Thought Experiment

I posted recently about time, physics' views of it, and its implication on philosophies concerning free will and time.

The experiment is simple and this.

If time is a river, and you the boat, and it is possible to paddle slower or faster to avoid "rapids", or something bad in your life, then how would you translate how far we can see down the "river". Is it then possible to see so far ahead (and behind you) that the journey is pointless if we suppose the goal is to go "through" time.

(This is assuming that time, as many physicists say, is more of a mental process than an actual property seperate from space)
