There is a quote from STAR TREK
Mirror Spock: One man cannot summon the future.
Capt. James T. Kirk: But one man can change the present.
What is the meaning of summon here?
predict or shape or maybe something else.
P.S. Curiously, the question is triggered by trying to translate a phrase from Rammstein's 'Die Zeit':
Zukunft kann man nicht beschwören...
