I would say that for the time being it is just speculations, no more.
There are (at least) two ways to consider time.
(1) That the future already exists. We just have to wait for it to see what it will be.
(2) That the future and past doesn't exist. We create the future in front of us.
The implications of (1) is that we are just passengers in time, and cannot interfere with it. We have no free will at all.
In the case (2) we have free will, and we can change the future as we want.
