4.6. Summary of this chapter
This chapter explained the five future expression and the future perfect form (FuPF). The five can be classified into the two, that is, the near future and the far future.
The near future means the cause or the plan of the event is in the present, and the far future means it is not seen, that is, the speaker thinks the event on the spot. See the following figure.

a. Near future

b. Far future

The near future has the stronger relationship with the present, but the far future means weak since M is separated from the present.
