11. The future is fluid

The following passage is from Michael Dummett’s, Truth and the Past (Columbia 2004):
The past is fixed, it is said, but the future is fluid: there are numerous possible future courses of events, but no one of them is the actual future course of events. Were it not so, we could not affect the future, just as we cannot affect the past.
Can you unpack the argument?
