I think you should realize how unspecific this phrasing is: as if in
English oen were to say, "the matter of tomorrow." Moreover, since this is
the object of OUK EPISTASQE, the indefiniteness is all the greater: I think
you could as easily paraphrase hOITINES OUK EPISTASQE TO THS AURION as "for
whom tomorrow is an unknown factor ..."
