ann, won't you let us hear your answer too? I'd love to hear what you think too.

Life....My life is definitely moving forward.....specifically, because when you reach a certain age in your years, then you want to strive to make "New" memories....Most older people dote upon the memories of their Life's Path, failing to glean the memories that accumulate day to day...I find that when I decided upon a Bucket List, that I really began to take a intricate look at life....I feel that, perhaps ,I spent too much time glimpsing the childhood years, the dating years, the marriage years, and then the divorcing years, only to stumble across the recovering years...~!
So, NOW, my life is going forward....There are things that I cannot change with the world, only my plane of existence....I believe that life would be wonderful if most would bring positivity into their lives, but--hey---that is what Life's Paths are all about.....Life is not finding yourself, but life is about creating yourself....What you create is what you are, and I choose forward....

When our society no longer sees evil as evil, it is going backwards.  We no longer recognize evil and that puts us in jeopardy.

Backwards..... because it ain't moving forward.    Be right back I need to find something on my computer.
The following is from a paper I wrote two months ago
Things I see:
I see loss as my country turns its back on its creator
I see its tossed salad of people learning Satanís way of hate and following him without realizing what they are doing.
I see a country praising its economy based on greed with outrageous rewards for a few as its working class people starve and live in poverty.
I see debt being incurred foolishly without hope, or thoughts of repayment because the debtors are given too much and have grown to expect receiving it without commitments.
I see children improperly taught to think of themselves instead of others.  Selfishness built into a society as a way of life, never creates a benevolent civilization.
I see the eroding of the marriage and family.  Marriages now are throw-a-way commitments with neither party thinking anything towards what is being discarded, or what should be eternal.
We are going forward as we are rapidly approaching the predictions in "Revelation"  but backwards in morality and ethics in life.      We are the modern day Sodom and Gomorrah

... this is all within Godís plan and that while it is not necessarily His will that it happens, He knows that it will.  This is not denying us of our free agency with predetermined destinies, but rather His allowing ourselves to follow our own decisions Ö good or bad.  While He does not want this to happen,
He knows that it will.

Life is moving forward to me.  I have freedom and hope for the future.  I have been able to start a business and run it myself for the past 11 years without a loan, or a bailout from anyone.  I'm not planning on resting on my laurels, but just knowing I could do it once gives me confidence that I have more in store for me.  Starting life over isn't easy though.  I would like to help others reach their dreams too.

Are you talking about skills, wisdom, trends, lifestyle, and attitudes? If so I think we are moving forward because as it has been from generation to generation there is a lot discarded and plenty replaced along the way--change has taken us in a whole new direction where skills, wisdom, trends, lifestyle, and attitudes have evolved to keep up with change. Is it advancement? Now THAT is a totally different question altogether. Love these questions. I really have to remember to go back and read all of the comments that come after mine. Sometimes it sucks being the first to comment.
