As a vision and prediction, the Future can exist only in conscious mind

The Future consists of possibilities. Word "possibility" came from Latin "possibilis" translates as "what can be done" where the root "posse" means "to be able to". So, possibility means an opportunity to transfer from one condition at present time to another one in the future. Time is just a universal measure of those transfers which tells you how many events should happen before the future become present. Things do have their own futurity, but not the Future, because the Future must be predicted, modeled and understood. It actually required consciousness which will allocate for things meaning and future according to their semantic content, and a given orientation in the universal system where they belong to. So, the Future is not coming if we are not looking to it. We also should look as far as possible because otherwise the future may hit us by unpleasant surprise.

N. Kardashev had distinguished (depends on energy consumption): Planetary, Interplanetary and Interstellar societies like Q Race in Star Trek. As a race, the Q were immortal, but not absolutely omniscient or omnipotent, just possessing the ability of instantaneous matter-energy transformation and teleportation, as well as the ability of time travel. Their apparent abilities included moving entire asteroid belts and stars, creating alternate timelines, and affecting universal states of nature such as the gravitational constant. Type V Civilization can jump between Universes and can control the Cosmos.
