It’s laid out before me right now and it’s all underway.
And i can’t do anything about it either.
It’s all predestined and i can’t stop any of it.
Im a genetically predisposed choice making machine thrust into the world, what is my fate for the rest of this?
I could even chart out my own death right now, it’s all predestined and there is nothing i can do about it.
It’s all like a river, the river must follow topography, it can’t flow where it wishes in the least. “Well why don’t you just flow the other way river?!” They’ll shout and he just goes “im a river, thats why.”
Lots of the poor people feel that way. School was terrible, only okay to fill out Walmart or McDonalds applications. College is not possible or professors are jerks. Try to take minimum wage job to survive, live with the parents while you wait 4-years on Section 8 while you have 2-3 kids, then you cannot get by on minimum wage and end up dealing drugs just to survive.
These people feel fate. Military is an options with college education available later.
Some of the religious think it is God’s commandments and go harm people. The rest of us refuse crazy, call it free will, steer clear of the thugs/nuts/psychos and party as we can. We can even work schizod once we find an employer who appreciates our talents and personality.
I watched the theory of everything last night. OK movie , not great. Hawking developed his illness in his twenty’s he is now 72, You may indeed have this illness for the rest of your life , maybe that is predetermined , granted , but people do and can recover to live a decent and full life.
You may have a lifelong illness like Hawking - but you can decide to do nothing and focus on the negatives and the unfairness of it all - or you can decide to live the best life you can and work hard to make things better. And as in the case of Hawking, your life may be better than that of a lot of people who don’t have the illness.
