Parshas Ha'azin is one of the most poetic sections of the Torah. It includes verses like this one 32:7: זְכֹר יְמוֹת עוֹלָם בִּינוּ שְׁנוֹת דֹּר וָדֹר
Remember the days of old; understand the years from generation to generation
My grandfather suggests that this is to be read that from זְכֹר יְמוֹת עוֹלָם, that is remembering the past, one would come to בִּינוּ שְׁנוֹת דֹּר וָדֹר,that is the causes of events in your generation and in your lives.
