Inevitable vs. Imminent

The quote below was contributed by a large shareholder. Thank you. I think, in regards to the company, that it is a thought provoking and substantively correct quote (where "unravel," in the context of Provectus, is "unfold").
“Well, it’s true: “inevitable” is not the same thing as “imminent.” When people see that something is inevitable — and I’m guilty of this mistake myself — they tend to believe those things are also imminent, even when that’s not so. But the inevitable is inevitable, and that means it must happen. We usually can’t predict exactly when — and such things often take far longer to arrive than we imagine they possibly can — but once things start to unravel, they tend to accelerate quickly.” — Doug Casey
