Can somebody explain the implications of the well known Andromeda paradox in a metaphysical sense? First, does it state that all events are determined? If one observer already knows what happens on the Andromeda galaxy, could it be possible that that event still happened in an indeterministic way (by chance)? And also, what does the paradox say about the proper time of events? Does the Andromeda paradox imply that the future already exists, or that there only exists a 'latest state' of the object (or event) which will eventually occur sooner or later to every observer?
